Hi All. My vision constantly is interrupted by these "organisms". They follow my every eye movement. Sometimes I can see a tail and other times just a dot...other times both. It is so disturbing. Sometimes I think I am seeing things that aren't there!! Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks!!!!

research "vitreous floaters." Very common in Lyme and other conditions and/or idiopathic.

Yes, I get these constantly now. ALmost all my other sx have either gone away or are at least better, but the visual stuff is if anything getting worse.

I have floaters that are always there when I'm outside, although I don't notice them much when I'm inside.

I also just have general trouble with focusing, but when I go to the eye doctor to get checked, they can't find anything.

Yep: "vitreous floaters." - start with Wikipedia and work up to a couple other sites from there.

ANTIOXIDANTS may help. Get checked by your eye doctor just be sure all is okay. Most of the time, floaters are just old debris. Antioxidants can help to prevent these.

Mine are much better. Mostly gone after years of looking through some wiggly debris nearly all the time.
