I have had floater, or as I think they are for a few years now. I just turned 40, and I also noticed that the specs are getting worst. In both eyes I see black specs and extremely fine lines. They only move when I am moving my eyes, which means they are stationary marks. Originally they were really only noticable when looking at the bright light, or like a white wall for example. Now I see them all the time regardless of the level of light, or what I am looking at. To top it all off, I am a artist, so I am concerned. I suppose I should see an eye doctor, but my wonderful employer after 10 years has dropped our eye coverage. Any feedback from anyone, beside go to the dr, which Im sure I will end up doing.View Thread
