left eye..Today I feel a very light pressure in the eye

Resolved Question:

In the last couple weeks, I've noticed an occasional cloudy spot in my left eye. I've only noticed it at night, and it's brief. Today I feel a very light pressure in the eye. I'm 36, have type 1 diabetes (since I was 9), and I had cataract surgery on that eye in April 2004. It's now the weekend so I can't get an appointment with my ophthalmologist. What should I do?

Is it like a mosquito moving infront of your eye?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
No, nothing like that. It's a brief, very light (almost clear) spot that appears sometimes.
Expert:  Dr.S Riaz replied 7 years ago.
You could be having posterior vitreous detachment in your eye. Most of the time, it is uneventful, so you need not worry. But I could be wrong as I have not examined you. If there is any decrease in vision or a lot of floaters appear before your eye, see your ophthalmologist early otherwise you can wait till Monday.
