Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer

Has this been of sudden onset? For how long has this symptom been there?

When was the last time you got your eyes examined by an ophthalmologist?

Does the cloud move with the direction of the eye movement or is it more like a floaters ( moves in any direction irrespective of the movement of the eye) ?

I only noticed it this morning. I was examined 3 years ago. They mentioned that the pressure was high. It moves with the direction of the eye movement

Hello,

Thank you for the reply and additional information.

Since the central cloud moves with the direction of the eye movement , I would say it is more like a scotoma ( non-seeing area within the visual field). Moreover a sudden onset is more indicative of retinal problem such as a branch retinal vein/artery occlusion/ retinal detachment. There can be other eye conditions with similar symptom but then are more of gradual onset. I don't think an optician would be of much help here. I suggest that you consult an ophthalmologist at the earliest for a detailed dilated eye exam( the exact problem will only then be clear).

Thank you and best wishes
