I'm waiting for the answer
hi. Just reviewing your question......
ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX this
Yes, it is possible for a floater to cover the center of your vision and then go away, but it would be rare for it to float into the same spot a couple of times and do the same thing.
Does it sound like a cataract
A cataract however, especially some types of cataracts, can have just a little pinhole of a clear spot in them that you can sometimes see through and at other times not.
Visine, as you may have already found out, won't help at all :)
I think you are doing the right thing by getting another exam and further opinions, like you are doing here...
So its possible to have a cataract and have clear vision and light does'nt bother me now.
From a retina point of view, it is possible that you have, in addition to the cataract, problems with the area of your retina called the macula.
Yes, it is possible. Is that the usual way cataracts act? Nope. But after almost 2 decades of retina practice I never say never anymore.....
ok--I just want to avoid the surgery if its not a cataract, but something is going on, I'll find out with futrther investigation
