Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Very unlikely that this is caused by a parasite. There would be other ocular symptoms in the vast majority of cases if this was true.
Also, retina problems, while they can be associated with new-onset floaters, tend to present as a curtain coming across your vision from any direction, a "fire storm" of flashes, or loss of vision. From what you are telling me I don't think you have anything to worry about on these accounts.
Does this make sense to you?
Thamks - I've had continual ear infections and wondered if connected? Need surgery for cist.
Good afternoon and welcome to chat.
No. No relationship between this eye issue and ears....

OK - since they were new and moving unlike floaters it seemed odd. I've noticed various blogs that are connected with same
PS they tend to the more hysterical...
Your description sounds like floaters. Since it is new it is possible that there has been some bleeding inside your eye or you are having some inflammation.
OK - well I think it's a visit for an eye exam - thanks and goodbye
