Ok...well that is good news. That means the problem is not affecting the very important part of your central retina.
They are worried about any evidence of infection as those medicines can't be used when any infection is present anywhere in your body.
I very much doubt this is an infection. I agree with the plan to have a complete eye exam by an ophthalmologist
. From what you have posted I think that there is a high possibility that what you are seeing is from a large weiss ring. This is a large "floater" but, sometimes, it only partially detached and remains stuck to edge of the optic nerve. In these cases it doesn't move around like your normal floater.
This, in the scheme of things, is nothing to worry about.
Does this make sense to you?
