About two days ago i noticed a small black dot in my eye which

Customer Question

About two days ago i noticed a small black dot in my eye which is visible when looking to a white wall. I have searched and thought it could eb an eye float. I am 34, and i am on a good diet, the only thing is i spent lots of hours in front of computer but i always take breakes and also use drops in case my eyes grts dry. I had a lasik surgery 13 years ago. I decided to get an appointment from a doctor and she examined my eyes telling me evrrything looks fine. Have perfect sight etc.. thr issue is since then i am sensitive to light soecially night, and also i feel i am not seeing things clearly sort of blury which might goes away time to time. As i type this message i kind of see it blury but on a very low degree but still it bothers. Is this an eye float,? Or its something else? I can see small black dot in my eye even at night but no flashes. Shall i get another apointment from another optometrist? I am actually doing that on monday because i think if i had an eye float my doctor should have told me that. Please advice. By the way i had this blurry vision before which i got rid of it by using a drop my doctor recommemded same time 2 years ago. I have been taking eye supplements long time.

How about the small black dot i see in my eye which moves when i scroll around? What is that, that is not a sign of eye float?

Expert:  Dr Chaithanya replied 10 months ago.
When have you checked last with Ophthalmologist?
Expert:  Dr Chaithanya replied 10 months ago.
This seems like a floater, according to your explanation. Do you have persistent symptom of black dot appearing or only sometimes?

Expert:  Dr Chaithanya replied 10 months ago.

Is there a specific method or procedure to take to see if its a floater, is there an specific examination they do and they see??
