Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Does this black object move like your previous floaters or does it stay in the same area?
Does is kinda look like a curtain coming across your field of vision?
How long has this been going on?
Is your eyesight affected in that eye?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
