Customer Question
The floaters in my...

The floaters in my left eye started suddenly. At least I did not notice them before. It looks like threads going from the top of my eye to the bottom of my eye and seem more noticeable in the morning.they move with my eye back and forth. I also notice some dark spots which is a new symptom in my left eye as well.

Doctor's Assistant: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?

My last check was in April. My vision is generally good. I have had floaters in my left eye that have been there a long time. The new symptoms are in my right eye, not my left.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing new.. I have been on more of a protein diet for about two weeks now. Woulld that factor in?
