I've got this little guy that floats in and out of my vision periodically that's been around for about 8 or 9 months. It's just this weird shadowy thing that pops up especially when I'm staring at large, light surfaces (ex. the white board, open sky, a computer screen).
Just a few days ago I went to the eye doctor to make sure it wasn't retinal damage (since some meds I take can do that), she dilated my pupils and took a look. Apparently it's all good (I'm not going blind) and just a normal sort of thing!
Which leads me to my question: anybody else got floaters? Are they shadowy, too? How common and occurrence are they for you?
If not, have you heard anybody talk about having them? My eye doctor says it's pretty common, but I've never befriended anyone else with them.
