Floaters looking at sky
Helow i am highly myopic i LE and mild myopic in RE. when looking at the sky in daylight i see spot like floaters through my RE and strands like black something in my vision. i got my retina checked 5 months back by a scan and got a general check up with slit lamp one week ago and there was nothing to worry according to doctor. when i look anywhere there is no problem it's just fine but looking at clear sky in sunlight makes it worse and noticeable . what to do now?? i am afraid of retinal detachment..

Hello in eye we have 2 segments: anterior and posterior. In posterior segment we have a gel called vitreous this vitreous is made of collagen fibres. In some people, these collagen fibres gets meshed up and they start floating in vitreous gel when light enters the eye, these meshed collagen fibres cast a shadow on retina which is seen as floaters by patient. There is no treatment for this just avoid seeing them these are entirely normal consult ophthalmologist if these suddenly increase in number.

Absolutely nothing to worry if all yr retina check ups are normal. They are due to vitreous degeneration. So forget and enjoy life.
