    moving "spots" in vision
    Gryphon9 posted:
    For the last three days I have noticed 2 spots-patches-objects (I'm not sure what to call them) in my vision of my right eye only. One of the spots stays stationary, but the other moves arround, if my eye doesn't move the spot moves lower in my field of vision, but after my eye moves the spot moves and again continues to fall. Blinking or rubbing my eye has no effect( I havn't used eye drops yet as any liquid in my eyes is very painfull). I was hoping this would go away as I don't have the money for doctor visits. I'm not that old, only 24, the spots aren't painfull or blocking my vision but are very annoying. please any info on what this may be would be vdry helpfull thank you.

    I am no expert. I have this too from what I know its the retina flaking off and its normal so don't be alarmed. Your eye should absorb it in a couple of days. When it moves around in your eye that is it flouting around in your eye.

    I am not an expert it could be something different but that is what it think it is and I don't know what it is called.
