Vitreous Floaters - Squiggly lines in the eyes.Squiggly Lines: Floaters

They are known as "floaters" or "benign floaters" or "vitreous floaters": A blurry spot that seems to drift in front of the eyes but does not block vision. The blur is the result of debris from the vitreous of the eye casting a shadow on the retina.  We call them "Squiggly Lines"!  More info below.

Hi Ten years ago, I got posterior vitreous detachment in my right eye and got few floaters ( one large) and these are still there. But, couple of days ago, in my left eye I got same thing. Immediately vent to hospital where PVD was detected without any retinal tears. Now I have very large floater in left eye and really, itís not only distracting but rather incapacitating. Blocking reading or working on PC very difficult. If I would be selected for YAG laser vitreolysis, how long I have to wait before procedure, because PVD in my left eye is in early days. Thanks Jacob
