    Eye floaters and flashes

    I used to have a lot of eye floaters in my eyes. I thought it is pretty common and I ignored them. Lately, these floaters have increased considerably and have started to disturb my vision, I can’t see the bright light without having floaters in it. I love being able to give the gift of memories. That’s why I loved my camera since I was a child. I’m very passionate about photography. I...

    Any other option?

    I'm young and I have really bad eyesight that seems to change every year. I am already at -9.75 and I am 17( 18 in 21 days!!) My glasses are thick and I hate contacts. I asked my specialist about Lasik she said I am not a good candidate and is not an option ( not because of my age), because my eyesight is not stable and I have been watched for glaucoma and retina detachment. I would like to know...

    Eye problems for 4 years!

    Hi everyone,Since mid 2012 I have been experiencing eye problems. Up until the last few weeks it was only occasional and always put down to the effects of migraines, without the pain of them. I had many tests, MRI's and heaps of optometrist examinations all deciding it was migraine related. I had been relieved but also slightly skeptical as my issue seemed strange. One minute I can see...
