I can see worms or wormlike shapes floating inside my vitreous fluid.

  • 1
Went to Wolfe Clinics last year but they found nothing maybe they didn't test the right way ? I can see worms or wormlike shapes floating inside my vireous fluid. My eyes burn and water and feel tired. A recent suppliment made my night vision much I should get more. Drs won't listen or can't see them. I have had lazer surgery abt 10 years ago they did some lazer scar removal then said they could do nothing more. My vitreous gel came apart a few years later. They said it was normal at my age and would get better. I have vision corrections implants. Waiting to sleep in my dark bedrooms  I could see multiples wormlike and longer floaters in my eyes. Tome they appear to be swimming. I use eye drops daily due to my eyes burning lately feel like napping due to the way my eyes feel. Am 70 female take no meds just D and K plus Calcium and B vitamins.

The strange worm-like specks that may occasionally drift through your field of vision are known as floaters. These are pieces of tissue that have broken off in your eye and are floating in the fluid. Most eye floaters are caused by age-related changes that occur as the jelly-like substance (vitreous) inside your eyes becomes more liquid. Microscopic fibers within the vitreous tend to clump and can cast tiny shadows on your retina. The shadows you see are called floaters.

If you notice a sudden increase in eye floaters, contact an eye specialist immediately — especially if you also see light flashes or lose your peripheral vision. These can be symptoms of an emergency that requires prompt attention.
