Eye dot, floaters, is there a cure

Hi,
Please somebody help, I have been seeing a black dot in my right eye for about a year now, I have been to the Doctors twice and have seen an optician, both told me that there was no problem with my eye and that it would eventually go away,
This hasn't hapened, I find it so frustrating that I dont even read anymore.
Since I got the black dot I have also started getting alot of floaters and some that seem to hang off the dot. I also have started getting non headache migraines, where there are heat waves aroung myy eyes, I never had this before the dot came.
I just dont know what to do about it???

Re: Eye dot, floaters, is there a cure

that's wierd because I've gotten the same thing! Since this past week, I've noticed a black dot and two blotches of yellow/red, just a little though. Also, I noticed a lot more floaters. I went to get checked but nothing was seriously wrong. Also I've noticed my eyes have been getting strained faster from computers. It feels good that someone can relate though. About how old are you cause I'm still young (17).

Hi, I'm 21, I think its weird that Doctors dont seem to beinterested though do they, I dont have any red or yellow, that sounds like a broken blood veseel, that might heal. Its so frustrating isnt it!!

yeah, I told him about eye pains and he was like "oh I don't know, must be something else". By black dot do you mean a dot you can see, or a dot on your eye that you can see when looking at yourself? Cause I mean a dot I can see from looking at the mirror. Also I always had eye floaters but now it seems a lot more. Even noticing it when watching some tv. I don't know if I'm just a hypocondriac (overreactor) lol.

Hi, no you cant see the dot that I have, I can just see it when I look at a plain background, you should get a second opinion, have you seen an optician?

Nah, I just go to a mall eye doctor thing, nothing fancy. I do have one floater that's brighter and more noticable than others .

Mall eye doctors probably don't have the equipment to investigate your problem. You probably need to see an opthalmologist. I'd second the motion to get another opinion. The opthalmologist might even refer you to someone else like a retina specialist who'd have even more testing equipment.
