Question Seeing things not there

This doesn't happen very often once in a while especially at night I will see a bug or whatever, then I will look again and its not there. This has only been happening the last year. What could be the cause of this happening?

Hi intot, welcome to healthboards! It can be a " floater" in your eye or a something more serious in your eye, not your vision though. Have you had your eyes checked by an opthamologist? What other health problems do you have if any? My friend had this, the eye dr said a floater but she had an enlarged vessel in her eye that she would see through. She had headaches too. Anything else that you have like that?

Haven't been to the eye Dr long over due, last was 5 years ago that sounds like the most simple thing to check first thanks for your response just recently joined this board.

Re: Seeing things not there

Hi intothenight, since this involves the parts of your eye, like fluids, vitreous humor, retina,vessels in eye. I would look very carefully not to mix up the terms.[/list]1. Optician- someone that checks vision only & can cut glasses lens 2. Optometrist- a doctorate in vision & diseases of eye, only thing they can prescribe is a glasses or contacts prescription, possibly prosthetics can diagnose diseases of eye but cant prescribe medicine that requires a prescription or do surgery or invasive testing or surgery of eye3. Opthalmologist- a medical dr that can prescribe medicine, order & perform invasive testing and surgery of the eye regarding diseases, conditions, visual acuity(vision testing,glasses& contacts). Into, i would see an opthalmologist& these are my definitions of these drs from a regular point of view, my own. Lol
