: : I'm 16 years old and for about four months now i have developed some strange visual disturbances. Whatever i look at i can see thousands of little specks (spots, stars) darting about in my field of vision and it is really bad if i look into the sky or a bright surface. And every light i look at, i get a beam the width of the light coming towards my eye that will move depending on the position of my head. It looks as if it is snowing all the time. I have also got several floaters in my field of vision. I've had a brain scan and am awaiting further tests. If anyone is having the same disturbances could they please write back to me it is most disturbing. Help please !
: I am 17 years old and have the same problem
: I have also have a brain scan and the results came back fine, yet my mother has the same problems we think it might have something to do parasites but we are not sure.
: maybe we can talk about it.
Ryan or David...my son who is 16 also is experiencing the same phenomenon. He has been to a retina specialist who says his eyes are fine. We are currently waiting for an appointment with a neuro-ophthalmologist and hope to get some answers to this troubling problem. If you would like to write to my son his email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. He would love to discuss this with you.
