Re: Are these floaters

When I asked my optometrist about floaters, he said everybody gets them and you'll get used to them. I trusted him and hence unnecessarily and unwisely delayed going to an ophthalmologist for several years . Don't make that mistake. Floaters are not normal in any sense of the word. jmo
