Shimmery glare / starbursts

Hi there

For the last month or so I have been experiencing a big onset of glare around bright lights (eg LEDs, fluorescent lamps, sunlight reflections off cars, glass etc). This seemed to start around the time I noticed a large dark new floater in one of my eyes (although the symptoms are present in both)

I've had starbursts around street lamps etc at night for years, but this is a lot worse. Going for a drive on a sunny day is a nightmare, everything is reflecting the sun and causing massive glare which appears sort of glittery or shimmery. I suspect this part may be caused by my hundreds of tiny floaters falling downwards inside my eye.

I also seem to be getting a lot more eye pain than usual

I've read some other threads started by people with similar symptoms, but none of them came to any conclusion. I went to my doctor yesterday and he started me on some eyedrops, and has said if they don't help he will refer me to a specialist.

Anyone got any info for me?
