Wow. So many of us!
I've had floaters as long as I can remember. As a little girl, I used to look out the window of the car and "chase" them around until they went "out of the window".
I've seen doctors for it. They say that it can be an early warning sign for detached retinas and that I should get that checked out periodically -- thing is, I hate to have my eyes touched and the one time I had it done the woman said that I was the worst patient she ever had and didn't want to ever see me again! I just cry and wince uncontrollably when anyone gets near my eyes!
Here's my trick. Ignore them. Sounds dumb, eh? But it's true. Your brain can learn to ignore them. If you stay in the dimly lit areas for awhile and don't try to look for them then your brain honestly learns to "see through them". It's not a cure. But it's worked for me.
Mine used to drive me absolutely batty...and then it was like I'd fixate on them more and more and look for them and it would get so that I'd see them even when I wasn't in a brightly lit room or outside or reading. Ugh. Stressful times seem to make this fixation worse for me. Now that I don't think about them (too busy running after DS), I had almost forgotten about them. (Of course, I just checked and sure enough, I have 100's of them -- one of the worse cases my doctor had seen, apparently.)
Not a cure exactly. But it's worked wonders for me. I'm so glad that I don't see them anymore, even if they're still floating about with me on a daily basis -- my old childhood friends!
