…uhh, I don't even play an ophthalmologist on TV, but —
given you age, if you are nearsighted and the accident… you might want an eye exam… sooner is better…
especially if you didn't have one after the ATV tumble.
I'm working off the assumption that you were looking at floaters for a reason other than elucidation…

Posterior vitreous detachments (PVDs):
dilation for exam, someone will need to drive you

Nothimg new going on with my eyes...just happened to come across this info and it was more interesting than my day was.

TY. Interesting. I experienced that many years ago when I was in college in MI. It was late at night and a white light spot to the side of my pupil for a second. I was concerned. I was told it was in the blood vessel (as I vaguely remember). It was because I was so exhausted. It was nothing to worry about. And in the years since-nothing happened that I remember. So now I know it was a floater.

Sorry. I have around 20/20 vision now.

I've been dealing with floaters for over 30 years.
I went to the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins and basically I have to just deal with them.
The only true relief is when it is night time or when I am looking at a dark background. I see them against my computer screen as I am typing.

Another fascinating tidbit. Thanks John!

I went through a few years with Vitreous Floaters. My understanding these were attached and they would float over the retina and absolutely prevent you from seeing anything. I would have to move my eyes around until they cleared away so I could see again. I was told they could do laser surgery or live with them and they would eventually break away and be absorbed. I chose the later and although I have floaters (age related lol) the Vitreous Floaters did eventually clear up where they don't stop all vision now. Isn't getting old just a kick LOL

I'll be dang. That's exactly what the floaters looked like in my eyes. Sometimes i'd even dart my eyes around to see if they followed (they did). Entertaining little things. But truthfully, I haven't noticed them in a while. Wonder if they can go away. I'll have to google.

I think you just get used to them, but yes they can be absorbed and go away especially if they are from tiny broken blood vessels.
