I went in early this morning for an appointment with the eye doctor. I told them how a I was seeing an odd spot in the vision of my right eye, especially apparent whenever I looked at light, blank surfaces. The doctor dilated my eyes to ensure there was nothing wrong with my retina. When there wasn't, he said it was just a "floater." We all have floaters, he said, some more apparent than others. It's not harmful. Would mine ever go away, I asked? No, it won't. But I'm just noticing it a lot now because it's new. Pretty soon I won't notice it at all. Why, the doctor himself has a major floater.
