Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have had constant after images in my eyes for the past few months. My eyes often ache and I am slightly short-sighted. However, I do not wear glasses full-time. I also see floaters and my vision is also very grainy. I feel like I am going crazy as I am constantly seeing them. Please help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your query and understood your concern.

After images and floaters are two different things. After images are seen physiologically by everybody after looking at bright things and light and are perfectly normal. You may have simply started noticing them now. Floaters occur due to changes in vitreous gel inside the eye. I suggest you get a retina evaluation done by a specialist doctor. Floaters fade away with time. So do not worry. Use your glasses for grainy vision.

I hope this has helped you.

Thanks and regards.
