Q. What could be the black dot I see that does not move on rubbing?

Hello doctor,

I see a black dot that has not gone away since yesterday does not move when I rub my eye or blink. It is more significant than floaters I usually see. It seems to move when I jiggle my eye a lot and moves slowly down after I shake my eye.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The fact that it is moving confirms that is also a floater but maybe newly acquired. Your age does not seem to put you in any danger of systemic diseases unless there is a family history of some genetic diseases. Marijuana does not seem to be the cause either. However, there is an increasing number of articles waiving about some side effects of CBD (Cannabidiol) products. I would suggest you visit the ophthalmologist for a more detailed evaluation to be on the safe side.
