I recently have had a drastic increase to the number of floaters in my vision. My eyes feel dry as well. I went to an opthamologist who said the retinas are fine. They are very bothersome. I've not had any recent fevers. Should I still be concerned with this?
Response from Dr. Feinberg
If your retinas have no evidence of disease, then don't worry about it. People develop floaters as they get older.
