Dr. Holodniy:

I recently noticed that I have floaters. They are the web kind and the transparent kind. I went to the eye doctor to have him check them out and he couldn't find anything wrong. But on my chart he circled vitreous floaters. If I had CMV, would he have caught it, or would my body have fought it off already. It's been about a month since I first discovered them. Thanks a lot.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

He should have been able to determine if a CMV retinitis or vitritis was present.


is a test for the virus in the blood, accurate early?
Concerned about my numbers
