Floater survey
      #32544 - 04/22/02 05:51 AM

How many of you experience floaters? are they small or big? in just one eye?
No, i don't believe that floaters are caused by ARS but i still wanted to ask.
Thank You

I'm starting to see floaters in my left eye, they are puntiform tiny and black (no spiderwebs, no flashes) and drift in my field of vision. Maybe they were there since i was born but i simply never noticed them this much. Do i think they are HIV related? not much. Hope this helps with your statistical survey. Hugs

floaters occur in late stages of AIDS. everyone has floaters from time to time that are not AIDS-related.

I have floaters in both eyes. As a matter of fact the appearance of floaters threw me into an HIV panic since they began to appear 5 months after a potential exposure. I began to read everything I could about the correlation between HIV and floaters.

However despite my exhaustive research and all of the professional opinions I received from retina specialists, Opthamologists, Internal Medicine Doctors, etc could find nothing. Oh and I forgot - I've had 5 negative ELISAs in the past 15 months. I guess that's all the proof I need.
