Go to your eye doctor. You might have a torn retina. That is normally fixed by lazer eye surgery.

Hi, sounds like you have the same as me, astigmatism. and to treat that you need glasses. mine started in one eye, as I got older, dr said it went to the other eye. I hate those lines they get in my way, lol even though I had it since I was a child astigmatism do not get better without glasses, they get worse, so see an eye dr. Hope this helps.


It sounds like these symptoms point to eye floaters or flashers. Both are considered harmless to your overall vision, so no worries. Although the floaters are pushing and pulling on your retina, so it could tear. But that almost never happens. If your worried I would make an appointment with your OD for a check-up. There are no remedies for floaters or flashers, keep your retina healthy by increasing your intake of vitamin A and Lutein.

Good Luck

hello sir
u hav symptoms called floaters
usually because of ageing it usually harmless
if u take 20 ppl 5 ppl hav same problem
but if u dnt hav flashes ( it would be like wen u switch on tube light it flckers initially ) that causes tears in ur retina
so if u hav only floatings dnt worry
hav ur retina examination wid ur eye doctor

You need to make a date with a Ophthalmologist to see what is going on. Meanwhile, google Amsler Grid and look at the dot in the center, are any of the line curving on the gird. If they are when you call the Ophthalmologist tell the girl you are making the appointment about the curving lines, also mention the black dots. And you do not need a referral to see an Ophthalmologist, you can call yourself. Please do it now, Don't put this off.
