    eye floaters

    Does anyone have experience with eye floaters? While staring at a white wall this morning i noticed something that appeared to be a tiny black hair in my line of vision. when i move my eyeball, it moves as if it's floating in water. if i move my eye rapidly and then stop my eyeball, the line moves rapidly then slowly comes to a stop and falls gently downward. it's really quite strange. anyway, does anyone have experience with this? i've also had some weird muscle aches and a headache today, though that's not abnormal for me.

    If they float, you may be eating too much fiber.

    kcult, sometimes you're funny. but at least you try.

    saqueen, i was wondering about this. i have a family history of diabetes (both sides), maybe my body is still healing from previous sugar binges? i've also been a bit dehydrated lately, i wonder how this factors in.

    I've had tons of them ever since I was a kid, which I was told by my optometrist is typical for people with myopia (near-sightedness).

    I hate 'em. I wish there was some easy way to filter the impurities out of there.

    They appear to be associated with aging probably the result of oxidative damage.

    Mine have improved *dramatically* in the last month or so, six months into primal.

    Interestingly, I just had a vision exam today and my vision has improved significantly.

    Hmm if I were you I'd test my blood sugar a few times, just to be on the safe side.

    I've got them. Eye doc says it's not abnormal. I hardly notice them anymore.

    I have a few. Don't even notice them anymore. I was told they are very common and that sometimes there is now explanation. But who knows.
