Hi! I'm a 23-year-old female diagnosed with lattice retinal degeneration in both eyes. Last May, I started seeing floaters in my right eye. I immediately went to an optometrist to find out what was causing them. She then said that it was benign. I was not satisfied with this so I went to a retina specialist in June. She said the same thing. that the floaters in my right eye were benign and were probably from me lifting heavy weights. In the last week of June, I noticed a small dot of floater in my left eye. I got worried and went back to the retina specialist for another checkup. She then dilated my eyes and examined them by using a headlight. She then said that I have lattice degeneration in my left eye but in my right eye it was benign, (but the right eye was the one with more floaters) she then suggested for a focal laser be performed. I went to another retina specialist, he said that I have lattice degeneration in both eyes (he just used the slit lamp exam and was able to detect lattice in both eyes, he didn't even have to dilate it) I went ahead and got both eyes lasered.
1. I'm still seeing floaters in both eyes, would they go away in time?
2. Why was the lattice not diagnosed the first time I had floaters? Why wasn't it seen during the eye exams I did prior?
3. What is my prognosis, I'm really worried.
please answer. thank you so much
