Hi all. I'm a 16 year old with hypochondria so these things cause huge anxiety! As someone with hypochondria, I have seen the opticians more times than the average person over eye concerns, and have not long ago had dilated eye exams and such. This symptom seems to be causing me stress however, and I'm increasingly concerned it's a permanent issue.
So, 4 days ago now, I was putting some rubbish in the garage. The garage is painted white, so the sunlight reflecting off was rather annoying - I squinted a lot to avoid discomfort (I am sensitive to light by the way). Soon after, whilst checking my vision over the anxiety of the situation, I noticed a tiny spec in the central vision of my right eye. I've definitely had this before, or something very similar, and it goes within about 3 days. This thing hasn't gone and, being a very anxious person, I of course blame the sunlight on the garage situation.
The tiny spec appears for less than half a second after moving my eye, or after blinking. And, only sometimes as well. If I try to look for it, sometimes I'll see it and sometimes I won't. Generally this is up against a bright surface, and the spot will disappear after a split second until I trigger it again. Again I've definitely had something similar. I've been assuming it's a floater that isn't moving, (there's another thing, this spec is fixated), and it always passes. I'm a little worried because this isn't passing and I'm worried about some damage done that won't repair. I'm very very worried.
