Is it normal to only have floaters in one eye?

Also, I have a constant feeling like something is in that eye? (like something is stuck). I was at the eye doctor in the middle of Dec 2006 for a complete eye exam and didnt mention the floaters, but he said my eyes were fine. I do wear glasses for distances. I am also being monitored by my family doc for high blood pressure. My brother and dad both have eye floaters as well. Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks
I’ve had the glaucoma (air puff) test done in Dec. The floaters come and go I might not notice them for weeks or a month or so and than they come back. The feeling of something being in your eye comes and goes as well especially comes when my eye is really dry
It is floaters, they are specks and i do try to look at them and and they keep moving, almost out of sight. It’s like the floaters won’t allow you to look right at them

Chosen Answer:

Floaters can be due to Posterior vitreous detachment, Retinal detachment, eye injury/break down of vitreous humor, or just growing older.

Are you sure you see floaters? Floaters are small specks, strands, webs or clouds that move with your eyes when you try to see them.

A feeling that something’s in the eye is actually a sign of dry eyes.

If there was any serious problem, your doctor would’ve detected the last time you’d an exam. But i am not sure if what you have ARE actually floaters…therefore, i’d recommend seeing a doctor again. Just to be safe. Or just call that same doctor and tell him your symptoms…and see if he recommends you visit again.

Don’t be worried. But be concerned.

Hope this helps :)

    Make an appointment with a retina specialist, not just a optometrist, as they are better trained and have more advanced equipment with which to inspect the eye.
    Floaters coould be a indication of something more serious, but not in every case.

    It is very common to have floaters in one eye. The fact that you have a feeling something is in your eye, however, is not normal.
    Did you have the feeling of something in the eye when you saw the eye doctor? Even if you did, it is best to see an Ophthalmologist. You could have an allergy or you could have an infection in that eye. If you are being monitored for high blood pressure they should have done a glaucoma test on you at the eye doctor. (a puff of air in the eye). But glaucoma wouldn’t give you the feeling of something in the eye.
    Again, floaters are normal, more people have them than you think. The feeling of something stuck in the eye is not a normal thing, you should have it checked out immediately.
