Re: Photopsia but no RP

I am soooo jealous! I am 20 years old. I have had this problem for as long as I can remember. I used to love watching the colorful swirls at night. I used to have better than perfect vision then. Then, I don't know when it happened, the pattern changed. I see colorful static that I can't focus on. But on the contrary, I developed dark masses that swirl around the peripheral vision, which I focus on by NOT looking at it (they shift when I do). I miss my personal kaleidoscope.

It is nice to know that I am not the only one. I wonder what it is. Mine became very annoying. From a few swirls, the static obstructs my vision as if I am looking through a fine mesh. I really remember how they looked when I was very young. I loved it. They seemed to have their own flight pattern like migrating birds.

Re: Photopsia but no RP

continuing my post above:
I haven't been diagnosed with anything. I haven't been to an optometrist in a while and when I was they checked the usual, which doesn't solve the photopsia issue.
