I have a lot more than just floaters. You are right, you are just 19 and you have a full life ahead of you. Seeing the right Doctor is so important. I lost sight in my right eye due to Cancer. I see optometrists at Sloan that is a Cancer specialist, a retina Specialist and a glaucoma specialist. They help me with the pressure in my eyes. Just got back today from seeing the latter two Doctor's. I was taking one drop twice a day, now I'm up to 3 different drops, two steroids I will take 4 and 3 times a day for 30 day. There are people who will help. I'm 62, if you need to talk Email me. wizof103@nycap.rr.com

Hi Christian. I know what it is like to have only one good eye. Yes, you have to be your own advocate when it comes to your health. If you have eye pain and you are seeing flashes of lights please go to an opthamologist or a specialist like a retina doctor. I have been told by my eye doctor that flashes can mean a problem in the retina.Keep trying. There must be an eye doctor to help you somewhere. Try online too. You may have to travel to get to a doctor you need. Good luck.

Yes it is important. I don't know why the doctors brush you off. In my opinion doctors who don't care about people who relally need their help are stupid. If you want to talk about anything feel free to write me. We can talk other ways besides this message board if you would like to.
