This is Dr. David
it is normal to see small floaters in your eyes.
these are not small strands of DNA, but small particles in the fluid in front of your eyes which you can see sometimes if the light hits your eyes the right way and you focus very closely
if you are feeling like you are going to pass out, you should go to the local hospital for evaluation
you might have low blood sugar or dehydration or a heart problem.
the floaters in your eyes would not be causing you to feel like you are going to pass out.
are you on any medications?
do you have a hospital or medical center close to you where you can go for testing?
yes, I can suggest a strategy.
you need to go to the hospital for evaluation.
these floaters are not causing your problem.
you need a neurological exam and a scan of your brain to see why you are feeling like you are going to pass out
you could have low blood pressure
or low glucose levels
or something going on in the brain like a small stroke or bleed.
you are on the Isle of Man?
anyway you can get to a hospital?
there is the Ramsey Cottage Hospital Cumberland Rd, Isle of Man IM8 3RH, United Kingdom +44 1624 811811
Hi this is really affecting my life ....... I feel like I am going to pass out and need to walk along walls ..... to get my bearing ........ This has never been normal to me !!!!! Can you suggest a stratagy, Or any Help ?
I just saw your question and wanted to encourage you to attend hospital urgently.
I don't wish to alarm you but the fact that these floaters have started suddenly and are not normal for you could also be a sign of a detached retina.
If this is the case the sooner it is diagnosed and treated the better as the longer it is left the more the eye can suffer some permanant damage.
I see you are on the Isle of Man, can you get to the main hospital in Douglas for a check up?
I hope this is soon sorted for you.
