I keep getting shadowy streaks through my line of vision but it is never in the same place and happens more at night. Could this be anything to do with my inter cranial hyper tension
Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
A large majority of people i.e. around 70% of people would get some sort of streaks or floaters in their field of vision and this is not something to worry about at all. They are a normal part of the aging process and, most of the time, not considered a medical problem.
So it is not something related to your intracranial hypertension or anything serious.
Let me know if you have more questions.
