Can anyone recommend something to prevent still more floaters from appearing. I also have shadow floaters. Ugh.

Also, twinkling in the periphery.

Am I vitamin deficient. It's getting harder to see.

When I herxed I had those really bad. I still have them every now and then. I'd like to know what to do to get rid of them too.
Have a blessed day!

Floaters are a symptom of Lyme Disease. I think treatment just intensifies it for some of us like it intensifies other symptoms we have. My muscles hurt worse too. I noticed, for myself, the floaters seem to be getting better. I don't have as many now.
Have a blessed day!

Thanks again. I have both kinds of floaters: cob webs and round circular clear things that form clusters and then rings and then elongate.

Obviously, this is a bothersome and sad symptom. But what Lyme symptom isn't?


Glad your's are improving. That is encouraging.

I notice floaters when I have a herx.
My theory is that if you take something that penetrates the blood brain barrier, dying microbes try to escape the brain cavity through the nearest exit. This would be the eyes, where they escape to and die.

Some people take pycnogenol for floaters - I take it but hasn't helped yet.

Hi hopingToFindCure! We have floaters too. I know this is a symptom of lyme, but "cobwebs and floaters" are also symptoms of potential retina detachment. You may want to see a specialist to determine what is going on. Be sure to tell your lyme doc and ask if you should see a retina specialist. Best wishes to you. bablymers mom

been tested twice but not by a retina specialist...all he said was your eyes are healthy. . . no need to worry...but he did say "oh, you have some floaters!"

I already knew that! I have recently developed the imprint problem, where I look at an object and its outline is still there until it floats away. Don't know if it's related to the doxy, which immediately after upping the dose to 200 mgs, I developed twinkling stars in my periphery that comes and goes, especially after exercise or periods of stress.

Oh well. Will google the suggested antidote. pycnogenol ...I kinda think I'm outta luck. They just keep coming -- gradually. Will try and get used to this symptom and all the others...this new me is not something I like very much, but I suppose it beats the alternative.
