T1 for 33+ years and so far zero complications. But I’ve recently stared having weird eye problems as of about three-four months ago. Started with bright flashes at the edges of vision when moving my eyes quickly. They’re especially obvious in low light or dark.Dr Google tells me it’s something to do with vitreous humor getting stiff and pulling at the cornea. Just an aging thing I guess. But more recently I’ve also developed this cloudiness, like semitransparent globs of goop in there. I’ve had floaters, but they’re little self-contained bits. This seems different: larger, more diffuse, and give the impression of moving rapidly across my visual field opposite to whatever direction I shift my eyes, which is really distracting. It’s also causing a lot of glare that makes it difficult to see in bright light.
Is that what retinopathy looks like? I’m guessing no, but I’ve never had it so I don’t know (I see an ophthalmologist every year at Beetham Eye Clinic in the Joslin Center and have always had a totally clear report). Cataracts? Vitreous Blob Disease??? Fortunately I have an exam coming up, but meanwhile I’m wondering if anyone else has experienced this and knows what it is.
