Eye floaters have nothing to do with LSD or any other drugs. Everyone has them. SOme people notice them others don't. They are small bits of broken up neural tissue that form during fetal development before you are even born.

I have floaters for years. Mine are little threads of dirt which the eye-doctor saids gets in the back of your eyes. when I try to focus on one of them, they look like microes under the microscope. I haev lots in my right eyes and I also have cataracs which I am soon to have removed.

laser surgery and all that. been putting it off for a year. May not need glasses for reeading if I get them taken out but then each eye is covereed for six weeks with a patch.

My eye floaters, which ive always had, are mostly whitish clear dots or circles with strands to other dots. I only get/notice them some times. Normally outside where its bright, snow, sky, white painted walls with a lot of light.....

Dont really bother me, but i definatly started to notice them more after i tripped. I always figured its somthing on my eye, because when i try to move my eye to focus on one it moves with my eye movement so i cant.

Particles [Re: bluemeanie]
    #2321420 - 02/10/04 04:04 PM (10 years, 9 months ago)

I first saw the "particles" when I was a kid, but didn't see them again until I tripped for my first time in high school. I see them when I look at the sky, as tiny particles oscillating and swirling with entropy. I could believe that they are bacteria on your eyeball/in the air close to your eyes. Awesome perception though..

I see little micro-organisms or whatever that my eye magnifies, it's like a little clear bug swimming across my vision. It's cool when it happens but it's a pretty rare sight for me.

That is what i normally had, but mine actually formed into larger clumps after i got a health condition - they can get more severe with bloodsugar problems and thyroid conditions.

I've heard they are either dirt on the eyelashes, or you perceiving changes in the shape and size of the blood vessels in your cornea. Nothing to worry about... and kinda fun when you are bored in class, staring at the ceiling! Jeeze.. this is the second time I've posted about eye floaters today!

I barely ever get them... But yea i do see them sometimes, theyre really translucent.

However I do see things that I can only describe as ATOMS. Theyre are lots of them and they spin little circles, like theyre rotating around something, theyre sorta black... sorta. Only happened to me twice. First time was my 2nd LSD trip i was in a park and I layed down looking at the sky and got them. Then the other day it just happened out of nowhere. Pretty wierd.. something i cant repeat

I just noticed mine about a week ago. It kind of freaked me out because that is the first time I have ever seen them. I thought maybe since I have been eating a lot of mushrooms that had something to do with it. But there is no way to prove that, and now hearing everyone else talk about them before drugs it makes me more comfortable. If I only my next batch was done for this weekend. hehe Two and a half weeks!

So it sounds like you have the normal floaters inherantly in the eye from birth. Mine as i have said got to the point where i couldnt see my computer screen properly. Everywhere i looked there were large blackish spots - these are what genuine vitrious floaters are like. I wanted to check out someone's questionable connection to LSD use regarding these. I now know what caused mine, but my friend was concerned. Thanks for all your inputs

I get those "bacteria" floaters, but I also get spherical balls that float around every now and then, especially when I look up to the sky, ever since I tripped. Occasionally I see a bunch of them if I was doing something strenuous, and I almost get kinda dizzy. It's weird. Nifty at first, almost don't notice them now, but that might be cause I'm getting em less and less

Inside your eye you have a gel
This gel will coat the inside of your eye
This coating can come off the inside of your eye.
.. the light then reflex this in your vision
as if your seeing it...
It can't happen in the dark you would never even notice....

So it seems most are in agreement - "floaters" are something everyone has, and various environmental pressures can change their frequency, appearance, etc.

LSD (and mushrooms) might make them seem more prevalent, but only in the same way you "break out" during an acid trip. ;-)*

*If you've ever looked at yourself in the mirror during a trip, you know what I mean.
