Eye floaters - a wive's tale?
    #2313533 - 02/08/04 03:38 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I read on a site recently that eye floaters and vitreous floaters are associated with LSD use. Anyone know anything about this??

Yeah floaters are normal...I had them when I was an innocent sober kid.

But...they seemed to have increased since I smoke pot...

I've had the exact same floaters since I was a kid. I can like identify them. I don't know what the fuck they are, but they're harmless and give me something to do when I'm bored and I want people to ask me, "what the hell are you looking at?"

I recently started to see these things. I think it can probably be caused or at lest increased by drugs because I didn't saw them before I started smoking pot.

There are bacteria and organisms that are on the surface of your eyeball. When you're stoned/tripping etc you're more perceptive to their existence.

This explains why some of you had them when you were innocent sober kids.

It's also been covered many times before...

that website is full of shit, IMO

I too saw them before using any drug - they are most easily visible from my experience while looking up at a nice bright blue sky

  i noticed them before hand,
but it wasnt untill i took diferent hues of consciousness that i apreciated them.

like s2dope said , your more perceptive to their existence when on drugs.

like strumpling said, they are easiet too see when looking at a nice clear blue sky
  i find that also a technique for making eyesight better called "sunning"  makes them obvious as well.
  and with eyes closed looking towards the sun they light up and beam.

also, using a candel and wetting your eyes with either "tears", or water then squinting and looking at the light, you can make a sort of focusing lens, a microscope.  playing around with this you can focus independantly on diferent specs and enlarge them to desired size, although there are limits before your eyes close  :smirk:

ive noticed about 3 extreme diferent "peices"  although im sure theres more than that. long stringy ones, and the short round ones are more obvious too me.

ive also noted that they seem to apear when your not looking for them.
as it is, they are On your eyeball lens, so when you look for them you
constantly move your vision and them.
and if you see one, then try to "look" at it it moves with your vision.
the best way in my opinion is too just stare blankly at the sky and if you start too see little specs not too look directly at them
try to grasp their image with your peripheral

they play a great part in how you see reality IMO

now there are other things i "see" that i could imagine them associating with LSD contributing.
but there are alot of things to "see" and they should not mix up "floaters" with other consistencies.
  like seeing energy in its raw form, a foaming vibration of light specs.....
wich your more in touch with after trips...
or sometimes when i stretch i see little white dots float around. not eye floaters.
someone told me its from lack of oxygen, maybe.
  i call them faeries because they have a certain consistancy that is almost material, and i have no personal control over when they come, leave, and what they do.

i could see how they would say that its "associated with LSD use"
most peoples awareness is dwindled so that they cant even notice
how well a piss excavates the body.  :wink:
but when normal sheep get ahold of some LSD they become more aware
of the situations playing out around them and what goes on to and through them.
and  eye floaters are a tiny portion of what there is too "see"

The best way to see these floaters is to walk around on a bright day when theres snow covering everything and look at the ground in front of you. Walking around right after a big snowfall when footprints and tiremarks aren't all over the place in a big open area like a parking lot or grass lot is ideal. I've been able to see the exact shape of the bacteria that sits over my pupils and its pretty facinating. Walking for like 5 minutes through a snowy parking lot instead of the shoveled sidewalk was one of the more peaceful/calming non-stoned moments I've had in the past few months

Well I know my friend said his floaters increased in size and number after he took acid a couple of times. I never had (or noticed) them before he told me that he had some. I started noticing them after that. I had taken acid 3 or 4 times before I started noticing them, and now I have a pretty good number. I don't think acid has anything to do with it really, but I do know that I notice them more often as a result of talking about them. Mine have also done some crazy things while on psychedelics.

My friend said that the doctor he asked about them said that since the eye is just a sac of fluid, sometimes its consistency is not...consistent, resulting in floaters.

They've never really bothered me as you won't notice them unless you are trying to or if you are bored. If you are doing something important you will probably not notice them. Like I can't see them now but I see them all the time on my cigarette breaks.

There might be, but those are not the eye floaters.

"Floaters are actually tiny clumps of gel or cells inside the vitreous, the clear jelly-like fluid that fills the inside of your eye."

I see those all the time. They look like donuts or solid circles. They move around and look pretty cool. I usually see them after I leave a bright place (like outside during the day with snow on the ground, light is reflected everywhere) and walk into a dark place.

Interesting amount of responses guys cheers.
The floaters - as Anno states are not bactiera, they are actually proteins clumping in the vitreous gel of the eye. I have always had small ones but i got them on october last year so bad that i could barely see out of onw eye - all i could see was brown fog.
It turned out that this was due to an unrelated health condition, but the weird thing was that the other guy who i triped with last also got them after his trip without the underlying health problem i got. I thought id check out connection - and was interested to see if other had noticed this.
My friend thinks that pot caused his - while mine have a more clinical cause.

Well, can someone describe what a floater looks like?

I sometimes see dots of color when I look at something bright then turn my head really quick and stuff like that.

I've noticed that when looking up on a cloudy day I see what looks like little tadpoles buzzing around in the clouds.. Which I've been led to believe is shit buzzing around in my eye... But, who knows?
