    My retina specialist -- Dr. Lucy (no kidding) Young at Mass Eye & Ear -- told me the same thing. She also said, "Your body is a symmetrical organ, so the floaters that just appeared in your left eye will probably appear in your right eye within a year." She was, sadly, correct. "But your brain will adjust and you'll get used to them pretty quickly, so no surgery required." At the I insisted she was wrong, but six months later she was, again but happily, correct. Next time I'm going to ask what happens when a retina specialist gets floaters! Do they have to retire??
