I do, but I have demyelinating disease. My floaters are associated with my brain lesions.
End Stage Severe Fistulizing Crohn's Disease (Diagnosed 40 years ago)
MS-like demyelinating disease (Humira induced brain lesions)
Spinal Stenosis cervical (with spinal cord flattening)
Spinal Stenosis lumbar
Severe Pulmonary Hypertension
Right heart failure

I have had floaters for years, and don't have any concerns about them. I sometimes flick them around by moving my eyes, the round ones look like flying cannon balls.

I get floaters constantly but a recent check up by the ophthalmologist did not find anything untoward.....apart from dry eyes...he gave me drops for those at least four times a day but more frequently the better...his words
It's enough to use them the four times...

when I am having a hard time I usually see my eye Dr. Back in the day when I received my first Dx of CD, it was actually based on the eye Dr calling my GI and telling him it looks like I had an inflammatory process going on.


Diagnosed= 1992 and again Feb 2012 Confirmed with
CT enterography May 2015 !!

Waiting for the ok from my Ins company to restart Remicade. Will also start Imuron to get into remission!
I know it's out there somewhere and I WILL find it!
