Please e-mail privately and I will tell you what I know. The "floaters" can
be QUITE disconcerting when playing and reading music at the same time. I
suffer the same problem with "floaters" and my problem has been diagnosed as
a form of Uveitis. And, yes, there are treatments available. The most
progressive studies have come out of the U of CA at SF. Anyway, I'd be
happy to share what knowledge I have on the subject.
