    Hello everyone,

    I am new to all this so please forgive me if I’m asking dumb questions.

    I just started reading the book Yeast Infection No More and found something very exciting in the intro. The author mentioned one of her symptoms was “floaters” in her vision.

    I have been to three neurologist over the past five years (the last one I still see on a regular basis)for migraines. I have tons of visual floaters (i.e. little and big globs of squigly goo floating in my field of vision) all the time. They intensify after a carb-rich meal (especially a sugary one). Many of them are the same ones I see all the time. I’ve even named a few of the larger ones.

    I told my neurologist about these and he sent me for tons of tests and even to see an eye specialist. The verdict was persistent pre-migraine aura. When I asked why they intensify after eating sugary foods, he said it was just coincidence.

    I found pics on the internet of yeast cells. These pics look extremely similar to the buddies I see in my vision (i.e. the floaters). The doctors said if I had any kind of yeast in my eyes I would have gotten a severe infection a long time ago and probably lost my vision all together.

    My thought is that if you can see the white blood cells moving around the blood vessels in your eyes when you look at the blue sky (known as the “blue sky effect”), why couldn’t you see yeast cells? The doctors said because any ueast in your eyes would surely be a bad thing.

    If anyone can point me to what these floaters are and why someone with a yeast infection gets them I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Rob

    I’ve got floaters. Have noticed them since I was in highschool (30 years ago). They don’t look anything like migraine auras, in my experience. In fact migraine auras are quite different.

    One question for you: are you very nearsighted? I’m very nearsighted and from what I understand that makes it easier to see floaters due to where the focal point in your eye is. Most people apparently have floaters, but if they’re not nearsighted they may not notice them.

    Nope. I have very good vision.

    I have had floaters my whole life too. However, they got significantly worse about a few years ago when all the other candida stuff got worse. Surprisingly, my migraines got significantly worse the same time the floaters got worse which also happened to be the same time my candida stuff got significantly worse.

    These floaters are way different from the usualy migraine auras I get. I believe the migraine auras are call scintilating scitomas (the jagged flashing lights and blind spot).

    The author mentioned she had floaters and implied it was related to her candida issues. I was hoping someone could explain the link between candida and floaters.

    I also have eye floaters as well. I never had them until I got into this Candida nightmare. While I unfortunately can’t answer your question Rob.

    Personally, I wouldn’t worry so much about causes the floaters. It seems the medical community has very little knowledge about Candida and some doctors even think it’s pure fiction. There is a lot that is unknown about it still, but fortunately some nice people Able & Raster have been able to beat it; and they are here to help us do the same. IMO I would focus on learning the strict diet here and stopping what feeds the yeast.

    I personally think floaters come from taking drugs, especially hallucinagens like LSD. I used to get them a lot more often when I did more drugs but I don’t get them anymore.

    I used to get a few types of them. One type was the large random spot/object at the edge of my peripheral vision. These were sometimes colorful and always went away after blinking. These ones more likely relate to drug use in my opinion.

    Then there was these random “cellular” type orbs I would sometime see. I believe these are more related to poor circulation and body condition. Candida and health problems contribute to this.

    If you get the cellular type ones I mentioned, I would examine blood circulation, physical fitness, and blood oxygen.
