Hi Rev Cat,
Glad to hear it was "only" PVD and nothing more serious. I've got PVD in both eyes too, and notice lots of floaty blobby bits.
Hopefully I will eventually stop noticing them. Like most symptoms, I find they are worse if I am tired or stressed, although I must admit I do occasionally find it vaguely entertaining to watch them whizzing around!!
Just to close out my contribution on this thread... Ophthalmologist confirmed I have PVD in both eyes and a particularly large 'blob' in my left eye, but basically I just have to put up with it and eventually I'll stop noticing it. When I pressed him about Tam and AIs he was very non-committal (and seemed not very interested). Overall then, good news. Just need to think more about font sizes and stop trying to read lying down!!
Thanks Catseye (seems an appropriate name somehow!!)
I'm not looking for a Tamoxifen link, just know that there is a nice vague allusion to 'vision changes' on the side effects list. Trust me, I'll be very happy if it is "just" because I'm severely myopic!!
Have a look at the "Eye checks on Tamoxifen" thread. I don't think PVD is associated with Tamoxifen, but it certainly is associated with moderate to high myopia. Hope all goes well at your appointment on Monday, Revcat.
I am currently waiting an ophthalmology appointment because the vision in one of my eyes has become very blurry (now for about 4 months). The optician thinks it is probably Posterior Vitreous Detachment (PVD) due to me being very myopic, but my BCN agrees it might be linked to Tamoxifen. I have now been given a cancellation appointment for Monday coming (2nd Sept) so will report back when I've been.
I, too have been on Tamoxifen for two and a half years (just over two when this started)
