    I have this question because before I didn’t have floaters in my eyes when I was younger but Now I do...can the floaters result from porn watching??

    uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh no, and even if somehow possible, zero medical research would exist on such an obscure concept. If you have eye concerns, talk to an eye doctor.

    Doubtful but since I started PMO at 17, I developed a dry eye condition and red bloodshot eyes. This may just be down to genes/environment/immune system at adolescence but I wish I hadn't fapped to porn because I spent hours and hours staring at pictures and at a computer screen downloading porn. I know it's a myth about masturbation linked to blindness but if I just didn't PMO every day from 17 then I wouldnt have put my eyes under so much strain. I regret it to this day managing this eye condition and I am 34 now

  5. Im no nut that thinks fapping causes everything, but i do believe it can cause eye floaters. I dont know how, but the same thing happened to me and they came after years of way overdoing pmo. Since then ive done some research on it and it seems like a lot of people have the same promblem. Obviouslyit doesnt happen to everybody and it could be coincidencebut i believe its somehow related. Also, i should mention that i got my eyes checked and they came back fine and the doctors couldnt figure out why i had so many floaters at my age. Anyway, thats just my opinion

    Yeah I also went to the doctor and they said they were normal and that I just have to live with it... it’s kinda sad cuz I’m just 13 and I have so many eye floaters
     
  7. Well, some of my research suggests you can get rid of it though long abstinence, so tbats something you can try. Other than that, just know that you'll get a lot more used to them. When i first got them they drove me crazy, but I've had them for years now and i dont notice them nearly as much

    Are those floaters permanent? I too see them but not on a regular basis.

    I have floaters, no idea what they are or why I have them, but okay, I'll ask a doctor about it.
    Maybe that is why fapping makes you blind. :D
    Nice Varg avatar :cool:

    No. The eye forms in utero (which is why babies have big eyes - eye don't grow), floaters are the leftover vessels trapped in the eye and have been there this whole time. You don't always see them, they have to float in between the lens and the retina, and usually when you're looking at something relatively bright, like a computer screen. Eye strain or changes in blood pressure may have caused you to notice them more. (Think about it...where is your blood when watching porn?)

    The blindness myth may have a very very small grain of truth in that your blood is directed to other parts of the body while masturbating which when combined with standing too quickly or orgasm, may have caused fainting or temporary blindness.
    You know a really good orgasm when the edges of your vision go dark :)

    I highly doubt it, get some sleep mate because it sounds like you're tired or straining your eyes. I'm having floaters because my sleep is shite from this insomnia.

    Also, if you have anxiety that'll make you spot them as well, usually they're there but you just don't notice them.

    I'd vote yes because of depleted adrenal energy and endocrine system disruptions, through porn use combined with overexposure to artificial blue light and EMFs. All of this combined can cause irritation of your nervous system. Exhaustion, stress and weird symptoms like eye floaters are the result thereof.
