Oh yes, they're annoying as can be. I also try to avoid situations with too much light.
Might be a good idea to have someone check it out, on the off chance it is from any sort of structural damage.
I also get visual snow ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visual_snow ), which is super annoying when I go outside. Some days I can barely bring myself to look at the sky because the whole thing looks like a badly tuned tv.

Yep, i have a few of those. As a kid i used to lie in the grass and stare at the sky and study them. But i couldn't look directly at them, because they were sort of just outside my focus field. So if i moved my eyes towards it it would naturally move away from my focus.
I've been reaquinted with them after i got my dual monitor setup, when i look at the right monitor while the left one is very bright i see my old friends again.

As you get past...ummm...ahhh...30-ish like me, they seem to have invited their entire family over for the holidays and then nobody went home...
I actually have trouble reading small print because of them now...

It's a good thing you're getting them checked out now. In highschool, I started seeing a lot of them in my left eye, and it got to the point where half of the vision in that eye was gone. Luckily, I went to the doctor in time and he said that my retina was detaching. I had to get eye surgery a few days later. I remember the surgeon telling me that there was a 25% chance of going blind after the surgery. But the operation went fine, woke up after the anesthesia and I recovered faster than the doctor predicted. And then I had to get laser surgery in the right eye because the retina was beginning to detach as well. That was the most horrific thing i've ever experienced.
But that's probably not going to happen to you. You'll probably be fine. Cheers.

wow frightening story zord.
Yeah i get my eyes check regular because of them but you have to watch out for a burst or large increase of them because of what you had.
is your sight back to 100%?
I was just wondering if they annoy people like mine do??? apparently they are fairly common as the board has shown.
Also thanks for the replies everyone.
