User :   Hello. My vision has been very strange for the past few months and has been getting progressively worse. I see stars in EVERYTHING I look at constantly (like a million pixels flying around) and also have numerous floaters. Also, sometimes objects seem to bounce around very rapidly almost as if they are moving in squares. it is not smooth. My vision has been acting very strange Does this sound like an eye problem or CNS problem? if so, what? And is something like this curable?
