Brief Answer: This is age related degeneration, no need to worry Detailed Answer: Hello Welcome to Health care magic Iam Dr. Dadapeer K, an Ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye. It seems from the history that you are seeing wavy pattern in the eyes. These are commonly called as floaters and are seen in elderly people. These are because of age related degeneration involving the vitreous which lies in the posterior part of the eye. As told by your doctor these are common problems and no need to worry. But you need to worry if there is sudden increase in their number and pattern associated with flashes of light. Otherwise no need to worry. Hope I have answered your question and the information is helpful to you. Thank you
