Hello
Welcome to Health care magic

I am Dr Dadapeer k an ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.
I reviewed your history.
It seems from the history that you are having problem of seeing a circle like thing in right eye.

This usually indicate floater. Floaters are because of opacities in the posterior part of the eye behind the lens in the vitreous. Vitreous is a gel like structure and it lies behind the lens. It gets degenerated because of increasing age and in people after the age of 60 years it gets broken into fragments resulting in opacities resulting in floaters.

The other common causes for vitreous floaters are vitreous detachment.

Most of the times these floaters does not cause any problem and will resolve slowly. However examination of the posterior segment of the eye by indirect ophthalmoscopy is required to rule out associated retinal conditions like retinal tears...

Hence I advice you to consult your eye doctor for examination of the eye on safer side, if it comes normal then no need to be worried.

Hope I have answered your question and the information is helpful to you.
Do write back to me for further questions.

Thank you
