Suggest treatment for floaters in vision and dry eyes

Hi, I have been suffering from trails in my vision for one year now. When I enter a dark or dim lighted room from a light hall, I feel the door fram comes out of it when I am walking into the room. Or when I move my hands in a dim lighted place I see a hallo/trail of the hand following the movement wherever the hand goes. If I follow the moving hand with my eyes I dont see the trail! I only see it when I am not directly following the moving objects. It has been for a year now and it didnt go away in time. Today it is worse that the first time I noticed it. have been at 3 different eye doctors, no problem with eyes according to them (only last doctor said a little irregular cornea surface). Have done MRI of the brain which came normal. I also have developed floaters, starbursting , very dry eyes(eye doctor said it is not much dry!!!), and a little after images and headaches since last year as well. Please help, what is happening to my eyes? Can that be Palinopsia? Or can be something else? thank you

The irregular cornea can cause such things and you can use hard contact lens for the irregularity. But floaters are the foremost sign of vitreous and Retina pathology and you should get that checked.

If there are lots of vitreous degeneration causing you floaters we can do a floater only vitrectomy for the same.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
