@JessicaLynn - I'm glad your grandmother didn't experience any complications from this illness. The complications sound fairly unpleasant.
I actually stumbled upon this article because I've been experiencing floaters recently. I'm kind of a hypochondriac, but I guess I can probably rule this condition out because I'm not over 65!
Either way though, I think I'm going to step away from the Internet and just go to the eye doctor at some point next week.
