Lot of Floaters in eyes after lasik

HI All,

I am Lasik induced patient and suffering from last 10 yrs or so.

I have noticed recently that I have got floaters in one of my eyes which are disturbing my vision. They are lots of them some are thread like and some don't go away.

So wanted to ask few questions...

Scleral Lense - Black Dot

Azyter didnt help doxy worth a go?

I tried topical Azyter which didn't help I couldn't tolerate the drops so tried putting the liquid on a q tip and brushing over my glands. Those this didn't help either. Would Doxy still be an option. My problem is inflammation as on steroids my meibum glands work perfectly again....

Does anyone else have to walk around with one eye closed because it's more bearable.
