Can any recovered sufferer reassure that the visual distortions go away, too?

So over the years I'ev had dp, I've done a lot of research on it, and it seems that some get dp/dr with various visual distortions, with them being things like afterimages, tracers, floaters, dots etc. Before I depersonalized, I didn't have any of those problems, except for some mild visual snow, that's it. I didn't even know what it felt like to have floaters, but once dp had set in, I started seeing afterimages and floaters rather quickly. Tracers showed up like a few years later, while I was still depersonalized.

I've read several accounts where recovered sufferers say that the visuals are usually the last one to go after dp/dr, but still -- since I'm in a really bad situation right now -- I could use reassurance from people have gone through it.



PS. I've had my eyes and brain checked several times, and they're all fine.

I'm on my 13'th year since I first got a taste of DP/DR.

I have floaters or lightning sentsitivity on and off. If I look up in the ceiling just a few seconds and look down again, I get any of these stuff "afterimages, tracers, floaters, dots". I don't know, I've don't worry much about this because I've realised that everyone gets this! You, me, your mom, your friends, the president of the united states.

I think that maybe when we have DR we tend to focus too hard on what is physically in front of our eyes. Also, all of our eyesight gets worse with age. Perhaps it's this in combination with us focusing alot on it that makes us worry about a non-issue?
