Anyone else on FTY720?

I have been on FTY for 6 months. Have had very good success but one big concern. I am getting these spots on my eyes or floaters. I know i never had them so bad or at all before but my Neuro insists it is irrelevant and nothing to be concerned about. I'm not so sure.
Anyone else on it and noticed anything like this?
Thanks for your thoughts
