Eye Floaters! What are floaters in the eye? These can appear as small dots, or tiny specks or strings floating in field of one’s vision. These small dots can appear in front of the eyes or to the sides of the eyes as well.
Floaters of the eye can are noticeable the most while looking at brighter things for example looking towards light or up in the sky or a blank wall. Small clumps are formed in the vitreous that is the gel inside the eye that causes floaters in the eye. These clumps can be made up of proteins. Or, they may be made up of cells of the vitreous. Generally, they should not cause any pain or discomfort but unfortunately if they do, visiting an eye-surgeon should be the priority.
The appearance of eye floaters generally is in forms of black or gray dots, lines, cobwebs or blobs. These move as your eyes do because they are inside the fluid of the eye. Remember, if one tries to look right at them, they will dart out of his or her vision. Also, they are of different sizes. So, floaters larger in size may cast a shadow over one’s vision and cause a large, dark spot on one’s sight. Other important point is that floaters may appear in one eye or may be in both.
