Eye floaters are usually reported as small floating shadows (like a mosquito or fly) that continuously keeps coming and going out of the field of vision Eye floaters are most commonly due to vitreous degeneration. Vitreous is a gel like substance that fill the eyeball behind the natural lens. Sometimes this vitreous gel starts to liquefy and the small non liquid gel particles start floating in these liquid areas giving rise to floaters. Most common cause the natural degeneration giving rise to posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) leading to a ring like floater called Weiss ring. Other causes like Inflammation, vitreous hemorrhage or Retinal detachment can lead to floaters. One can also perceive flashes when the retina gets irritated.
Next Steps
It’s advisable to meet the ophthalmologist so that he can take in detail to ascertain cause of floaters. Most commonly it is because of PVD as described earlier, and does not require any treatment. But if the floaters are due to Hemorrhage or Retinal detachment appropriate treatment is recommended at the earliest.
