Eye Floaters

Eye floaters are spots in your vision. They might look to you like black or gray specks, strings, or cobwebs that float about when you move your eyes and seem to dart away when you try to look at them directly. Most eye floaters are caused by age-related changes which occur as jelly-like substance (vitreous) inside your eyes becomes more liquid. Microscopic fibers within the vitreous tend to cluster and can cast tiny shadows on your retina. The shadows which you are seeing are called floaters. If you notice a sudden expansion in eye floaters, contact an eye specialist immediately mostly if you also see light flashes or loses your peripheral vision. These can be symptoms of an emergency that requires prompt observation.

Symptoms of Eye Floaters:

  • Black or gray dots
  • Squiggly lines
  • Threadlike strands, which can be knobby and almost see-through
  • Cobwebs
  • Rings
