Eye Floaters

A spot in your eyesight is called an eye floater. They may appear to you as strings, cobwebs, or black or grey specks that move about when you move your eyes and seem to dart away when you try to look at them directly. Age-related changes that take place as the jelly-like fluid (vitreous) inside your eyes gets more liquid are what most often lead to eye floaters. Your retina may be slightly shaded by microscopic fibres that tend to collect in the vitreous. You are currently observing floaters, which are shadows. In particular, if you also experience light flashes or lose your peripheral vision, you should seek immediate medical attention if you observe a rapid increase in eye floaters. These signs of an urgent situation may need to be immediately observed.

Symptoms of Eye Floaters:

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