Eye floaters: How to get rid of them
Patients with eye floaters who have been told nothing can be done, or to wait for it to go away, aren’t being given the right information.
It is estimated that around 30 percent of the general population have symptomatic eye floaters, yet the impact of this common visual problem on a patient’s quality of life remains grossly underestimated.
Eye floaters are vision spots. They may look like black or gray specks, strings or cobwebs that drift about when a person moves his eyes, and they may appear to dart away when looked at directly.
Most eye floaters are caused by age-related changes that occur as the jelly-like substance (vitreous) inside the eyes becomes more liquid. Microscopic fibers within the vitreous tend to clump and can cast tiny shadows on the retina, which appear to people as floaters.
