FLOATERS​: Treatment



FLOATERS​ Treatment

If you notice small black floating spots drifting across your field of vision – known as eye floaters – you might be concerned. Eye floaters appear as small specks, dots, lines, or cobwebs in your field of vision.

They often occur because the jelly-like substance inside your eyes, called vitreous gel, becomes more liquid or separates from the back of the eye, known as a posterior vitreous detachment. As a result, microscopic proteins within your eye clump together and cast tiny shadows on your retina. They’re more likely to develop after cataract surgery or if you have diabetes or have had an eye injury. Eye floaters may also be more pronounced if you’re very near-sighted. 

While they seem to be in front of your eye, they are floating inside and casting shadows on your retina. Because the floaters are inside the fluid of your eye, they will move as your eyes move. If you try to look right at them, they will dart out of your vision.

Eye floaters commonly appear when you stare at a bright, plain surface such as the sky, a reflective object or blank paper. Eye floaters may be present in only one eye, or they may be in both.


Once you have them, eye floaters never really go away, they usually get better with time as gravity pulls them down and the brain “tunes them out.” Most patients report their floaters improve greatly over 3 to 6 months.Generally, no treatment is recommended unless eye floaters obscure your vision or are a symptom of a more serious condition.

If large floaters are in your central vision and affect your quality of life a retinal surgery, called a vitrectomy, may be performed to remove them. Floaters can also be treated by a laser procedure called YAG vitreolysis.

In some circumstances, new floaters can be a sign of inflammation (UVEITIS) in the eye, especially if you have eye pain or blurry vision. Occasionally, eye floaters may be a warning sign of a tear or detachment of the retina than you will notice sudden increase in eye floaters, especially accompanied by an abrupt loss of vision, flashes of light, shadows, or a gray “curtain” moving across your field of vision – seek emergency help right away in both the conditions.
