From the patient’s point of view, floaters are objects that drift around in the field of vision. They may look like blobs, little worms or cobwebs that move with the eye’s movement. They seem impossible to focus on and are most visible when looking against a bright plain background such as a blue sky or a blank computer screen. Floaters are in fact particles suspended inside the vitreous body – the gel-like structure that fills the space between the lens and the retina. What we see, however, are not the floaters themselves, but the shadows they cast on the retina. The closer they are to the retina, the larger and clearer they appear in the field of vision. Commonly, floaters develop as part of normal aging. With age, the gel-like vitreous body undergoes syneresis – a process in which water is separated from solid components, creating pockets of fluid that are perceived by the patient as blobs or little worms. The major structural protein of the vitreous – collagen fibrils – become denatured, clump together and can be seen as floating strings or cobwebs. The fluid pockets may collapse, causing the vitreous to shrink and pull away from the retina. This pulling exerts mechanical stimulations on the retina, producing flashes of light or photopsias in peripheral vision. Eventually, the vitreous is separated from the retina. This is known as posterior vitreous detachment or PVD. PVD is very common but is generally benign and does not require treatment. The floaters may be a nuisance to vision, but in most people, the brain will eventually learn to ignore them. Complications may happen, however, in a small number of cases. As the vitreous detaches, it may pull the retina with it, resulting in a retinal tear. Fluid from the vitreous may then sip through the tear and cause the retina to separate from the underlying tissue. This is known as retinal detachment and is a sight-threatening condition. Worrying signs to watch out for include: - A sudden increase in number of new floaters, especially tiny ones as these may represent pigments or blood cells released from the damaged retina or blood vessels. - A shade or curtain of vision – a sign of loss of vision from the detached part of the retina. People with high degree of myopia are at higher risks of having PVD. The longer shape of the eyeball in myopia increases the likelihood of PVD and also the risk of retinal complications. This is because the retina is stretched over a larger surface and becomes thinner and more vulnerable to tears. Other risk factors for PVD include intraocular inflammation, trauma, previous eye surgery, diabetes and family history.

Everything You Should Know About Eye Floaters

Ever seen Eye Floaters or Floaters? This video is about Floaters In Eyes. What Are Eye Floaters. Are Eye Floaters Dangerous.

One of my favourite notifications is your comments and as you may already know more often than not I'll get back to you with a reply and heart. If you'd like more information on any of the questions I've answered or have a question, then let me know so I can try and either dedicate a video to it or get back to you in next months responding to your comments.

A few of my favourite questions/comments from this video are:

1) Can you please do a video about floaters. - 00:22

Floaters and flashes are usually harmless, if you sometimes see:
• Floaters – such as small dark dots, squiggly lines, rings or cobwebs
• Flashes of light

In your vision, it's not usually a sign of anything serious, especially if:
• You have had them for a long time
• They're not getting worse
• Your vision is not affected

Flashes may stop by themselves, and floaters often become less noticeable as you get used to them.

When to get Urgent Medical Advice:
• Floaters or flashes appear suddenly
• Floaters or flashes suddenly increase in number
• You have a dark curtain or shadow moving across your vision
• You also have blurred vision
• You also have eye pain
• Floaters start after eye surgery or an eye injury

These could be signs of a serious problem with the back of your eye, which could permanently affect your vision if it's not treated quickly.

The list above can change and update with time. The NHS have a useful page all about when you should seek medical advice on this topic which can be found at -

2) A day without watching Abraham the Pharmacist is a FOMO full day. You are doing great sir. Love from India.

What Are Eye Floaters? Symptoms, Causes & Treatment

Floaters are very common, and are usually nothing to worry about.
Usually they tend to sink out of your vision fast enough for them
not to bother you.

In rare occasions, new floaters and flashing lights can sometimes
be an indication of retinal detachment, a potentially serious
condition.

If you experience floaters suddenly, especially with flashes of light,
contact your local store or GP immediately.

Mayo Clinic Minute: What are eye floaters?

Having vision problems? Do you see black or gray specks, strings or cobwebs that drift about when you move your eyes? It could be eye floaters.

Eye floaters are more common as you get older and if you’re nearsighted. The biggest concern, they can cause retinal tears.

And that can cause blindness, which is why it’s especially important to have a dilated eye exam within days of noticing new floaters or changes in vision.

Eye Floaters CURE? - Atropine Eye Drops for Eye Floaters Explained

Are Atropine eye drops the next eye floaters cure? Learn how Atropine drops work and how you can try it for yourself! ///// Full explanation about floaters and other floater treatment options ????

Eye floaters commonly develop as we age and can be very bothersome for a lot of people. Thankfully, eye floaters often improve on their own, but if they don't improve and if surgery is not an option, then some doctors are turning to small dose atropine for help.

Atropine eye drops are typically used as a diagnostic and potentially a therapeutic medication for eye exams and a few eye diseases. Traditionally, it has not been used for treating eye floaters but t some doctors are prescribing a low dose 0.01% atropine to help improve floater symptoms.
Being that this is a newer trend and not fully widespread, many doctors may have not heard of using 0.01% atropine for floaters and even finding a compounding pharmacy can sometimes be a challenge, meaning it may be difficult to get low dose atropine.

Research on this is sparse but if interested...
⭐ See this short paper that was presented at a 2017 convention in Europe


New onset of floaters can carry a 5% risk of retinal holes, retinal tears or retinal detachment. Always seek immediate care with your local eye doctor when experiencing sudden changes to your vision or eyesight. More info on retinal detachments

Typical Eye Floaters Treatment Options
- Time (usually eye floaters in your vision improve in 1-6 months)
- Laser Vitreolysis laser floater treatment- see video here
- Vitrectomy

A better understanding of the causes of eye floaters and their symptoms can help in making an informed decision, as to how to properly address the issue.

EYE FLOATERS, Causes, Signs and Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment.

Eye floaters are deposits or tiny clumps of gel inside the vitreous – the material that fills the posterior part of the eye, which cast shadows on the retina when light enters the eye.
• Eye floaters may appear as dark or gray specks, spots, threads, or cobwebs that drift aimlessly and slowly before the observer’s eye and may seem to dart away when looked at directly.
• Floaters can become apparent when gazing or look at something plain and bright such as white paper, blank wall or a blue sky.
• They usually don’t affect vision, though large floaters may appear to cast a slight shadow over the vision, this happens only in the certain type of light.
• They can be distracting and annoying at first, but they eventually tend to settle at the bottom of the eye, becoming less bothersome.
• Eye floaters are not serious and are usually common between the ages of 50 -75.
• It is not only elderly people who are troubled by floaters, they can also be a problem for younger people especially those who are myopic.

This treatment analysis video shows a large cloudy floater that does just what your doctor said it would: it drops down out of the way. This is a good outcome, right? Well, not really. This large floater will drop out of the way, but with even minor eye movements or head movements it moves up and will intermittently block or significantly distort this floater-sufferers vision especially in brighter ambient light where their pupil will naturally get smaller. The problem with this particular situation is that when the floater moves up it basically slides along and is almost touching the natural crystalline lens inside the eye. This is a location much too close to the lens to safely treat with the laser for the risk of causing a cataract during treatment. This is a particularly frustrating situation as the patient is highly motivated to do something and I, the floater doctor, have to make good and safe decisions.

This is the first described use of a mirror or to redirect the laser energy out into the far periphery, in this case the lower portion of the vitreous which is out of direct targeting reach, but with the mirror I can get energy on the floater and start breaking it up. This is a highly advanced technique and the results of treating thousands of patients environment laser multiple, multiple millions of times. There is no teaching, training, or certification for the use of the laser entreating eye floaters. My usual caveat applies which is to choose your floater treatment Dr. carefully. Just because he or she bought a YAG laser means absolutely nothing as to their skill level andcompetence especially with treating the difficult ones. The truth is, I rarely get the simple or easy ones and the majority of the treatments I do are relatively complex.

The Floater Doctor, James H. Johnson M.D. is Medical Director of the only medical practice in the world specializing in, and exclusively treating bothersome spots, shadows, and clouds that affect your vision. Although common, especially changes such as posterior vitreous detachment (PVDs) as we age, these vitreous eye floaters are rarely offered treatment by your local and well qualified eye care providers, even at top specialty institutions. Dr. Johnson uses a specialized FDA-approved YAG laser to vaporize and destroy the proteins in the vitreous that are responsible for your spots, shadows, and moving blurred areas in your vision. He has been doing so since 2007 making him one of, if not the most experienced in this very specialty niche area in ophthalmology, a pioneer in this field.
