Floaters

Floaters


Floaters are small pieces of debris that ‘float’ in the vitreous humour of the eye (posterior chamber).

What do floaters look like?

Floaters appear in the front of the eye, and can occur in a number of different shapes and sizes.  For example, they may appear as tiny black dots, small shadowy dots, larger ‘cloud-like’ spots, or long, narrow strands.

Floaters cast shadows onto the retina and it is the shadows that someone who has floaters is able to see.  Floaters most commonly develop as your eyes get older, as part of the natural ageing process.

Did you know

Floaters are harmless and will not usually interfere with your vision.  Sometimes you may have floaters without noticing them.  This is because your brain constantly adapts to changes in your vision, and learns to ignore floaters so that they do not affect your vision.
