What are eye floaters?
Floaters are little “cobwebs” or specks that float about in your field of vision. They are small, dark, shadowy shapes that can look like spots, thread-like strands, or squiggly lines. They move as your eyes move and seem to dart away when you try to look at them directly. They do not follow your eye movements precisely, and usually drift when your eyes stop moving.
What are the risk factors?
- Age over 50 years old
- Eye trauma
- Eye inflammation
- Complications from cataract surgery
- Retina damage due to diabetes complication
Leading a healthy lifestyle is also essential
Do not look at computer screen or phone screen for too long. This can cause eyestrain, blurred vision and dry eyes.
Take a break and exercise your eyes by looking at far distance.
Supplementation of quality antioxidants can also protect the eyes.
Our clinical team recommends:
- Offer you the comprehensive eye support
- Pure omega-3 essential fatty acids protect the nerves and cells of our eyes
Be proactive in protecting your eyes to prevent floaters from happening.
