What are floaters?

– There is a gel that takes up most of the space inside the eye called the Vitreous

– The little dots or squiggly lines we see when looking at something bright (ex. a white wall) are areas of the vitreous that are slightly thicker thus casting shadows on the retina

– Mostly these are nothing to worry about

When are floaters significant?

– Floaters can be a sign of Vitreous Detachment or, more significantly, Retinal Detachment

– If you ever notice lots of new small floaters or a new large floater, this is something to be concerned about
