Will my eye floaters go away?

Will my eye floaters go away?

Not likely: Eye floaters r little pieces of solidified fluid that the eye globe is filled with (vitreous fluid). When they form, they float around and you will only be aware of them when they float in front of that part of the retina (optic nerve) that is the focus of light that allows us to see. They generally don't go away, and once u know what they are, may not be too bothersome. C eye doc annually. ...Read more

Are eye floaters serious problems, and do they go away on there own.

Vitreous floaters: Floaters are generally age specific changes in the eye's viscous fluids in the compartment behind the iris. Occasionally floaters arise from diseases or trauma that may require medical and or surgical treatment. Therefore, depending on the problem, a surgical treatment to resolve the problem often eliminates the floaters. Otherwise, the floaters will remain without unnecessary evacuation. ...Read more

Noticing eye floaters after sinus mucocele surgery. Is there a connection? Will it go away with time?

Noticing eye floaters after sinus mucocele surgery. Is there a connection? Will it go away with time?

Not related: You most probably have a vitreous floater. The clear gel that fills eyeball is normally attached to all parts of the inside of the eye. As we get older it can become more liquid (watery) and detaches from the back of the retina causing your "dirt" floater. This can also reult in a retinal tear or detachment you should see your eye doctor to check the retina for this or hemorrhage (blood). ...Read more

I am 18 years old and I am suffering from eye floaters?Is there any treatment ?Will they go away?And why have they formed some early in my life?

Maybe: As a retinal specialist, i see lots of people bothered by "floaters." the cause varies and so does the natural history. In many young people, i've determined that many do not get relief after a months to years. Often we talk about operating to remove the floaters. One reason the floaters usually don't "move" is the vitreous is much less degenerated/less like water compared to older individuals. ...Read more

I have had eye floaters for a few years now. Haven't seen a dr because I thought it was due to pregnancy but they aren't going away. Will they go away?

Possible problem: Floaters are frequently benign and come and go but can represent an eye problem such as a problem with the retina which is necessary for good vision. With your age and history you give, your floaters are probably benign. Being as you have not seen an eye doctor you should make a point of seeing one and having your eyes properly checked. It is not wise in medicine to make assumptions about anything ...Read more

Floaters R not from: glasses. Also, it can disappear even faster than 6 months, as soon as they settle to below your visual axis (vision area). Everyone gets or will get floaters during their lifetime. The best is when your brain starts cancelling them out, and forgetting that they're such a nuisance. ...Read more
