What are these floaters in my eyes? Are they dangerous? How do I get rid of them?
Floaters most often are caused by age related changes to the vitreous gel that fills the eye. These are not dangerous. Some doctors are offering laser to break up these floaters. However, this treatment is not approved by the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Fortunately, most people learn to tune out these floaters due to a process called neuroadaptation. Although floaters are most often not a cause of concern, they sometimes can be caused by bleeding or inflammation in the eyes. These floaters are more concerning and require immediate evaluation by your ophthalmologist.
