The shape of the floaters varies from black spots to long bands that block / hover in your field of vision. This condition can appear when looking at light or white lights for some time.
The cause of the condition of the floaters is the presence of injury to the eye, frequent exposure to the sun for a long time, complications from diseases such as diabetes, sores on the eye lining, farsightedness, infection of the eye, tearing of the retina. Floaters can also occur due to age, usually floaters appear in the elderly population.
