Hello. Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Floaters are shadows of objects of various sizes, shaped like tiny dots to larger shapes like long ropes, which appear to hover on vision, especially when looking at light or brightly colored objects.
In general, floaters are caused by the remnants of stools that pool in the humorous vitreous in the eye (fluid in the front of the retina). This is usually influenced by age. However, floaters can also be caused by eye inflammation, retinal tears, infections, accidents that injure the eye, or farsightedness.
Floaters, which are remnants of feces, are reminiscent of a small amount of vitreous and non-intrusive fluid which is generally harmless. But if it is caused by other causes such as retinal tears, infection, eye trauma, then this must be treated immediately.
For that reason, considering that many of the floaters that you experience are disturbing your eyesight and cause discomfort, you should consult an ophthalmologist to be examined and to know the cause of the floater. Having known the cause, of course the doctor will carry out management according to the underlying cause.
As for what you should do to maintain eye health are:
Avoid rubbing your eyes Wash your hands before touching eyes Use sunglasses when the eyes look in the sun Avoid the habit of reading in a dark place, or reading too closely. That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
