Treatment For Floaters In The Left Eye?
actually I’ve been exposed to floaters since I was small but the size is still small and not visible, and the floater became severe and big in the form of worms, nets, and transparent round
Hello, Thanks for the question.
Floaters are black shadows of various shapes that float in the field of vision. Visible floaters may be threadlike, loops, specks, or net-like. A person will see floaters more clearly if they see a bright light. Floaters can move and float in the visual field according to eye movements.
At the back of the eye lens, there is a structure that has a gel-like consistency, which contains proteins and collagen. This structure is called the vitreous. As we age, the protein and collagen contained in the vitreous will degenerate or in other words will clump and gather. These collected lumps will be captured by the retina of the eye as floaters. In addition to age, floaters can also be caused by refractive errors of the eye (myopia), inflammation or infection of the vitreous, bleeding in the vitreous, retinal tears, retinal detachment.
If you experience complaints of floaters that get worse, you should immediately consult an ophthalmologist. The doctor will need to find out more information about your complaint and perform a series of examinations on your eyes. After finding the cause, the doctor will determine the next treatment.
In the meantime, take care of your eye health by avoiding reading or looking at things too closely. Rest tired eyes if you work long hours at the computer. Make sure the lighting in the room is bright enough when reading.
Hope this information is useful.
