When Looking In The Eye Like There Is A Thread Or Jelly?
Good evening, thanks for the question
The symptoms that you are experiencing may be a condition called floaters. Floaters have symptoms such as lines or dark spots that move in the field of view. Symptoms that appear can also be like transparent colored lines like glass. Complaints will be more clearly felt if under the sun.
Floters are caused by the presence of particles or debris in the vitreous body structure which is located behind the lens and is transparent, so that its clarity is reduced. In rare cases, especially in elderly patients, floaters are associated with abnormalities such as vitreous bleeding, retinal detachment, eye trauma, or retinal disorders due to diabetes.
If the complaint is mild and does not cause disturbances to daily activities it generally only needs to be observed and not recommended to do more aggressive treatment given the greater risk. However, if the symptoms are progressive and interfere with the quality of life of the patient, the doctor may recommend surgery for vitrectomy, which is an action to remove the vitreous body and be replaced with a kind of normal saline fluid or by laser vitreolysis method.
Both of these actions have their own risks, so you need to conduct further consultations with an ophthalmologist to find out whether in your condition it is necessary to carry out the therapy or just a conservative method.
That's all, hope you can help
