Eye Floaters

Anthony L. Aker, O.D.Have you ever seen something in your line of vision that is bothersome or annoying? Chances are that you are seeing a Floater. Floaters are small clumps of gel that form in the vitreous which is the clear jelly filled cavity inside the eye. Floaters take many forms, such as a spiderweb type appearance, dots, lines or squiggles. They are most often seen on light colored walls, while reading or looking into the sky.
