Floaters: Videos Show You what these Are

Patients ask me all the time about "floaters" in their vision. These videos show very nicely that floaters are located towards the back of the eye and "float" within the vitreous. Most floaters are notice when looking against a bright blue sky or a lightly colored wall. They appear like "Muscae volitantes" (Latin for flying flies). Most floaters are nothing more than a nuisance, but this is not always the case. If you have floaters, especially if you see many all of a sudden see an eye doctor immediately! DM
