“Dots” or “eye floaters”, that are floating in front of the eye when we look up on the blue sky, or on some white surface, like the wall, this can be normal in most of the cases. But also there can be one case when it can indicate a lot of other serious illness, and you have to right away visit the doctor!
What we see in this cases are actually some changes that can be found inside our eye, and not in front of us.The front two thirds of the eyeballs are filled with a gelatinous substance that is also called vitreous.
If you try to look them and concentrate on them, these floating particles move towards the periphery of the eye.
It is about changing in the vitreous which is a appearance of fine particles that are mostly composed of collagen fibers.
These particles floating in the vitreous, blocking the light coming through the eyes and create a shadow on the retina and the back of the eye. It is actually the shadowsthat you see.
Is there reason to panic?
There is reason to panic if you suddenly see such floating particles and if they are accompanied by flashes of light or momentary loss of vision. Then you should immediatelyvisit an ophthalmologist.
In fact, such occurrences can indicate inflammation, bleeding, cut or separation of the retina, which may be repaired if you act in time.
Therefore see a doctor as soon as possible because if you postpone it can come to permanent blindness. On the other hand, the occasional “eye floaters” are not such a big concern.
