Eye Floaters

I briefly mentioned in my previous blog post regarding the eye floaters of my mom. Eye floaters are specks in front of our eyes. Almost everyone experiences, at some point in time, occasional floaters while staring an object against a light background. The floaters can also be seen when we are feeling light-headed.

Generally, eye floaters are innocuous. Thus, there is nothing to be worried of when they appear. However, when these floaters become visible in every background and are accompanied by loss of vision, it could be an early symptom of retinal detachment, according to eye specialists. Therefore, visiting an ophthalmologist is recommended.

As for my mom’s eye floaters, her ophthalmologist considered them as harmless.
