The human body has many flaws and doesn’t always functioning normally. One of most common issues is a floater in the eye. Floaters are small blobs, lines or other shapes that appear in your field of vision. Although you can see right through them, the shapes can move with your eye so that it is impossible to focus on them. Eye floaters are a harmless natural phenomenon most people will experience.
Your eyes are filled with a gel-like substance where eye floaters are located. These floaters are tiny parts of your body that have managed to make it into the gel. They could be anything from pieces of disconnected tissue, blobs of proteins or even red blood cells. The reason they move is the gel in your eyes shifts as you change your gaze, which is why you cannot ever look directly at the floaters. The floaters because they are casting a shadow against the retinas in the back of your eyes.
The majority of eye floaters are completely harmless. There is no way to prevent them or predict when they will show up. If a floater becomes too large and actually starts to obstruct your vision, however, it could be an indication of a serious problem that requires immediate medical attention.
