Eye Floaters are black or grey spots in your vision. They resemble cobwebs or strings that drift about when you move your eyes and appear to move away when you try to focus on them. Eye floaters are usually caused due to ageing. Symptoms are:
• Spots in your vision that appear as dark specks of transparent strings
• Spots that move as you move your eyes
• Spots that are noticeable when you look at a plain or bright surface
• Spots that eventually settle down and drift out of your line of vision
HOW IS EYE FLOATERS DIAGNOSED?
The ophthalmologist will check the patient's vision, look at the front of the eyes with a slit lamp, and then place drops in the eyes to dilate the pupils. After the pupils are dilated, the retina and vitreous will be examined with bright lights from an ophthalmoscope mounted on the head of the doctor.

While Eye Floaters can be cured at home, but in the event of floaters caused by retinal diseases, laser surgery is recommended.
