Floaters are black spots that look like “flies” and appear to move in our visual field, especially under bright lights or in front of a white background. These floaters are small concentrations inside the vitreous humor, a gel found inside the eye that keeps the eyeball in its spherical shape. As those concentrations move inside the vitreous humor, they cast a shadow on the retina, under bright conditions, and thus appear as black spots.

Floaters are usually caused by a posterior vitreous detachment. Since those same symptoms can hide other more serious conditions, like retinal detachment or tears, it is advisable to visit our ophthalmologist urgently for early diagnosis and possible treatment.
