Floaters are little “cobwebs” or specks that float about in your field of vision. They move as your eyes move and seem to dart away when you try to look at them directly. They do not follow your eye movements precisely, and usually drift when your eyes stop moving.
Floaters occur when the vitreous slowly shrinks and becomes somewhat stringy, and the strands can cast tiny shadows on the retina. These are floaters. However, there are other, more serious causes of floaters, including infection, inflammation (uveitis), hemorrhaging, retinal tears, and injury to the eye.
On rare occasions, floaters can be so dense and numerous that they significantly affect vision. In these cases, a vitrectomy, a surgical procedure that removes floaters from the vitreous, may be needed. A vitrectomy removes the vitreous gel, along with its floating debris, from the eye. The vitreous is replaced with a salt solution. Because the vitreous is mostly water, you will not notice any change between the salt solution and the original vitreous.
This operation carries significant risks to sight because of possible complications, which include retinal detachment, retinal tears, and cataract. Most eye surgeons are reluctant to recommend this surgery unless the floaters seriously interfere with vision.
So how to get rid of eye floaters by natural remedies is highly recommended. For example, some restore vision herbal tea, which includes cassia seeds, lotus leaves, gardenia and so on, they are full of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory nutrients, and calm ascendant liver Yang and brighten the eyes, they also moisten the intestines, lower both blood pressure and serum cholesterol, which treat the root cause of eye floaters.
