Eye floaters are spots in your vision. They may look to you like black or gray specks, strings, or cobwebs that drift about when you move your eyes and appear to dart away when you try to look at them directly. Most eye floaters are caused by age-related changes that occur as the jelly-like substance (vitreous) inside your eyes becomes more liquid.
Direction of Use: 2 sachets of EnerFlex OPTRAZAN daily. Severity in eye floaters usually can be reduced after 4 - 8 weeks of product usage.
Eye floaters can be caused by:
- Aging eye - As you age, the vitreous, or jelly-like substance filling your eyeballs , shrinks and sags, it clumps and gets stringy. This debris blocks some of the light passing through the eye, casting tiny shadows on your retina that are seen as floaters.
- Inflammation in the back of the eye - Posterior uveitis may be caused by infection, inflammatory diseases or other causes.
- Bleeding in the eye - Bleeding into the vitreous can have many causes, including diabetes, hypertension, blocked blood vessels and injury. Blood cells are seen as floaters.
- Torn retina- Retinal tears can occur when a sagging vitreous tugs on the retina with enough force to tear it. Without treatment, a retinal tear may lead to retinal detachment
- Eye surgeries and eye medications - Certain medications that are injected into the vitreous can cause air bubbles to form. These bubbles are seen as shadows until your eye absorbs them. Certain vitreoretinal surgeries add silicone oil bubbles into the vitreous that can also be seen as floaters.
