What are floaters?

Floaters in the eyes are a common thing and many people notice them from childhood, but what should you do if they change? 

They are often formed from deposits in the “jelly” that fills the eye. As these move around you can see the shadows of them on the back of the eye. These change with time naturally but can occasionally be signs of more serious conditions that must be checked immediately.

Make sure you talk to your opticians if you ever notice new floaters in your vision.
