Do you sometimes see squiggly lines or fuzzy particles in one eye or the other? If so, you may have tried to reach out and pull the fuzz from your eyelash just to discover that the fuzzy particle is not hanging from your eyelash. You may have even wiped your eyes to remove the particles from your sight, but without success. You probably realized that the particle was actually in your vision, not outside your vision. Once you determined this, you may have even covered one eye and look through the other just to detect which eye is seeing the fuzzy particle or squiggly line. Chances are that these fuzzy particles and squiggly lines disappeared and seemed to only reappear when looking at a solid-colored background.
According to EyeDoctorGuide.com, this condition is called Eye Floaters, and this condition is not necessarily harmful, but you do want to check with your eye doctor to be safe. Your doctor needs to make sure that you don’t suffer from some type of eye injury or other serious eye condition, so do consult your eye doctor if you suffer from Eye Floaters. According to EyeDoctorGuide.com, Eye Floaters are often harmless, but some do need to be medically treated. Only a doctor can tell for sure, though. EyeDoctorGuide.com tells that laser treatment can be an effective way to treat Eye Floaters. Other treatments do exist, according to EyeDoctorGuide.com, but laser treatment seems to be the one that doctors favor because it seems to be a “less risky procedure.”
It seems that doctors reserve treatment, though, only for the more serious cases due to the medical risks involved. Typically, EyeDoctorGuide.com suggests that a person who suffers from Eye Floaters learn “to live with” the condition due to the possible complications and risks of surgery to correct Eye Floaters. Still, though, it serves as a wise move to check with your eye doctor if you do suffer from Eye Floaters to rule out a serious condition. According to EyeDoctorGuide.com, if you suffer from “a series of flashes” in your vision, or if you have a “sudden appearance of many small floaters moving across the field of vision,” you should get to an eye doctor, immediately because this could be signs of a serious medical condition, such as a detached retina. Make sure that you act in a proactive manner when it comes to your vision. Yes, it can be costly to visit an eye doctor, but your eyesight is worth it, so don’t take the risk.
