Understanding Floaters

Floaters are a common eye condition where the person sees spots in their path of vision. They can vary in severity. That's why our team at Eyes on Hayden in Scottsdale can help you understand the cause and how serious your eye floaters are. Having a skilled and knowledgeable optometrist on hand to provide guidance and relief from floaters is essential. Don't wait to see a doctor. Get the treatment you need now to control floaters before they worsen.

What Is Floar? 

Floaters usually appear as black or gray-colored spots and seem to move as the person looks around. Sometimes they even look like spiderwebs. Most people develop them as a result of aging. However, the cause of floaters is caused by the vitreous fluid inside the eye clumping together. This process casts a shadow in the retina, and floater appears in the person's line of vision. 

Do I Need Eye Care for My Floaters?

While this is usually a common condition that doesn't require immediate treatment, it can also be serious. If the number of floaters increases dramatically, or you notice any changes in your vision, you need to contact our optometry team immediately. An instance where your floater may be serious is if you see a flash of light or have trouble with your peripheral vision. Some common occurrences of floaters include:  

  • Spots that move with your vision
  • Strings or specks that seem to float
  • Seeing spots against a background
  • Shapes and strings that settle below the line of vision

While these occurrences are usually not serious, it's important to mention them to our optometrists during your next exam. Request an appointment if the activity suddenly increases or you lose some of your vision.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • We use Anderson Optometry for all of our family’s vision needs. Recently, we had to have our youngest fitted for new glasses and he made the experience fun for her and informative for us. We know Dr. Anderson will always take good care of our family’s eye care and that’s why we wouldn’t go to anywhere else.

  • Dr. Anderson and his staff are so patient and friendly. Dr. Anderson prescribed me glasses and I had the toughest time picking out frames. They didn’t rush, but instead made helpful suggestions and now I have an awesome pair of frames, not to mention the fact that I can see ten times better than before. You guys are the best!
