Should you be worried about seeing floating spots?


The December 2017 edition of Medibank’s be. magazine featured an article by Dr Simon Chen on eye floaters. In the article, he explains what causes eye floaters, whether you should get them checked by an eye specialist and how they can be treated.

Below is an excerpt from the article:

Eye floaters are tiny spots or threads in your vision. As you look around, they follow your eye movements and drift through your field of vision, often with a slight delay. Floaters are particularly obvious when looking at a clear sky or a white wall. If you try to focus your vision on them, they may seem to move or float about.
