Natural Remedies for Eye Floaters
Eye Floaters are bits of debris in the vitreous which is the clear material that fills the eyeball, they can appear as specks, strands, cobwebs or rings that become more apparent when the eye is moved, they can occur at any age, but are generally more common as we age and the vitreous thickens or shrinks.
In many cases, eye floaters will come and go with no treatment and are not generally cause for concern, however, an eye exam should rule out any serious underlying condition, especially true if floaters are accompanied by flashes of light or suddenly increase. Floaters can also occur prompted by diabetes and eye surgery or injuries. They tend to be more common in people who are near sighted and those with food allergies and / or Candida
