Help Heal Floaters Naturally

Floaters are small spots in your field of vision that cast shadows over the retina and are translated to the brain as dots, lines or cobwebs. They are seen most often in certain kinds of light and against certain background. They are caused by clumps of vitreous gel moving through the eye. These clumps dart away when you try to focus on them. In most cases, though they may be bothersome, they are also benign and will become less noticeable as your brain learns to ignore them. Nearsighted and elderly folks are most like to suffer from floaters!
