Floaters can also be caused by a detached retina. If you have an increase in the number of floaters see an opthalmalogist right away.
: I am 23 years old. I have been seeing floaters since early in my teens.
: From what I have read, floaters are usually caused by the loosening of the gel object
: in the eye(vitreous object). When the gel becomes loose or more liquid cells and other tiny things
: inside the eye starts to move around and becomes noticeable to the eye as floaters.
: Is there anyway that can help the gel to regain its ardness (as in an eye that has no floaters)? I was wondering if the gel can be hardened the cells (and other tiny things) in the eye will stop moving so there'll be no more floaters.
: Is there research currently taking place to find out ways the eye (vitreous) gel can be hardened?
: Anyone know the answer to my questions? Thanks. Adam
