Floaters in eyes

About the author:

What seem like small specks moving in your field of vision are actually retinal shadows of tiny clumps of cells inside the vitreous (clear jelly-like fluid) filling inside your eye

What seem like small specks moving in your field of vision are actually retinal shadows of tiny clumps of cells inside the vitreous (clear jelly-like fluid) filling inside your eye. One man is after a cure, but his optician is less than forthcoming. Any suggestions? This problem is very common with age. Avoid bright light or staring at white or pale walls, televisions, and computer screens until the condition is resolved. This condition is well understood by acupuncturists and Chinese herbalists, and TCM treatments have cleared up the problem for several readers. If you're going the homeopathic route, one option is to take Euphrasia and possibly ledum at a combination of 200c/6c so the body can choose the right potency in between. Another reader found that the tissue/cell salt KALI PHOS (Potassium Phosphate) cleared her symptoms. As ever, plenty of water and a reasonable diet will help - supplement with vitamins C and E plus bioflavenoids and zinc. Good foods for eye health include blueberries (or bilberry capsules), spinach (which contains lutein) and carrots (with beta-carotene). Eyebright is a helpful herb, and Pycnogenol/grape seed extract aids in strengthening blood vessels. If the floaters are trauma-related, they will subside with patience and tolerance (i.e. don't keep looking to see if they are still there)!
