These are caussed by the gel in your eye hardening. Essentially the hardened gel blocks light coming in which causes shadows to appear. There is no harm to them. Just something that happens as we age.
@The Silly Band, no one has time for education
@The Silly Band, I had always assumed they were bacteria on my eye
@The Silly Band, i have seen these since I was little
@rnf73, i used to think i could see germs floating
@rnf73, actually they're too small for the human eye to see, even touching your eye, but you do see the shadow it makes.
@Duncan5769, see I'd always heard the opposite. That these were the only microscopic thing the naked human eye could see
@The Silly Band, oh I thought they where white blood cells
@The Silly Band, so, not from masturbating?
@TheWhiteWolf, only techincally, just their shadows
@The Silly Band, I was told by an eye doctor that they were old rods that had broken off and were just floating around. Granted this was at least 30 years ago...
Did you know we have a blind spot. Hold your arm all the way out and thumb up. Start from the centre then move your arm to the left or right slowly while keeping your eyes straight. Your thumb should disappear in the blind spot.
I’ve noticed these since I was little and always assumed they were serial numbers on my eye and that I was a cyborg.
Not gonna lie, kinda disappointed.
There's a video on Youtube about this.
Scishow: Those maddening eyeball floaters
You get them out first, dhu
I always see that, but moving
There's a way to cure them if they are really bad. You can drain all the clear jelly from your eye and replace it with an artificial substance that should be eye floater free.
Ask your ophthalmologist if a vitreous humor replacement is right for you!
Family guy did it first
