What causes “floaters” in my field of vision?

Floaters happen for a variety of reasons and present as a black or refracted curvy line which floats across your field of vision. It is caused by the buildup of proteins in the liquid of the lens. They look like black or grey dots, cobwebs, or strings, and drift away as fast as they drift in to focus. Most are caused by the natural aging process. If you notice a sudden change in the number and frequency of these floaters you should contact your eye care professional immediately.


  • Age-related changes – as we ae the vitreous (liquid) that fills our eyeballs begins to shrink and sag, clumps and turns stringy the debris interferes with the light passing through the pupil and it casts shadows on the retina.
  • Inflammation in the back of the orbitals – posterior uveitis is caused by inflammation within the layers towards the back of the orbital, it releases inflammatory agents into the vitreous. It is caused by infection or other systemic inflammatory diseases.
  • Surgeries and medications – Medications injected into the vitreous can cause air bubbles to form and shadows to be seen until the bubbles are absorbed.
  • Bleeding – bleeding into the center liquid of the orbital which can be caused by hypertension, diabetes, injury, and clogged blood vessels.
  • Torn Retina – Retina tears can happen when the shrinking and sagging of the vitreous begin to pull at the retina if left untreated fluid can build up behind the retina and cause it to detach completely, this can cause permeant loss of sight.
