Seeing floaters, spider webs
Seeing floaters & spider webs in your vision can be a concerning sign that can indicate potential retinal issues, especially if accompanied by flashing lights. Floaters show up in the eys as the jelly-like vitreous humour starts to naturally degenerate. Individual floaters are usually not vision threatening and do not require any treatment. However, in some cases, floaters and spider-webs are caused due to retinal tears or breaks which require urgent treatment to prevent loss of vision. Patients with new floaters or spider-webs in their vision should visit their optometrist right away.
