Whenever I look up at a clear blue
sky I, always see these little “floaty” things swimming around in my field of
vision. But, whenever I tried to “look” at them, they disappear, only to
reappear whenever I blink. While your eye color might say something about your
personality, one thing is for sure, these little “floaters” love to hang out.
I was always a bit nervous about what
these things were. I thought about going to the optometrist about it, but they
never seemed to bother me, so why worry?
Luckily, it turns out that “floaters”
are about as harmless as they look. It turns out that these “flying flies,” as
the ancient Romans used to call them, are not bugs at all, nor are they
external objects. It seems that these little things are just very tiny little
objects that are inside of your eyes. These tiny objects end up casting shadows
onto your retina, which is what you’re seeing!
These little squeakies are either
pieces of tissue, red blood cells, or clumps of protein. Check out the video
below if you’re interested in learning more about these things that nearly all
of us have been looking at since we were kids playing outside every summer.
One thing to be aware of though:
Sometimes, if you see larger “floaters” like they show at the 3:23 mark of the
video, it might be a symptom of a more serious condition. Make sure to watch
this video just to make sure your eyes are working perfectly!
