July 29, 2021

From the Medical News Today website

Floaters are dark shapes that appear in a person’s line of vision. Floaters may appear as spots, threads, uneven lines, or look like cobwebs. 

Floaters are usually harmless, and most people may notice floaters that come and go. 

Dry eyes are also common, and can cause irritation, redness, and may affect vision. Dry eyes can happen if the eyes do not produce enough, or retain enough, tears. People may be able to treat dry eyes with artificial tears.

In this article, we look in further detail at causes of dry eyes and floaters, symptoms, treatment, and when to see a doctor.
