Is This Eye Floater Normal? #shorts

Are Eye Floaters normal? Eye floaters commonly develop as we age and are usually not considered sight threatening. Eye floater symptoms may include moving spots in your vision and flashes, blurred vision or even complete vision loss in the event of a retinal detachment. Thankfully, eye floaters often improve on their own, otherwise floaters may be treated with a few surgical procedures. Learn about eye floater treatment here
