Eye Floaters – A Homeopathic Treatment for Black Spots Before Eyes

Eye floaters are something everyone is familiar with – they are little black spots in the vision that move or float when a person moves their eyes. When you try to focus on the spots, they seem to move quickly out of the visual field. The medical term for eye floaters is muscae volitantes. Eye floaters are mostly harmless and do not affect the vision significantly, but it is recommended to get the eyes examined by an ophthalmologist on a regular basis if eye floaters are a frequent occurrence. The top homeopathic remedies to treat eye floaters are Phosphorous, Natrum Mur, and Argentum Nitricum.

Causes of Eye Floaters

In a majority of cases, eye floaters arise due to age-related changes that appear in vitreous inside the eyes. Vitreous humor is a liquid that occupies back two third of the eyes. Vitreous humor is jelly-like, clear and transparent matter. It consists majorly of water with a minor content of collagen, salt, and sugar. In aged people, the vitreous begins to liquefy, and the collagen fibers clump together. These strands cast a shadow on the retinal surface that a person perceives as eye floaters. Other causes behind eye floaters include hemorrhage in the vitreous, posterior uveitis and tearing of retina. Tearing of retina may lead to the retinal detachment that needs prompt treatment to prevent permanent vision loss. Some factors including diabetes mellitus, injury to the eye and nearsightedness raise the risk of eye floaters. Eye floaters may also be a part of aura in cases of migraine.
A person may see the floaters as black/gray dots, cobwebs, cloud-like spots, curved lines, rings, fine strands/strings. A person may see a single floater or the number may be up to hundreds varying from case to case. Floaters appear more prominent when a person looks on light colored backgrounds like the sky or a white wall. However, in the event of a sudden increase in eye floaters (especially if a person see flashes of light or there is a loss of vision), an eye specialist should be consulted on an emergency basis as it may be a signal of some critical condition like retinal detachment.
