The Vitreous Gel And Black Spots In Front Of The
There are no bugs "swimming in your eyes", you are just seeing the hairy clumps or dark strands of vitreous gel
breaking down and shifting around. With time, the vitreous gel that fills the rear of our eyes changes from being
like jello to a water like material. The smallest remains of particles moving in the vitreous jelly cause the dark
hair strands to move about in your vision.
Dark squiggles in front of your eyes with flies in your vision are more visible against a white piece of paper.
Shadows are then made on your retina from the globs of material floating around within the vitreous gel.
Looking like small strings that move across your vision, eye floaties have a remarkable ability to both
frustrate and fascinate people who suffer with them.
