What Causes Floaters To Develop At A Young Age?
Dark strands of spider web like lines float within the eye as the gel like vitreous material breaks apart into
smaller pieces in the back of the eye. A reduction of size and density occurs over time in the vitreous gel that
fills up the rear portion of your eyeballs.
Seeing tiny black bugs that look like jellyfish with tentacles inside your eyes is what can
happen after the vitreous pulls into the center of your eye into tinier clumps. Dark and vivid black floaters that

Black floaters that splash in your eyes like seaweed is an observation that some patients have replied with when
asked what their floaters look like.
