EYE-FLOATERS-1200x662.jpg?strip=all&lossy=1&ssl=1

Eye floaters are spots in your vision. They may look to you like black or gray specks, strings, or cobwebs. They may drift about when you move your eyes. Floaters appear to dart away when you try to look at them directly. Most floaters are caused by age-related changes that occur as the jelly-like substance (vitreous humor) inside your eye, liquifies and contracts. Scattered clumps of collagen fibers form within the vitreous and can cast tiny shadows on your retina. The shadows you see are called floaters.

Dry eyes, a common and often frustrating condition that can make everyday activities like reading, working at a computer, or simply enjoying the outdoors, a painful and irritating experience. It's estimated to affect over 30 million Americans, and the number is increasing with our growing dependence on digital screens and exposure to dry environments. Dry eyes can occur when the eyes are unable to produce an adequate quantity of tears or when the tears evaporate too quickly.
