Floaters Aren't Usually a Sign of Anything Serious, BUT...

they can be in some situations, such as: 1) Posterior uveitis: an inflammation in the urea, the middle layer of the eye beneath the sclera, the white part of your eye. 2) Bleeding in the eye. 3) Floaters that appear after eye surgery or an injury to the eye. 4) Torn retina or retina detachment.  The retina is the tissue at the back of the eye that converts the images your eye sees into signals for the brain, which will interpret the images for you.  If floaters are passing through your line of vision more frequently, are getting larger, have appeared all of a sudden or seem to be multiplying, speak to your eye doctor as soon as possible.  Also, seek medical attention if you begin to experience flashes of light, start having eye pain, or lose some of your sight as these can be signs of a serious medical condition.
