    Eye floaters are small moving spots that appear in your field of vision. They are very noticeable when you look at something bright, such as white paper or a blue sky. Eye floaters are most commonly due to retinal detachment, retinal tear and bleeding within the eye. Symptoms are black or gray dots, squiggly lines, threadlike strands, cobwebs and ring shape. Drinking lots of water can help to clear your body of toxins as well as to help you to produce tears that will prevent dry eye and redness. Actually, drinking too much water has a little possible to reduce eye floaters. Looking up and down is usually more effective than looking from side to side to help with eye floaters. A surgical procedure called a vitrectomy is usually taken when eye floaters affect your vision.

    Eye floaters are can be understand deposits in the vitreous jelly of the eye. To treat it, you shall know what causes it. As far as i know, people may get such eye floaters from eye diseases, eye injury and diabetic retinopathy etc. Besides, some eye disorder can also lead to eye floaters such as retinal detachment, retinal tear, vitreous hemorrhages and well as eye tumors. So, from these points, drinking water may not cure eye floaters. But drinking more water can help you avoid of dry eyes to some extend.

    Eye floaters are common in people's eyes. I have eye floaters in my eyes too. There are hard to notice if I'm not try too. Anyway, there are some methods which can help to reduce the eye floaters. First of all, don't be stressed, more stress means more floaters, so be relaxed. Second, don't be bothered by those floaters, normally, they don't affect your vision; find ways to live with them. It's true that drinking lots of water can reduce the eye floaters, because water can help to eliminate toxins which are the cause of floaters. Besides drinking water, you can use some MSM drops and eat foods high in antioxidants. As I said before, the most important thing is to relax. Wish you a good luck!

    Well, yes, in my opinion, drinking more water can be good for eye floaters. First, you need to know how eye floaters occur. Generally speaking, it is very common for many people to have eye floaters, and they will not do harm to our body. So there is no need for us to worry about it. But on the other hand, if you have too much eye floaters in your eyes, it can be a sign that your eyes may suffer some problems. And also, it can be ugly. By drinking more, it can be good for eye floaters, for eye floaters occur because of the dirty objects in your eyes. In that way, it will just moisten your eyes, letting dirty thing get out of eyes. Anyway, just drink more water, and have more fruits.
