    If you find that you have eye floaters in your eyes, you'd better go to see the doctor because it is difficult to judge its result. After having the check, you can know whether it belongs to the physiological or the pathological symptom. Sometimes the allergic physique may make you have eye floaters because of some inadequate habit of using eyes. But the phenomenon of cataract and glaucoma also cover this symptom. Thus, you'd better go to the hospital and have a check.

    First of all, eye floater is a common condition to see in daily life that almost every person could have a few eye floaters under different situations. And it's more frequently for over 50 years old people to have it. When you look at white wall or other light background, you would feel small black or grey spots in the front of your eye vision. It's an obvious sign of eye floaters. Aging can be the most nature reason to cause it. Meanwhile, if you have vision problem such as myopia, hyperopia, or you're too stressful or tried that can lead to eye floaters, too.

    The eyes always see spots in black and the spots flitter with the rotation of the eyeball, just like a floater. It is often caused by high myopia, eyeball internal bleeding or inflammation of the eyes. You'd better go to see a doctor and timely have prevention and treatment.
