    Well, yes, apple cider vinegar can help to reduce eye floaters. Generally speaking, eye floaters are basically little blobs of protein that float through the hollow sphere which is filled with a thick, gel like fluid known as the vitreous humor. And according to some experts, it is harmless to have them, so you do not need to worry about it. But on the other hand, you can try apple cider vinegar to treat it. Apple cider vinegar is quite rich in minerals, vitamins and enzymes. With more them in a long term, your situation can be relieved. Also, you should also pay attention to other factors, such as eye infection.

    Eye floaters are the small moving spots which are noticeable when people looking at blackboard, blue sky or white paper. There are various conditions or diseases which could trigger eye floaters. The most common reason is age. As aging, the vitreous humor in eyes shrinks, and so do the millions of collagen fibers in it. These shreds like fibers build up and change the amount of light reaching to the retina. This is why people saw floaters. Other triggers include retinal tear, retinal detachment, migraine, eye tumor, eye injury or surgery, vitreous hemorrhage and diabetic retinopathy and so on. Although apple cider vinegar is indeed very good for human health, it can allaying tiredness, promoting decomposition of fatty and control weight, whitening skin, anti-aging, degrading cholesterol and boosting immunization. From its function, we can tell, to some extent, it might help reduce eye floaters. Any way eye floaters are not hazardous but just annoying. If you concentrate your attention on something else, you can't notice the floaters any more.


    You'd better take the risk to use apple cider vinegar as eye drops in this case. Eyes are pretty sensitive, so that you need to use the safest way, such as use artificial tears. Most of the eye floaters are harmless, so they can disappear on their own. Except artificial, you have another choice. Use an injector to reduce the floaters. Fulfill the injector with pure water or physiological saline, then push the liquid into your eyes through the corner of your eyes.
