Do you see little dots and other shapes in your field of vision?

Men’s Health says little dots and other shapes in your field of vision sounds like classic floaters. These black flecks are collagen fibers that clump together and dart around in the jellylike substance at the back of your eyeball, casting shadows on your retina. Floaters tend to show up with age and don’t come and go. They just seem more obvious when you look at something like a white wall. You can’t do anything about them, except take comfort in knowing that you’re not alone, three out of four people see them, according to one study. If you notice an unusual number of new floaters, have your eyes checked. “Occasionally, floaters can signify an inflammatory eye disease or damage to the retina, including the possibility of a slight-threatening retinal detachment,” says John Mason III, M.D., an associate professor of ophthalmology at the University of Alabama.
