What are the symptoms of floaters?

Floaters cast shadows on the retina, which is what you can see. They usually develop as your eyes get older, as part of your natural ageing process.

Common symptoms:

  • Small spots or “cobwebs” which flick across the field of vision on eye movement
  • A generalised mistiness of vision, often described as a fog or mist which may cause glare and increased difficulty in bright light
