    I have had cataract surgery and have floaters. Are they safe?

      Hello Eli,
      Floaters are quite common following cataract surgery, and unless the are accompanied by pain, loss of vision or suddenly become worse, there is nothing to worry about.

    How do I know if the floaters in my eye are benign or dangerous?

    • staff says:

      Hi Gerry,
      Floaters are nearly alwas benign, But if they are accompanied by flashes of light, pain or loss of vision, or if they get suddenly get worse, this may indicate a problem like retinal tearing and you should visit a doctor right away.

    I have had a retina detachment and I have a lot of lot of floaters in that eye. They are irritating but if I move my eye around I can still see fine.
