It’s no surprise, but did you know that half of Americans don’t have the optimal 20/20 vision range?
That’s right! And for many of these people, it could be hard to see things that are either far or near. Some also have blurred vision due to astigmatism.
But farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism are only three common vision problems. According to experts, as many as two-thirds of US adults suffer from eye or vision concerns.
And while many don’t consider “eye floaters” as problems, they can, in fact, be a sign of poor eye health.
That’s because many eye floater causes are serious eye diseases and injuries. What’s worse, some of these causes can lead to permanent vision loss.
So, what then are the primary causes of those annoying floating specks in your vision? Do they warrant an emergency trip to the Ophthalmologist?
We’ll answer all these questions in this post, so keep reading to learn all about eye floaters!
