Eye floaters are small spots which "float" over the retina in your eye, casting shadows. They are the product of a clear fluid called a vitreous humour, which is located inside your eye. These floaters appear as dots, threads, and sometimes what is called a cobweb. Some floaters remain in your line of vision while others float around the periphery and move when your eyeball does, but all fade away over time. While eye floaters pose no threat, they tend to become more abundant with age.
Keep in mind that if your floaters are mild, your best approach to a cure may be to ignore them; after a few weeks of a floater's presence, your brain will recognise it as a permanent fixture and learn to ignore the floater. Exercise at least three times a week to keep your body and mind healthy. There are natural eye drops you can take to improve your vitreous and eliminate floaters. This natural eye drop, rather than being made of a saline solution featuring active chemicals, consists of bilberry, lutein and antioxidants (see Resources). Or try an unorthodox approach--staring at the moon nightly. Many ophthalmologists believe that five minutes of staring at the moon each night improves your eyes' health and focus and also helps your brain learn to disregard floaters.
As with almost every other health issue or consideration, a healthy diet is essential. Infuse your diet with vegetables and cut back (or eliminate) fast food. Consider a glass of red wine each night, which is said to be good for the heart as well as the eyes. Take bilberry, an herb with improves circulation and oxygen delivery to your eye, and rooibos, which helps to maintain eye health as you age. Or take sutherlandia frutescens, which has antioxidants that can improve eye strength.
