The Vitreous has a gel-like structure and fills the eye cavity located between the lens and the retina. It consists of 99% water and 1% collagen and hyaluronic acid and other substances. Despite the fact that the composition of the vitreous body there is a minimal amount of hyaluronic acid and collagen, they are essential components. Hyaluronic acid provides a gel-like structure of the vitreous body, and collagen is its frame.


The Vitreous is completely transparent due to the composition of the molecules and a strictly defined structure. Due to different factors these molecules are subject to decay into fragments, which entails a qualitative change in the composition of the vitreous body. As a result, in a body there are particles that do not possess optical transparency, and therefore the person sees "floating flies", which is not caused by destruction of the body. Hemorrhage into the vitreous body, and in some cases, the medications cause the visual effect which is similar to that observed in DST.

Sometimes flies can occur due to high blood pressure. In this case it is necessary to monitor AD, especially when flies appear.

But don't panic, if the "flies", especially if they are quite a bit, and it causes a psychological discomfort. Sometimes people pay attention to them and sometimes not.

Turning to the doctor, don't be surprised if he does not find problems with the vitreous body. The size, composition, structure and location of flying flies are of great importance in discovering the causes of the phenomenon, which worries the patient.

Hemorrhage into the vitreous body

Sometimes, though rarely, this unpleasant phenomenon can disappear by itself. Clouding of the vitreous body is not physically lost, it just goes into the invisible area. If at the appointment the doctor found no problems, threatening the vision, then treatment is not needed, just need to adapt psychologically to the phenomenon.

Treatment of floaters involves several methods.

1. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It is believed that the condition of the vitreous body can be correlated with the condition of the human body. For example, if you have a disease like diabetes,it needs to be treated. Standard practices for maintaining a healthy lifestyle is a matter to maintain good physical form and give up all bad habits. If you follow these simple rules, there is every chance that the vitreous will not present you with surprises in the form of flying flies.

Treatment floaters

2. The use of drugs. At the present time there are no such medicines that eliminate the flies or prevent the emergence of new. A large number of manufacturers of dietary Supplements and medicines engage in speculation on this issue and openly declare that their product is effective with floaters.

3. The laser treatment. With this method of treatment with the use of a neodymium YAG laser, clouded fragments break up into very small particles that will not interfere with the vision. It is believed that this method is fraught with side effects.

4. Treatment with vitrectomy. When this procedure is fully or partially removed vitreous body, respectively, are removed and "floaters." Body replace with balanced salt solution.

A Vitrectomy is serious surgery that can entail cataract, hemorrhage in the eye cavity or retinal detachment. Despite its effectiveness, this method is very risky.
