Floaters are opacities in the vitreous cavity that occur as a result of the normal ageing process, or less commonly, due to eye disease such as uveitis, infection, intraocular haemorrhage, retinal tears, or retinal detachment.

Floaters are a common complaint noted in optometric practice but do not cause substantial problems for the majority of patients.1 However, for a minority of patients, the impact of floaters is significant.
