Eye Disorders > Vitreous disorders

Vitreous floaters or myodesopsias are spots, cobwebs and other threads, that fluctuate in the visual field just as if they were annoying insects, in fact they are also known as "flying flies".

The vitreous body, a gelatinous material that occupies about 4/5 of the total volume of the eyeball, is crossed by light rays and helps to converge them on the retina.

Physiological ageing processes and certain vitreous diseases cause the degradation of the collagen contained in the vitreous body and lead to the annoying disturbance of the myodesopsias.

Vitreous floaters can, however, be the initial symptom of severe retinal pathologies, such as retinal detachment, or of vitreous degeneration.
