I have just gone in for cataract surgery and removel of the vitreous jell from both eyes due to them both being full of appalling floaters.After the surgeon removed the vitreous fluid from my eyes that eyes refilled themselves minutes Thus the eye produces the fluid inself, amazing!
If floaters don't improve over time or significantly affect your vision,an operation to replace the vitreous humour with saline (salt) solution may be considered.This procedure is called vitrectomy.A vitrectomy removes the vitreous humour, along with its floating debris, from the eye.This is carried out after your eye has been numbed with a local anaesthetic.The vitreous is replaced with a salt solution - as the vitreous humour is mostly water anyway, you won't notice any difference.
