Eye Floaters

Alex_Myopic:
I have heard from some sellers that having hyaluronic acid (a major component in vitreous body) as a dietary supplement may help some people clear eye floaters but I don't know how truth this is.

Alex_Myopic:
Here are some notes I have taken about eye floaters by reading the whole book "the myopia manual"
http://www.myopia-manual.de/

-Avoid or protect against sunlight or sunlamps (me personally I believe that sun can not benefit and harm at very few extreme occasions)
-Avoid excessive supplementation of vitamin C
-Avoid excessive, unbalancing supplementation of zinc or copper
-Avoid excessive intake of food rich in phosphorus (Colas have phosphoric acid)
-Iodine does good for the synthesis of the vitreous body
-Vitamin C, smoking and heat can degenerate hyaluronic acid (in the vitreous body)
-Mg, Zn and Cu are very useful metals for the synthesis of hyaluronic acid (cocoa and chocolate has all of this minerals in large amounts http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/sweets/5471/2)

CapitalPrince:
are people with higher myopia more likely to develop floaters? I had a very annoying floater a few years ago, but for some reason it disappeared. I rarely ever notice floaters now and i certainly do not want more of these things in my eye.

Alex_Myopic:
Yes, especially with high myopia the eyeball elongates so there are more chances of vitreous body detachment or biochemical anomalies.

CapitalPrince:
thanks alex,

another reason for me to avoid the minus.
