White Spot At Eye

What are those floaty things in your eye Michael Mauser

Have you ever noticed something swimmingin your field of visioné It may look like a tiny wormor a transparent blob, and whenever you try to geta closer look, it disappears, only to reappearas soon as you shift your glance. But don't go rinsing out your eyes! What you are seeing is a common phenomenon known as a floater. The scientific name for these objectsis Muscae volitantes,

Latin for quot;flying flies,quot; and true to their name,they can be somewhat annoying. But they're not actually bugsor any kind of external objects at all. Rather, they exist inside your eyeball. Floaters may seem to be alive,since they move and change shape, but they are not alive. Floaters are tiny objectsthat cast shadows on the retina, the lightsensitive tissueat the back of your eye.

They might be bits of tissue, red blood cells, or clumps of protein. And because they're suspendedwithin the vitreous humor, the gellike liquidthat fills the inside of your eye, floaters drift alongwith your eye movements, and seem to bounce a littlewhen your eye stops. Floaters may be onlybarely distinguishable most of the time.

They become more visiblethe closer they are to the retina, just as holding your hand closerto a table with an overhead light will result in a moresharply defined shadow. And floaters are particularly noticeable when you are lookingat a uniform bright surface, like a blank computer screen, snow, or a clear sky,

where the consistency of the backgroundmakes them easier to distinguish. The brighter the light is,the more your pupil contracts. This has an effect similarto replacing a large diffuse light fixture with a single overhead light bulb, which also makesthe shadow appear clearer. There is another visual phenomenonthat looks similar to floaters but is in fact unrelated. If you've seen tiny dots of lightdarting about

when looking at a bright blue sky, you've experienced what is knownas the blue field entoptic phenomenon. In some ways,this is the opposite of seeing floaters. Here, you are not seeing shadows but little moving windowsletting light through to your retina. The windows are actually causedby white blood cells moving through the capillariesalong your retina's surface. These leukocytes can be so largethat they nearly fill a capillary

DermTV Syringomas White Hard Bumps Under Your Eyes DermTV Epi 224

Hello, I'm Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. Today's topic comes from one of Siobhan'sviewers from the YouTube LetzMakeUp channel, that's LETZ MAKEUP. And the question is what are those white hard bumps around the eyeéThey don't act like pimples and they don't respond to treatment like pimples.There's a very good reason they're not pimples. They look like whiteheadsbut they're not. First of

all, they're usually below the eyes, notnext to the eyes or above it, it's usually on the lower lid and they can be whiteor yellow, they can be round or oval and they can be flat topped or sortof dome shaped. They have a special name; they have nothing to do withacne, they're called syringomas and syringomas are really enlargements ofsweat ducts, having nothing to do with oil glands. Let me show you. This isour favorite diagram of the skin and this sweat gland is down here in the middleof the dermis, the middle layer of the skin and when it makes the sweatit has to get the sweat up to

the surface of the skin. So it sends it upthrough this tube which is called a sweat duct and as it comes out ofthe dermis, the middle layer of the skin, it enters the epidermis, the upperlayer of the skin. And when that duct, that tube, going through the epidermisbecomes enlarged, it forms a syringoma. The enlargement of thispart of the duct forms that white, hard, round bump. If you squeeze them,nothing comes out, if you put a pin in them, nothing comes out because they'resolid, they're just enlargements of those tissues and cells thatmake the channel. How do you

treat theseé No creams or skincare productsmake any difference. If you come to a dermatologist's office, each oneindividually has to be operated on, either electrically cauterized or cutout but there's no cream that's going to make a difference. So, if you havethese little, white, round bumps of the lower lid and they bother you,see a dermatologist and he or she can help remove them but no cream is goingto help take care of this one.
