Mini-Quiz: Floaters in the Field of Vision

by Ron Kurtus (revised 11 May 2002)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.



1. How big are the floaters seen in the eye?

Some can be up to 1/4 inch

They can't be measured since they are in the eye

Many are the size of a blood cell

2. How can a detached retina result in seeing more floaters?

Clumps of blood cells can become loosened and float around

Detachment can cause optical illusions

The retina is made up of floaters

3. Should you be concerned if you see an occasional floater in your eye?

Only if you suddenly see many floaters

No, unless you have been consuming large amounts of alcohol

Yes, because it is an indication you are getting older

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in being Healthy. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.


You only have two eyes-- take care of them
