Physiological and Pathological Mosquitoe Floaters

What are the differences between physiological floaters and pathological floaters?

Flying Mosquitoes

Mentioned flying mosquitoes, I believe everyone can literally guess that this is an ophthalmic disease, the fact is true. Patients with flying mosquitoes will have black shadows swaying in front of their eyes when watching things, and the vision is unclear.

Flying mosquitoes can be divided into physiological and pathological types. Below I will introduce you to physiological flying mosquitoes and The difference between pathological floaters.



Physiological flying mosquitoes are called "good mosquitoes" and generally do not need treatment. As long as you take proper rest, avoid fatigue, work and rest must be regular, long-term eye rest 5 to 10 minutes every hour, do not use the computer for too long, if you feel uncomfortable when you use it, it will improve. .


The main symptom of physiological floaters is a black shadow of one or two points, flying around in front of your eyes, sometimes you can see it, sometimes you can’t see it.

When people are very tired and tired, they will feel the movement of mosquitoes is particularly obvious. When older people have the phenomenon of flying mosquitoes, they will feel more intense and obvious than that of middle-aged people.

Physiological flying mosquito

This type of flying mosquito is benign and is called physiological flying mosquito. Experts believe that about 80% of the flying mosquitoes are formed by the hydration of vitreous fibers, which are physiological flying mosquitoes.


Physical floaters do not have the risk of blindness (non-retinal problems). Usually, if there is no major problem, the doctor will recommend not to ignore it, and there will be no problems until the old age.



Pathological flying mosquitoes have three characteristics:

i. Have abnormal flashes.

ii. The number of flying mosquitoes keeps increasing in a short time. iii. The sight is blocked.

Pathological flying mosquitoes are generally caused by serious diseases, which are caused by changes in the structure of the omentum, optic nerve, ciliary body and other structures near the vitreous body.

Mosquitoe Borne Diseases

Suddenly there are a lot of flying mosquitoes, a lot of flashes, strange things such as distortion, straight lines, face distortion, etc.

The direction of the mosquito flying is uncertain, black shadows obscure the field of vision, poor vision, visual field defects, etc.

It is a bad omen that must be paid attention to, indicating that the vitreous body may be deteriorating acutely, or the retina is in danger of being broken. See the ophthalmology and check the retina as soon as possible. If the diagnosis is confirmed, surgery is often required.


Pathological flying mosquitoes are also a manifestation of the disease, mostly caused by middle and high myopia, intraocular hemorrhage, inflammation, etc.

In general, these causes can be found by simple inspection, and need to be treated for the cause to heal. The physiological floaters have no cause and no special treatment is required.

 Pathological flying mosquitoes mainly caused by lens and vitreous lesions

Clinical findings indicate that flying mosquitoes have a "preferred preference" for white-collar workers. Pathological flying mosquitoes are mainly caused by lens and vitreous lesions. Lens opacity is called cataract. The lens is a bit flaky at the beginning. A patchy black shadow appeared in front of the eyes.

Due to the high density of the lens, the cloud point rotates in the same direction as the eyeball. That is the same direction as the eye movement. The movement of the black shadow in the glass is opposite to the direction of the eyeball.


Through the introduction of the above content, everyone has a deeper understanding of the difference between physiological and pathological flying mosquitoes.

Physiological flying mosquitoes have no substantial lesions on the eyes and generally do not need treatment.

Pathological flying mosquitoes are a substantial lesion on the eyes. When dangerous symptoms appear, patients should be treated in time to avoid blindness.

Difference Between COVID-19 Coronavirus and Other Flu Epidemic Infections

What are the differences between COVID-19 and the flu epidemic? The epidemic caused by the new Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is still spreading. This disease, which has just been officially named COVID-19, has caused more than 40,000 infections and more than 1,000 deaths. At the same time, on the other side of the ocean, another epidemic also attracted people's attention. The flu season in the United States is on schedule.  According to data released by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as of February 1, 22 million to 31 million people are expected to be infected during the flu season, and the number of patients dying from influenza is between 12,000 and 30,000.  Seeing such figures, some readers may be surprised when they think: Is the flu epidemic in the United States worse?   What are the differences between COVID-19 and the flu epidemic? Is this really the case? What are the differences between COVID-19 and the flu epidemic? T

Considerations Before Electrocardiogram ECG Test

Considerations Before Going for Electrocardiogram, ECG Test 1. Female examiners avoid wearing dresses 2. Avoid the influence of drugs  Some drugs directly or indirectly affect the results of electrocardiogram, such as digitalis, quinisil, etc.  This is because drugs affect the metabolism of the myocardium, people taking such drugs affect the ECG graphics. Therefore, you should explain to the doctor which medicines you have taken recently to avoid misdiagnosis. During ECG inspection: 1. Please relax as much as possible during the inspection to ensure the quality of the inspection. 2. Perform when the test is quiet. Bioelectricity is generated due to muscle activity. Crying, taking deep breaths and moving the limbs will affect the ECG results.  Thus, it should be done when the child or person is quiet.  If necessary, give the sick child some sedatives to prevent interference caused by other muscle activities.
