What causes floaters in the field of vision post cataract surgery?
Have noted your details.
I understand your concern.
As per your query yes they can be floaters.Most of the eye’s interior is filled with vitreous, a gel-like substance that fills about 80 percent of the eye and helps it maintain a round shape. As we age, the vitreous slowly shrinks and pulls away from the retina’s surface. This is called a vitreous detachment, and is normal. In most cases, there are no adverse effects, except for a small increase in floaters, which are little “cobwebs” or specks that seem to float about in your field of vision.Vitreous detachment is one of the most common long term complication post cataract surgery.As you are seeing smoke like shadows and a black line thorough investigation should be done to rule out vitreous detachment.
