Amitabh further writes that he did not get any benefit from this artificial remedy and on this, he said, "Mother's Pallu is Mother's Pallu !!"

Why do such floaters appear on the eyes?

Although there can be many reasons for such dark spots/floaters on the eyes, this problem becomes common in old age. According to the Magruder Eye Institute, our eyes are filled with a special thick gelatinous substance called vitreous. With our growing age, the thickness of this substance decreases and it becomes liquid. During this time, there is pressure on the upper surface of the eyes, which causes clumps.
