Asteroid Hyalosis

 Asteroid bodies are composed of crystalline calcium formations, but their presence does not indicate problematic systemic calcium levels.  Patients with this finding may complain of numerous floaters in their vision accompanied by annoying glare.  Symptoms rary depending on location of the deposits and amount.  These conditions are not dangerous and very rarely require treatment.  If a surgical remedy for this condition is indicated, it involves surgical removal and replacement of the vitreous gel.
