hello floaters are due to vitreous (gel in eye) liquifaction there is no treatment for this just avoid seeing them these are entirely normal consult ophthalmologist if these suddenly increase in number This is a provisional diagnosis. consult your ophthalmologist for detailed examination

Hi, you are having floaters, its normal when u see against a light background, but if you have flashes of lights and vision disturbances then see a retina specialist soon. There is no treatment for it, if your retina is normal you can ignore it, they will stay for life.. Look out for increase in these floaters in future and visit ophthalmologist soon if you experience above mentioned symptoms ...
