Occasional floaters are usually normal and seen commonly in the population. You may notice that you see them especially in brightly lit areas and when you look at the sky. If they are associated with flashes of light (like a camera flash) or reduced cousin or they are many in number/ sudden increase in floaters, it is advisable to get a retinal evaluation done. Else it's quite innocuous

don't worry too much about it if you don't have the above symptoms.

usually they are nonpathological and are called m uscae volitntentes. needs no treatment, just omit them but if your vision is also affected then you must get your fundus exam done by an ophthalmologist.
