I see quite a number of floaters in my vision since past few years.. they're very distracting, particularly when there's a light background also I see light flashes at the edge of my vision at times.. please advise on what could be the possible reasons for this & how can it be cured?

Hello..... Eye floaters are small spots that drift through your field of vision. A sudden increase in the number of floaters,flashes of light, loss of side vision,changes that come on quickly and get worse over time are the warning signs you must consult ophthalmologist you if you have any of these symptoms.
