Hello there, Most eye floaters are caused by age-related changes that occur as the jelly-like substance (vitreous) inside your eyes becomes more liquid. Microscopic fibers within the vitreous tend to clump and can cast tiny shadows on your retina, which appear to you as floaters. If your eye floaters impair your vision, which happens rarely, you may have options like lasers to disrupt floaters or surgery. Consult Ophthalmologist..
