Hello,If you only have a few eye floaters that don't change over time, it usually does not indicate a serious eye problem. It's important to see an eye doctor if: Eye floaters seem to worsen over time, especially if the changes are sudden in onset.You experience flashes of light or any vision loss accompanied by eye floaters. You develop eye floaters after eye surgery or eye trauma.You have eye pain along with eye floaters. Coming to treatment,Benign eye floaters almost never require medical treatment.If they are bothersome, you can move them away from your field of vision by moving your eyes. This maneuver shifts the fluid in your eyes. Looking up and down is usually more effective than looking from side to side.If eye floaters are so dense and numerous that they affect your vision, your eye doctor may consider a surgical procedure called a vitrectomy. During this procedure, the vitreous and its floating debris are removed and replaced with a salt solution.Vitrectomy may have complications, such as: Retinal detachment,Retinal tears,Cataracts
