Hello...as explained beautifully by my colleague, these floaters are harmless...only way to get rid of them is to ignore them...slowly over a period the brain will adapt itself to avoid them..so chill

These are known as floaters.. It happens because of degeneration of the jelly inside the eye known as vitreous. Happens early in myopes or people having glasses with negative power. They are harmless and you need not worry about them. But if you notice a shower of floaters, kindly see a retina specialist to rule out any treatable pathology in your retina.
