Hello Mr. Robin, eye floaters occur as people age, the floaters are not actual spots on the eyeballs, they're shadows of blocked light. There's a gel-like substance called vitreous in our eyeballs. As we age, the vitreous clumps into small debris, the debris blocks some of the light passing through the eye, casting tiny shadows on the retina, so you feel the floaters. For most healthy people, there's no need to treat the floaters. Doctors will tell you to get used to them. If you have diabetes, eye trauma, inflammation, you'll need to see an eye doctor. If the floaters are affecting your vision, you'll need to see an eye doctor.
