Possible Floater Medicine?

Hello
I was wondering if there is any drug out there that helps reduce seeing floaters and flashes in your eyes?  I have been to the eye doctor and my eyes are fine.  The are just really annoying.

Thanks

If you have already been to the eye doctor and the doctor has ruled out any causes of floaters, it may be that you just have them. You would need to have a doctor diagnose the cause of the floaters to treat them with medication. Most spots and floaters in the eye are harmless and merely annoying. Many will fade over time and become less bothersome. If it becomes too bothersome and it is affecting your daily routine, I would contact your eye doctor again to see what he or she recommends. There is not anything to my knowledge that is specifically prescribed for eye floaters.
Best of luck to you,
