Floaters and tiny light dots

Hello everyone

I'm sorry because my english may not be perfect.

Ok so i started seeing (very rarely) some floaters moving through my eyes when i was young (10 years old) now i'm 22 and see a lot of them (around 10 in each eyes). I also see a lot of tiny light dot moving very fast when i look at the sky.
My vision is perfectly fine but i'm very scared about a bigger problem...
I saw a eyes specialist one year ago and he said that my eyes and retina was fine.

Do i need to worry about something or are the tiny light dot normal ?

Thanks a lot

If you see an ophthalmologist on a regular basis and you don't have retinal problems there's not much to worry about.
Please reead the article "entoptic phenomenon" in wikipedia.

At your age roughly 20% of people experience floaters and it increases about 10% per decade of life (example 50% by and 50). The tiny rapidly moving lights you see as walkietalkie says are almost always entopic phenomena they are blood cells in your retina. I can see them in my eye also. Sometimes called the blue field effect or "flying corpuscle".  Do see an ophthalmoloigst yearly.
