i actually talked to a doctor about this and she said it is not linked with my eyes and that this is happening because i'm not active, i spend most of my time on the computer ect. so i started doing some exercises. In about a week im going to get new glasses so i will ask the eye doc there about the problem.Does this sound ok or should i do it sooner ?
There is no medicine or eye exercise which will clear floaters. They can only be removed with vitrectomy surgery. This is NOT recommended unless there is a serious underlying condition causing the floaters, such as a retinal detachment or diabetic hemorrhage. Floaters are normal with age and do not go away. They are most visible against a light background, especially against the sky. Most of the time I do not notice my floaters, unless I look for them. A sudden dramatic increase in or shower of floaters always requires a careful dilated eye exam by an ophthalmologist to rule out a retinal tear or retinal detachment.
