Use the search feature and archives to read about floaters. May an appointment with an Eye MD ophthalmologist to exam your eyes as some causes of floaters can be serious. Ask your personal MD for a referral or go to www.geteyesmart.org to find an Eye MD near you.

Hi I have been getting eye floaters for the past week and the first 3 days panicked thinking it was something serious so I went to opticians got my eye examined and they were fine but I insisted that I have a full exam so she referred me to the hospital I went the next day and got my eyes examined and they were healthy I just had abit debris in my eyes which cause floaters but nothing serious he said they may go or not but I can live with that cause their are worse things than common eye floaters even a nurse at hospital said she gets floaters alot, all I am saying is don't worry and panic, at first I thought I could be going blind but was me been paranoid everyone gets them some people have them and don't even know it, I read up that 98% of the time floaters are nothing serious. But I would get your eyes checked out for peice of mind and to be sure. Hope I have helped in some way :-)
