Wear safety glasses (plane glass if you have no refraction error or prescription glasses if have refraction error) to protect eye from external trauma like poking,putting pressure on eye,rubbing etc.

Make sure your sugar levels are in normal ranges.

Do not give excessive strain to eyes, give proper rest by taking frequent breaks while reading,watching computer,TV etc & also sleep properly at night

Try to reduce stress & anxiety, particularly about eye floaters & other eye problems as it can create new floater's.

Good luck!

Stress and anxiety do not create floaters but they make existing floaters worse since people that are anxious, depressed and stressed tend to fixate on them.

we do not know how to prevent floaters. They are a nomral part of aging 50% by age 50 and 75% by and 70.

A new medicine that will disolve floaters is under study. it is still experimental

Use the search feature and archives if you want to read the many many many extended discussion of floaters.

sun glasses in bright sunlight is good for the eyes but will not prevent floaters

It's just a guess but I suspect the medicine that disolves floaters will be available in 5-10 years.

While sunglasses will not prevent floaters, polarized versions will help you cope with the floaters you have.  Lighter floaters are far less noticeable with sunglasses on, and the hazy outline many floaters get is greatly reduced as well.  They don't make the floaters go away, nor do you not see them at all, but the sure do help.
