Welcome to Just Answer
Floaters are most often due to posterior vitreous
detachment ( PVD ) and it is due to aging .It is as such a harmless condition and does not require any treatment . Rarely in the event of it causing traction on the retina,it may result in retinal tears which occasionally progress to a retinal detachment
. This is characterised by a sudden decrease in vision or rather like a curtain falling in the line of vision, and should be reported to an ophthalmologist
As of now you do not have any visual complaint , so very unlikely that you have any problem in the retina. You need to report to an ophthalmologist immediately only in case you have acute visual complaints explained above. For precautionary measures you can get a retina test done at your convenience later.
Only when the floaters are large and obstruct vision or hamper daily routine activities, surgical removal of vitreous called vitrectomy
, but is done rarely as the surgery itself can cause more complications.
Thanks and best wishes
