Unfortunately there is no treatment! Floaters are the results of vitreous, the jelly inside of the eye, degeneration. Luckily it is a benign condition on its own. With time the floaters key move out of your visual axis or your brain will learn to block them out. There are a few ophthalmologist whom laser the floaters and feel that this is a good treatment but lasering has too many possible side effects and it has not been proven to be effective!
Allow some time to pass and you will forget all about your floaters!!!
