Treating floaters: There is no cure for benign floaters. No medications or supplements will help. Fortunately with time, floaters to become less noticeable and problematic. Any sudden change in floaters, especially if accompanied by flashing light, is an emergency. Otherwise, just try your best to live with it. Surgical treatment for floaters would be very expensive and not without significant risk.

Floaters: There are many causes for eye floaters. Most are benign but some point to retinal or hematological problems. First see a qualified md or do ophthalmologist and make sure they are benign. At times there are laser methods to help. Bioflavonoids are said to help but with little scientific evidence.
