Floaters: Any time you have new spots, or floaters, in your vision you need to have retinal evaluation by an Ophthalmologist. They could indicate a retinal tear or detachment. There are other harmless causes, but please seek evaluation ASAP. If its been a year your risk is low, but you still need an exam.
