No: Vitreous floaters are commonly assosciated with normal aging of the eye. Infrequently they can be caused by diseases. Your MD has given you an evaluation and states your eyes are healthy. That's great news. Floaters will remain and gradually change over time. But any sudden increases in them should alert you to reevaluation.
