Floaters R not from: glasses. Also, it can disappear even faster than 6 months, as soon as they settle to below your visual axis (vision area). Everyone gets or will get floaters during their lifetime. The best is when your brain starts cancelling them out, and forgetting that they're such a nuisance.
