Why would i get floaters in both eyes at the same time? don't tell me to see a doctor because 2 eye docs said nothing is wrong.

Floaters: are usually just cells which have sloughed off of the retina because they were replaced by new ones. They can happen in one or both eyes. The reason your eye doctors told you nothing is wrong is that they are not dangerous or vision threatening. They should go away in time. Hope this helps!
