How do i treat eye floaters naturopathically?

Easily: Since there is no actual treatment for floaters, then naturopathic remedies, offering no treatment anyway, can be used with no risk. If you have had the sudden onset of floaters you need your eyes evaluated by an ophthalmologist who can rule out any serious problem and discuss the prognosis of the floaters with you.

Not sure: Not sure of naturopathically. With time most resolve or become asymptomatic. Recommended to wait one year then consider vitrectomy if symptoms are bad enough.

See opthalmologist: Tiny spots/ordinary eye floaters are very common and usually aren't cause for alarm. Doctors are willing to perform such surgery in rare instances when vision seriously is hampered. The way to clean the vitreous and its specks and webs is to remove the gel-like substance entirely from the eye through a vitrectomy procedure. Usually, the vitreous is then replaced with saline.

Yes: Most floaters go away or become insignificant over time. Occasionally they stay, and can be removed with surgery or with laser treatment. There are not many surgeons who perform these surgeries! http://www.2020vision.Com/floaters.Html.
