See an Eye MD: It probably is just a floater but you should have an exam by and eye md to be sure it is not something more significant. After i had cataract surgery, i had my floaters removed surgically.

May be retinal: This may signifiy a problem with the retina. When you blink it stresses the retina with rapid changes in light intensity and may uncover a weaker spot. Should be looked at with a dilated examination by an ophthalmologist.
