None: While there are a variety of causes of floaters, none are preventable. Treatment also varies and is related to the underlying problem. Get checked out because floaters could be related underlying retinal disease or even systemic problems.

Can't: Floaters occur naturally as the vitreous gel undergoes changes with aging. On occasion, floaters can be brought on suddenly by trauma. So avoid trauma. I know of no other solution to the problem. Sorry.
