See below: We all have a few "floaters" in the eyes. Unless you get new floaters, it is okay to ignore these. You may consult this site for information on this topic. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/eye-floaters/basics/definition/CON-20033061 For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

You need to see a doctor only if there have been new floaters. If there has been no change, then you do not need to see a doctor as the existing floaters will not do any harm.
