Nuisance: Usually not dangerous. Eyelashes have no effect.

Only treatment I s surgical, a vitrectomy, which removes the fluid from the back portion of the eye and replaces it with another fluid. The risks of surgery does for many people out weight the benefits from such surgery.

No: That won't make it worse, and there really isn't much you can do about them. On rare occasions they can be surgically removed, although i generally don't recommend that.
