In brief: Floaters

There is no good answer to this question.
As we age, so does the vitreous gel in the eye. As it deteriorates, little pieces of the vitreous cast a shadow on the retina which is what you actually are seeing when you see a floater. People who are highly nearsighted tend to develop floaters earlier in life and they tend to be more bothersome. With the sudden onset of new floaters, call you eye md.
