In brief: Vitreous floaters

Floaters are generally age specific changes in the eye's viscous fluids in the compartment behind the iris.
Occasionally floaters arise from diseases or trauma that may require medical and or surgical treatment. Therefore, depending on the problem, a surgical treatment to resolve the problem often eliminates the floaters. Otherwise, the floaters will remain without unnecessary evacuation.
