In brief: No

New or worse floaters and/or flashing lights in your vision can be a pvd; however, there may also be a retinal tear or retinal detachment.
So one must have an urgent dilated retinal exam to rule out the more serious complications. Vitrectomy can be done to remove eye floaters from a pvd, but this is usually too invasive a procedure for this condition.
