1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

Floaters are caused by particles floating in the vitreous (jelly of the eye) casting a shadow on the retina.
With time they usually settle to the bottom of the eye and out of the vision. New onset floaters should be examined by an opthalmologist asap to rule out retinal tear, hole, detachment.

In brief: Absolutely

3 options; nothing: tolerate and maybe they disappear, move or you get used to them. Yag laser: very few doctors offer this.
Not recommended by retinal specialists as it has higher chance of retinal tear. Vitrectomy: best option to remove. floaters/">vitrectomy is as safe or safer than cataract surgery..
