In brief: Floaters/Flashes

Floaters and flashes are caused by changes in the vitreous gel of the eye.
Flashes usually go away within a few weeks, but floaters tend to persist for much longer. Over time the floaters tend to be less bothersome, but this is a gradual process that's different for each individual. Unfortunately glasses will not help. If the floaters or flashes worsen you should get rechecked for a retinal tear.

In brief: No treatment

Floaters can only go away with surgery.
Glasses will not help them go away. Floaters are a change of the fluid in the back of the eye. Removal of the fluid there is the only way to get rid of the floaters, but ip has its risks. If the vision is good just have a little patience and the floaters will be less problematic wit time.
