If the floaters are new are relatively new, you need to visit an ophthalmologist for a full dilated eye exam. The doctor will be looking for a retinal tear, retinal detachment or bleeding inside the eye. Luckily, in most cases the only finding will be a separation between the vitreous gel which fills the back of the eye and the retina. However, if a retina problem is found, it usually needs immediate treatment to prevent visual loss.
Most "normal" floaters are not treated. They tend to get less bothersome with time. For the vast majority of people, the risk of surgical treatment (there is no medical treatment) is much greater than the annoyance caused by the floaters.
Bottom line, if the floaters are new you need to be examined.
I checked with my doctor first and I recommend you do the same. After that I did a lot of research on the issue online. I found a lot of help at seeingblackspots.com and the solution recommended there has helped me solve my issue about 90%, I love my eyes now where before they caused me so much grief! hope this helps
"Most eye floaters decrease in size and darkness with time. Some of this is due to actual absorption of the floater through the natural processes within the eye. Eye floaters may also shift in position within the eye, resulting in less of a shadow effect. In addition, the nerves within the brain adapt to and often become used to the presence of eye floaters, ignoring them in a manner similar to your only noticing the feeling of shoes on your feet when you think about it. Eye floaters eventually tend to become less bothersome."
