    Eye floaters means there are infinitesimal strands of fiber in the vitreous of the eye. Almost everyone who is at the age of 70 has eye floaters with harmless in one or both eyes. However, if there are too many floaters or are accompanied by flashing lights, it could cause a serious problem. Until now, there is no safe and effective medicine or treatment to eliminate or decrease floaters. Maybe it can be removed by laser successfully but it still stays at the clinical trial stage.
