Dear XXXXXX,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
We usually for a while for the floaters and blood in vitreous to absorb on their own.
If even after a few months it does not absorb then it is to operated.
This is a very specialized work and and costs a lot.
What you have to do in the meanwhile is to follow instructions,have vitamin c and rest of the treatment which has been prescribed to you and see if it is improving in 3 months time ,otherwise surgery will be needed.
Most of these absorb on their own.
Please do get back to me in case of further query in this regard.

Dear XXXXXX,
Thanks for getting back to us.
You have to be under constant medical care.Your problem is to be examined,charted and followed up properly.
These get better as the time passes as nature takes care of the body,but if it does not improve satisfactorily then surgery is another option.
Be under constant supervision.
