Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Floaters are very common and you need not worry unless it has increased in number or you have flashes of light with it and a progressing hazy vision. If you have these additional symptoms,then please have a retinal specialist opinion.High myopia and old age (posterior vitreous detachment) can cause them.

Your blind spot, is it located only in one eye at the same site like a curtain? A floater with a curtain shaped dark area must not be ignored as it could be a retinal detachment too.

Grey patch in eye may be due to thin sclera or in younger age group vitamin deficiency.
We have veins throughout our white part of the eye(sclera), a few of which becomes prominent sometimes due to a reaction against allergy/heat/infection.So no worries about them too.

If you are too concerned about the number of floater get examined at the earliest with an ophthalmologist specialized in Retina.
Take care.
