Hi, Please contact with an eye specialist. I think you are suffering from vitamin deficiency. Take some green vegetables & fruits daily in your food.

Rx, 1) Euph. 200/6D/OD - morning for 6 days.
2) Bell. 1M /4D/BD - for 2 days.

hello.dont worry these are known as floaters seen in many conditions like advancing age/myopia.they occur due to the gel in the eye getting liquified.these are not to be ignored when you see flashes,veil etc.please get your fundus checked

Some thing floating on eye surface could be as simple as mucous strand associated with dry eye in people who work on computer for long hours. In high myopes like you floaters are common because of vitreous degeneration. Few fine strands are of no consequence but sudden increase in floaters, a large veil should make you rush to an ophthalmologist. Try lubricating eye drops, visit an eye specialist for retina checkup by indirect ophthalmoscope annually.
Take care
