Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

Based on your description these are basically eye floaters that are caused by undissolved vitreous gel in the dissolved vitreous fluid. They are normal and require no treatment.

If you experience sudden flashes of light or deterioration in vision then you should consult an ophthalmologist to rule out other causes.

Wishing you best of health

Thanks
