Brief Answer:
Eye exam needed

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I understand your concern. Floaters are usually undissolved crystals or foreign cells floating in the gel-like substance inside the eye. They may have many causes, such as diabetes, breakage of tiny blood vessels inside the eye, infections, eye injury, detachment of the retina or eye disease.

I recommend you see an ophtalmologist for an in person exam, as soon as possible.

I hope this answers your question. You are welcome to ask further.

Wishing you good health and all the best.
