Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.

These are floaters and these are opacities in the jelly like fluid in the back of eye.They move with the movement of the eye .They do not need any treatment. If they are bothering you too much the a course of vitamin C can be taken 500 mg once a day for 6 weeks.

We in our practice counsel the patients to ignore them and mostly they are happy.
Do get back to me in case of any further query in this regard.
