I'm 51 a get a lot of floaters in my eyes. Should I be worried?
Qualified optometrist Simon Kay BSc(Hons) MCOptom answers this question.
Floaters are almost always normal. Occassionally they arise from a problem with the retina and can indicate a more serious problem. If they have suddenly developed you should have your eyes examined by your optometrist. In the search box in Ask the Optician put in 'floaters' and you will get lots more information.
