People constantly ask me about floaters. This is good because they are paying attention and they know that they have been told that if they have a sudden change in floaters, either size or amount, they should call or come to the office right away to evaluate for potentially vision threatening problems.
But for most people, it turns out that we have floaters normally, we just don't notice them that often. Right now, if I look at the computer screen and space out, I can see them, but I haven't thought about them all day.
This is a nice little video that my mom sent me that explains floaters in an easy to understand way. I thought it would be good for sharing.
