My eye doctor checked me for checked for retina detachment -- Nothing.
He said eye drops twice a day - To lubricate the eyes. I notice it does help. Just a brand like Refresh.
He added that cataracts don't have anything to do with floaters. Floaters involve the white of the eye.

Floaters are not in the “white of the eye”, correctly called the sclera...they are inside the eye. They can be harmless, or indicative of a serious problem, especially in they suddenly worsen & limit vision.

Hi, I've taken grape seed so long, and now use Olympian Labs and buy from iherb.com and amazon sells this brand too. I'm taking 200mg a couple times a day in advancing years.

Crystalline drops I get from Pure Formulas online. Amazon may sell them, you can check.

Working on my health with prevention, keeps me from doctors offices. There are exceptions, of course, but before the world of more and more doctors, mankind worked on their own health...my mother taught me a lot and it' stuck with me. When floaters came on I never feared this...talked to other friends and they were having them too. Now if you have pain, that's another thing. I don't have pain. j

I'm sure I did many searches on floaters.

See an eye doctor. No one here is qualified to help you or give you medically sound advice. If there were any medical doctors here, they'd advise you to see a professional rather than coming to an internet forum for advice - a lot of it very bad advice indeed.

To the rest of you here: if you give bad advice, a person takes it, and loses their eyesight or worse (if for example there's a tumor involved), you might be legally liable in case the person or his/her estate decides to pursue action against you.

Better to see a doctor. Not a good idea to get medical advice from random strangers on the internet.

I second that. It’s OK to share experiences, but for questionable medical situations, see a doctor, a REAL doctor, or maybe see 2 or 3 doctors.
