I've had floaters for probably 20 yrs. I'm 79. They are hardly noticeable now.

I use 20mg Jarrow Lutein
Crystalline drops (Pure Formulas)
Simalasan for Dry Eyes
Grape Seed Extract (circulation)

No cataracts and I'm happy with my eye health management.

Since you mentioned pain along with the sudden onset of floaters I would suggest an eye exam to make sure there is nothing else going on.

You need to see an eye doctor.

OP: Take breaks from computer starring and BLINK eyes a lot...we all forget to BLINK and generate fluids. I'm sure doctors will tell you to BLINK...yeah sure. Tell you to take breaks from the screens...

Go to the eye doctor.
Floaters CAN be a sign of detached retina.
On the other hand, they can be harmless and stable (I have a bunch I don't even see anymore.)
For your own peace of mind, get a professional opinion.

No, you are not "sure".

This is my concern. It may be nothing, but better to find out than to wait and end up with permanent damage to your vision.

Yes, definitely a visit to your eye doctor.

I have vision issues and these are the vitamins my Ophthalmologist suggested.

ICaps by Alcon, Lutein Enriched Multivitamin, Coated Tablets

When you buy meds online you have no idea what you are really getting. Buy from a pharmacy only.
Search "counterfeit drugs"

Don’t fool around with your eyes. See a doctor. My “floaters” were a symptom of a torn retina, which can lead to blindness. Also, eye, pain is not normal.
