Eye floaters

Been to the optician who has said I have a few floaters but not to worry unless they get more and more or I seeing flashing lights.
Anyone else have floaters? I have inflammatory arthritis and a side effect of that is uveitis (inflammation of the eye) but I didn't think I'd had this side effect.
I'm 40 and feel like I'm falling apart!

I have them. It's a sign of getting older, I'm afraid, probably nothing to do with your arthritis.

Do they bother you at all? I'm so used to mine I normally don't notice them at all.

Iv had floaters. Terrible when I was about 20...getting better now tho.

I've had them for ages, at least 10 years I'd say and I'm only 26! No idea what causes them or what you can do about them?

I have these and I'm under 20.. I get them at work when I'm under bright lights.

Anyone know what's wrong?

I have them, my optician told me the same as yours at least 10 years ago.
