@googlefanz -- You're right, floaters are related to the eye's vitreous gel. But you don't need to worry. Floaters are basically little bits of debris that are floating around in the vitreous humor, or vitreous gel of your eye.
They are normally not a sign of anything dangerous. Floaters occur in many people (up to 70 percent of all people experience them at some time in their life), and unless they start getting big enough to impair your vision, or you start seeing flashing lights along with them, then you probably don't need to worry.
If you do start seeing issues like that though, you could have a vitreous tear, and would need to see your ophthalmologist at once -- so keep an eye on things, just in case, but don't worry about it. Just one of those weird body things that many people experience.
