Eye Floaters (cont.)

Self-Care at Home

Benign eye floaters require no additional care, other than a follow-up examination as recommended. Pathologic eye floaters require exquisite cooperation with the eye doctor to take all prescribed oral and eyedrop medications, make all scheduled follow-up and treatment visits, and restrict activity if necessary. Collaboration with the family doctor, internist, or endocrinologist may be essential as well.
