Hello,

I am 23 years old. I have been seeing floaters since early in my teens.
From what I have read, floaters are usually caused by the loosening of the gel object
in the eye(vitreous object). When the gel becomes loose or more liquid cells and other tiny things
inside the eye starts to move around and becomes noticeable to the eye as floaters.

Is there anyway that can help the gel to regain its ardness (as in an eye that has no floaters)? I was wondering if the gel can be hardened the cells (and other tiny things) in the eye will stop moving so there'll be no more floaters.

Is there research currently taking place to find out ways the eye (vitreous) gel can be hardened?

Anyone know the answer to my questions? Thanks. Adam
