I keep reading about people seeing floaters? What are they since I've never heard that term used before?

Floaters are some kind of deposit in the retina, something like that. Here are a few links you can read about them.

This should keep you busy for a while. It also should ease your mind that floaters don't mean anything.

Floaters can also refer to a different kind of deposit entirely, one which you DEFINITELY wouldn't want in your retina!

It also ease your mind even further to know that these floaters also don't mean anything.
