Eye floaters and health anxiety

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hey guys, is it normal to have eye floaters? I'm really scared as i google them and they kept saying some worst scenario like retinal detachment and other stuff and its making me scared a lot. I do play games a lot and i work on programming. I went to an optician and change my glasses and they just mentioned to me that my Astigmatism went up abit that is all and there is nothing else.
