    Very normal for people that are near sited to have floaters.I am 58 and first got them around your age.I was so freaked out as I didnt know what they are.They are generally harmless unless you suddenly see alot of them,which can mean a detached retina.The key to floaters is dont focus on them. Believe it or not,eventually your brain will learn to not notice them.You will if you think about it,but usually it will just be in the background of your mind.

    Floaters are common if you are near sited. dont concentrate on them and eventally you wont hardly notice them. I have had them since your age,I am now 58.

    Don't worry about the floaters. They'll disappear one way or another.

    The grey-blue eye-white sounds enviable... like a baby's!

    Enjoy its brilliance.

    Don't worry. When you're in your 60s (yes, it will happen!) and your eyes are yellow and bloodhsot, you'll remember those lovely grey-blue sclera of yours and weep!

    (I mean I'm not a specialist, so if you really thnk there's something to be concerned about, check with your eye doctor.)
