I am in my 40's and I have had floaters since my early teens. Some are single spots and others are "strands" that bunch up into a ball from time to time. They cross my vision frequently and are extremely prominent when viewing anything bright, such as a white surface, computer screen or outside on a bright day - especially when looking at the sky (which was mentioned previously). They can be annoying but one learns to live with them and eventually they become unnoticed for the most part.

My opthamalogist tells me these are quite normal and are caused by particles within the lining of the eye occasionally breaking away and floating around in the jelly (or vitreous). Contrary to popular belief, its not protein formation.

If a sudden mass of them were to appear and significantly cloud your vision, get to a specialist because this is indicative of blood in the eye, which can be caused by retinal damage and tears in the lining. If left too long, the vitreous can work in through the tear, get behind the retina and cause detachment. This is not something you have to wonder about, you'll know if it ever happens because the effects are quite rapid and profound.

I'm aware of all of this because of my experiences with laser surgery and learning that the jelly in my eyes is sticky and tugs on the lining, thus pulling off more tissue than normal.

Seeing repetitive localized flashes in the eye is also a potential symptom of retinal damage and should not be ignored.

Also as previously mentioned, some diseases such as diabetes can cause similar eye conditions to manifest.

Bottom line is that floaters are very normal and only if they form rapidly en masse and possibly accompanied by bright flashes do you need to worry.

Regarding the floaters - I have had them myself and what the doctor told me, might not be entirely correct translated since he told me in Danish, was that it was a common entopic phenomenon and is caused by irregularities in the vitreous body inside the eye. It is common and nothing dangerous at all and it gets more common or worse some might say with age. There are also white/transparrent floaters but they are caused by something entirely different. The white blood corpuscle do not absorb light very well and what is seen as a transparent "blob" is the shadow of these blood corpuscle running through blood vessels near the retina.

Regarding the o-like googles it seems the results for these vary quite a bit O-Like Anti Red Goggles Review - DO NOT BUY The pair that Tstelee tested in that thread work well, but that are only the red ones and others stated getting 6mW through from a 155mW laser.
