Floaters can be normal if it disappears after a few seconds but the sudden onset of persistent floaters, sometimes accompanied by lightning-like flashes of light, can signal something serious. This can be a sign that the retina is tearing which can cause blindness. Sudden and persistent floaters should be checked by an eye specialist.
