What are eye floaters? Am I going blind?

What are eye floaters? I thought I was going blind when I first discovered eye floaters and watched them move around my eyeball. I completely expected that in under 10 years I would loose my vision completely, boy was I happy to find out they are not only common but completely natural and benign. It turns out an eye floater is simply the collagen in your eye's clumping together and creating a less translucent area which impedes the flow of light to your retina. At least that is MY simplified explanation of eye floaters, for more understanding, checkout this video:
