If I understand you correctly, you are having issues with a significant floater—that you have not had any surgery, i.e. Vitrectomy, and that your ophthalmologist has discouraged such surgery. My first question would be how long you’ve had this? If you’ve given it time to settle down and it is still affecting your vision, if I were you, I would request a referral to a VitreoRetinal specialist. It took a long time for my ophthalmologist to recognize what I was complaining about. In fact it wasn’t until I saw his partner that I got a referral to a specialist. She told me they couldn’t help me but would refer me. Your local ophthalmologist doesn’t have to be the end of the line for you.

Susan, thanks for your reply! I’ve had the clump of “floater debris” for several years. It never dropped from it’s current location.
I did have cataract surgery 3 or 4 years ago with success, but the floater didn’t budge My surgeon had hoped it would drop,
But sadly it didn't! Thanks for the advice from you and others who replied! After this Covid19 Crisis, I will pursue the right path
to get help!
