"Floaters" like that (can be bubbles, spots, probably more commonly string-like or worm-like in appearance) can be a normal part of aging as the eyeball composition changes with age - but can also be an indication of retinal damage, a side effect of diabetes, indication of bleeding (especially if reddish in appearance), etc - so you should a least ask your optometrist next time you get glasses (if you use them) - but if new or significant increase in them see an optomotrist or (especially if significant sudden increase or losing peripheral vision) an opthamologist.

Here is a link from the Mayo Clinic on floaters FYI:
