My eye sight left 1.25 right 1.5 (only for reading). Sometime I feel little net/gel feeling in eye. I just rub for a second and it goes away, whereas I keep my eyes quite clean. Also, (which is now permanent) feel lot of flying particles. Can there flying particles be removed or go???

this may be due to dryness
you can 1. Blink a lot
2. Wash eyes with fresh water
3. Cold compresses
4. Use lubricating eye drop like flogel
regarding flying particles:
in eye we have 2 segments: anterior and posterior.
In posterior segment we have a gel called vitreous
this vitreous is made of collagen fibres.
In some people, these collagen fibres gets meshed up and they start floating in vitreous gel
when light enters the eye, these meshed collagen fibres cast a shadow on retina which is seen as floaters by patient. There is no treatment for this
just avoid seeing them
these are entirely normal
consult ophthalmologist if these suddenly increase in number
This is a provisional diagnosis. Consult your ophthalmologist for detailed examination.
