If its soley an uncomplicated PVD, there is no reason to stay away from ophthalmology. Floaters are all too common. Once the PVD is fully evolved (~ 3 months from onset of symptoms) ones' risk for complications such as a retinal tear, hemorrhage, mac pucker drops to almost nil and your floaters are not likely to change significantly unless new unrelated problems arise.
Stereopsis is the most important with best corrected visual acuity of 20/20.
So how did you get a PVD in the first place at such a young age? Trauma?
