Thanks for your Question
 
Ghost images occur due to refractive errors. You said that no ghost images occur when u wear glasses, which means that you should wear eyeglasses to correct your myopia.

Dry eyes can be treated with artificial tears. Eye floaters should be examined with dilated fundus examination to rule out any retinal holes, breaks, inflammation and so on. Most of the time, eye floaters are non significant with no pathological causes.
