Better options exist: Often, Tobramycin is used as an a eye drop to help the process. The "dex" form is a steroid & should generally be reserved for situations involving local inflammation. Also, ointments should generally be avoided since they can further block the pores of the blocked glands which led to the problem in the first place! If symptoms are not improving then see your eye MD for more options available.

Depends, See Eye MD: Although many floaters are benign, a new onset of larger or "different" floaters especially if accompanied by any light flashes or changes in vision can be a warning for retinal problems. Make sure not to rub the eye(s) and avoid any vigorous shaking of the head & eyes while arranging to see your eye MD. If the retina is involved, time is essential so don't put this off!

Welcome 2 Presbyopia: In the early stages of presbyopia, a decrease in the near focusing ability of the eyes, you can compensate and get by with increased illumination and holding your target back farther from you. With time, however, the arms won't be long enough and you will need either basic reading glasses (use the lowest power you can get by with) or prescription glasses which may be best as bifocals or blended.
