In brief: Surgery possible
If the floater is long-standing and in center of vision, surgery is possible to remove it.
There is no other 'cure'.

In brief: Floaters
Most common it is recommended to have an immediate exam when they first occur to rule out retinal tears or detachment.
If there is only floaters, then wait a year and if they are still symptomatic then consider a vitrectomy to remove the vitreous and floaters.
