In brief: Eye doctor

Any new-onset or increased amount of floaters should be evaluated by an eye doctor immediately.
Optometrists, general ophthalmologists and retina specialists can all dilate your eyes and look for evidence of retinal holes, tears or detachments, but a retinal specialist is the most qualified to treat it. See an eye doctor today!

In brief: Floaters

It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment.
This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. Retina specialist or ophthalmologist.
