In brief: Need an eye exam
Floaters are most worrisome when new with associated flashes and loss of vision like a shade or curtain advancing.
New blurry vision not improving should be checked out.

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. Wait one year then consider surgery.
