I have a refractive error of -5.75 in both eyes (myopia & astigmatism) and floaters in both eyes. Is a pupil dilation better than the digital retinal?

In brief: Yes

Nothing beats the chance to get a good look at the peripheral retina when there is an onset of new floaters.
Dilation is a bit of an annoying pain but is recommended in this circumstance. You are, hopefully, seeing an ophthalmologist.
