In brief: One Option

As a retina specialist (eye doctor specialized in the problems/diseases of both the retina and the vitreous), i believe there is only one way to remove floaters.
An outpatient procedure called a vitrectomy is the best way to remove the floaters. Laser, in my opinion, is more risky as the procedure can cause retinal tears, may not work and limited to certain floaters.
