I was bombarded with "floaters". What can I do to get rid of them?

See below. You must see an eye doctor right away if you have new or worse floaters as this could indicate a serious problem like a retinal tear or detachment. You really can't get rid of them, though sometimes they can improve over time depending on the cause.
Give it time. Most floaters clear with time. See an eye doctor as soon as possible. If your floaters don't go away within a few months, and are a constant bother, there are surgeons who can remove them. These surgeons are called retina specialists. Www.2020vision. Com/floaters. Html.
