Cannot see what is on the screen. Was bombarded with "floaters". How do I get rid of them?

In brief: Floaters cause

Floaters arise when the vitreous gel inside the eye liquefies naturally with age and sometimes earlier in life due to trauma, inflammation, or even high myopia.
A burst of new floaters may be a warning sign for retinal detachment. Get a dilated retinal exam. Discuss treatment options with a retina specialist.

In brief: See eye doctor ASAP

A sudden shower of floaters may indicate a retinal detachment - see an eye doctor immediately.
