In brief: Typically a few wks.

The tendrils and floaters tend to be absorbed over a period of weeks, and usually no further annoying images.
On a positive note, the occurrence of a vitreous detachment lessens chance of spontaneous retinal detachment.

In brief: See a retina special

The key here is to be seen asap if your symptoms get worse.
Cloudy vision and flashes tend to improve gradually over days/weeks.
