Well there is a surgery to remove floaters called a vitrectomy (this type surgery is also used for other eye conditions). The problem with having a vitrectomy for the removal of floaters is for one, floaters are harmless and the risks of this type of surgery are pretty significant. Also, you tend to still have floaters even after the surgery just from the surgery itself. Our brains have a way of “ignoring” the floaters after awhile but that does not mean they go away and we tend to notice them more in bright lights and in a white room or looking at a white piece of paper.
Maybe someday something better will come along but for now the options are not very appealing.
