Laser surgery and "floaters" in your vision

I have dozens of floaters in both eyes, which has worsened over the years (I am 44). Do any of the new laser treatments reduce/minimize floaters, while also correcting vision?

Unfortunately, neither laser surgery, nor medications are able to reduce or eliminate floaters. Floaters are a condensation of the clear gel in the back of the eye. All of the laser procedures for vision reshape the cornea in the front of the eye.
