- you can drop some unused indexes
- do an index defragmentation

you must have created plenty of (eventually unusable) indexes.
you need to double-check each of the indexes if it is really used, and if not, drop it.

note: if the indexes graph includes the clustered indexes, those are actually containing the data of the table itself also...
