Hi,I have recently suffered eye muscle strain (due to straining eye too far in one direction severely & repetitively- very stupid I know). I already have eye floaters. My question is; can this eye strain cause further eye floaters? Or damage the eye that new eye floaters will appear? I'm very concerned with looking after the health of my eye after series of problems and stress it has caused. Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thank you.
I really don't see a connection between eye strain and floaters. If you were pushing your eyes in very difficult directions on purpose, I suppose it might create torsional stress on the the eye from contracting eye muscles and could in theory cause stresses on the vitreous body and cause possible new floater. Just speculation.
