can cold air, air conditioning effect the conditon

Hi I work in an office where the air conditioning is icy cold and shoots down on my head and eyes. I get realy bad pains in my eyes due to this and would like to know if this can make my bilateral posterior vitreous detachment with floaters worse, can this be detrimental and could it cause blindness?

It really has no bearing on the posterior vitreous detachment but will terribly affect our dry eyes.  Move your desk and aggressively manage your dry eyes.
