can dry eyes cause floaters? can dry eyes cause even mild eye inflamation?
last year my eyes felt inflamed and were very itchy and felt hot, i was suffering form this for a few months till it just got very bad, tried allergic eye treatments, the eye md finally gave me some steroid drops whic after a week my eyes didnt seem inflamed anymore, i still get the slight red eyes, more blood vessels i the whites, but i also have got alot of floaters in my eyes, which the eye md had seen too, they were not there before as the eye md didnt see them befire, i believe i have seen floaters before in my life, there are more, i have noticed if i ignore them they do lessen, but my question is,
can dry eyes cause floaters?
or maybe i id hae some kind of allergic eye, inflamation that has caused thee flaers to appear?
i havent seen anywhere a link between dry eyes and floaters
i have heard eye inflamation can cause floaters,
so can dry eyes cause eye inflamation of some kind?
theres a contradiction here, i have read and you will probably agree that eye inflamation can also cause floaters... so in this case dry eyes causing inflamation of the eye can possibly lead to eye floaters?
tear debris? do they appear like floaters? how can one distiguish between this and eyefloaters?
Inflammation in inner regions of eye can cause floater's like in the case of uveitis, but dry eye syndrome alone will not cause any inflammation to inner regions of eye & will only affect the outer part of eye like corneal regions that too in severe form of dry eye.
Some antibiotics & steroids used for reducing eye inflammations (both outer & inner), or for other use can cause eye floater's, but in this case the triggering agent is medication not the dry eye.
tear debris respond to blinking but floater's respond only to eye movements like when you look up, down etc no to simple blinking of eye lids.
