Thanks for the information. I don't have joint swelling at all. Just joint popping which the doctor said was due to aging. I've had my eyes dialated twice and in both cases (one with an optometrist and one with a opthamologist) I was told everything looked fine and that my floaters was due to aging as well. The MD did a very thorough examThe reason I made the connection was that hyaluronic acid seems to be involved in both cases so I was curious if there is a connection.
If you don't mind me asking, why would joint inflammation be a cause of concerns for floaters...?
I would recommend that you seek the care of an eyeMD to determine whether you might have inflammation in your eyes. The onset of joint swelling and floaters is of concern.
