I have posted on this forum before and have been advised to get help with OCD. I have done that and I thank the doctors for their advice. I just want to now get some medical advice on this issue. I request you to kindly help me with some clarity on this issue.
I had a vomiting episode 6 months ago. At the time, I was on antibiotics for a foot infection, and the vomiting was due to the excess consumption of alcohol. I was also touching a BMI of obese proportions.
When I woke up the next morning, I had a good number of floaters in both eyes and immediately got it checked.
I have been to 3 retina specialists and they have checked my eye with dilated eye exam and said that retina is fine. I have no lattice, myopia of minus 2.75, and nothing abnormal except the sudden emergence of new floaters.
I just want to understand why the floaters came. A combination of antibiotics, alcohol,vomiting and obesity?
I have quit drinking and i am no longer obese.
Am I at a higher risk of retinal detachment now? I have learnt to live with the floaters. What I want to know is if I should be more worried than the average person of a retinal detachment. I have never had eye trauma.
Can vomiting cause retinal detachment in an otherwise normal eye?
