What can I do about eye trauma resulting in floater?

Seek medical help: Especially if you have a visual field cut (a region of your vision in one eye that has loss of vision). Traumatic retinal detachment can occur. The most common eye injury is a corneal abrasion. Very painful, but usually not associated with floaters.
