Possibly: Floaters come from vitreous debris or blood floating within the fluid of the interior of the eye. The more serious the injury to the eye, the more likely it will be that blood, retinal, or vitreous debris will be released within the eye. Any sudden increase in floaters should be evaluated promptly by an ophthalmologist to check for retinal detachment before the central vision is lost.
