Not Sure: Floaters and headaches could be related. What type of prednisone, e.g. Oral? And for what reason? Floaters and headache may be caused by severe inflammation inside the eye. Can't diagnose digitally. Get an exam.

Eye floaters: Are common, and don't denote serious eye condition, however it is worth seeing an ophthalmologist for a routine check, wish you well and good luck
