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.

A 47-year-old member asked:

Do you get more eye floaters from serious eye trauma?

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.
