Can having high blood sugar cause eye floaters?

Can having high blood sugar cause eye floaters?

Possibly: Floaters are usually a natural condition that occurs as the gel that fills the back of the eye forms cracks over time. High blood sugar can lead to damage, abnormal blood vessel growth, and breaks in the small blood vessels in the back of the eye, which can in turn cause bleeding in the eye. You may experience this as floaters. An eye doctor can quickly determine the cause of your floaters. ...Read more

Blood Sugar (Definition)

The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. The body naturally tightly regulates blood glucose levels as a part of metabolic homeostasis. Glucose is the primary source of energy for the body's cells, and blood lipids (in the form of fats and oils) are primarily ...Read more

Is there a correlation between eye floaters and blood pressure?

Is there a correlation between eye floaters and blood pressure?

No: Blood pressure can most definitely impact the health of the eye. Most commonly we see changes in the blood vessels in the back of the eye. These can lead to blockages or obstructions of blood flow that lead to visual loss. Floaters on the other hand are a harmless (though annoying) consequence of the natural aging process of the eye most of the time. ...Read more

Can i still have pre eclampsia with no protein in urine and blood pressure is normal. The only symptom I have is eye floaters.?

Can i still have pre eclampsia with no protein in urine and blood pressure is normal. The only symptom I have is eye floaters.?

Not really.: "preeclampsia is defined as high blood pressure and excess protein in the urine after 20 weeks of pregnancy in a woman who previously had normal blood pressure. Even a slight increase in blood pressure may be a sign of preeclampsia. Left untreated, preeclampsia can lead to serious — even fatal — complications..." according to the mayoclinic.Com. I agree. Floaters are unrelated totally. ...Read more

Vitreous floater: You most probably have a vitreous floater. The clear gel that fills eyeball is normally attached to all parts of the inside of the eye. As we get older it can become more liquid (watery) and detaches from the back of the retina causing your "dirt" floater. This can also reult in a retinal tear or detachment you should see your eye doctor to check the retina for this or hemorrhage (blood). ...Read more

Had STD testing (blood draw) done for HIV which was "non reactive".  I have eye floaters and lately white rings/ coated tongue. What is going on?

Vitreous detachment: Floaters are usually secondary to vitreous detachment from the retina. This is a normal aging process and it can start as early as teens in a highly nearsighted person to into the 60's. But when you first notice it u need to see an eye md to make sure there are no retinal tears. Your mouth lesions may be candida and from a lot of stress and not necessarily HIV related. See your primary md. ...Read more

For years I've ad floaters in my eyes but some times it feels I've got pressure in them and they hurt to touch plus I have blood in my nose every day ?

See ophthalmologist: The vitreous humor is the gel like substance that makes up the posterior chamber of the eye which is behind the lens. As individuals age the gel consistency liquifies in the center. Small pieces of the gel vitreous can break off and float in the liquid center. You should see an ophthalmologist as soon as possible because of the discomfort in your eyes. You may be having a vitreous detachment. ...Read more

Eye floaters and flashing lights, can the lights cause you to have floaters?

Eye floaters and flashing lights, can the lights cause you to have floaters?

Vitreous detachment: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. Wait one year then consider surgery. ...Read more

How does glaucoma cause eye floaters?

How does glaucoma cause eye floaters?

It does not cause it: Just like within the body there are many parts, although one organ, the eye is very similar with many parts as well. Where floaters occur in the eye is separate from the area where the effects of glaucoma occur, which is the optic nerve. Floaters are typically black spots that appear real like gnats in front of you. Vision loss from glaucoma is like dark patches in vision that don't go away. ...Read more

Can looking at a laptop for too long cause eye floaters?

Can looking at a laptop for too long cause eye floaters?

No: But the contrast of the monitor can bring out your pre-existing floaters and make them more obvious. If your floaters are truly new, however, you must get a dilated retinal exam. Looking at a laptop too long can cause worse dry eye since your blink rate during computer work is less. ...Read more

Can a lattice degeneration by itself (and not associated with any tear or hole) cause or worsen eye floaters?

Can a lattice degeneration by itself (and not associated with any tear or hole) cause or worsen eye floaters?

Lattice degeneration: Hi. Lattice degeneration is not due to the floaters. Rather, lattice occurs in areas where the retina and vitreous come together "more strongly" than other areas. The retina in these areas can be thinner, sometimes with holes, tears, or even retinal detachment. Increase in floaters or flashes means that the vitreous in your eye is changing; may be tugging on the retina. See an ophthalmologist ...Read more
