In brief: Possibly

Vomiting increases the venous pressure in the head and eyes as well.
If there is some weakness of the vessels, they can break open and leak blood. When the blood disperses in the vitreous, it can cause the sensation of floaters. Since these symptoms cross over with retinal detachment, this should be evaluated by a retinal specialist.
