In brief: Floaters

Not usually, astigmatism is a refractive error resulting from the shape of your cornea (window to the eye).
Floaters are typically in the back of the eye in the vitreous cavity. Floaters should be monitored by an eye care provider as these could be an early sign of retinal detachment. The risk is low but a detailed eye exam is always recommended in pts with floaters.
