Could make them seem more noticeable, just as stress can seem to worsen any annoyance.

In brief: Yes

During stressful episodes, floaters can appear more prominent.
However, this may not represent and permanent change or dangerous condition. After proper rest, if the floaters persist they should be evaluated an trained eyecare professional for any possible change in medical condition of the eyes.
