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.
