    Yes, it is possible for you to get eye floaters because of mold. As we know, the eye floaters may be easily got because of the invisible bacterium which contains in the mold. If you want to reduce the eye floaters, you could use the eyes drops with anti-inflammation to clear the bacterium. You could also use the warm compress to make your eyes feel comfortable.

    Eye floaters are small spots that appear in your field of vision. You can notice it when you look at something bright. Eye floaters can be caused by many problems, such as eye disease, eye injury, eye tumors, retinal tear and mold also can cause eye floaters. It's not a serious problem if you have a few eye floaters that don't change over times. But if the eye floaters cause some vision problem or cause pain, you'd better see a doctor immediately.

    In fact, we are exposed to mold every day by touching or breathing. That because molds are exist outdoors and indoors. And the reaction are different from each person because it depend on how much a person is exposed to. But till now, i never find any proves that mold can lead to eye floaters. But mold do affect our eyes. It may cause watery eyes, eye infection and eye allergies. Besides, Some people even experience runny nose, sneezing, nasal and congestion etc.

    Exposing too much to mold can cause you eye irritation, headaches, sore throat and some other symptoms. There is no direct connection between mold exposure and eye floaters. Eye floaters are very common in people's eyes. I have floaters in my eyes too. Usually, Eye floaters will stay in your eyes for a long time, they are harmless, try ignore them. If the floaters have affected your vision, you need to see your doctor to find out the causes. There are different causes which lead to eye floaters, some kind floaters can be reduced, and some are not. Some times a dietary change can help to reduce floaters. Reduce your stress if you are stressful. Medical surgery can get out the floaters effectively, but you need to get your doctor's permission. Anyway, if the floaters are little and cause no much inconvenience, you’d better learn to live with them. Good luck!
