    Yes, glaucoma will cause eye floaters because of high eye pressure and weak immune system at the eyes. In order to treat your eye floaters, you need to have the good rest at first. You could then use the eye drops with anti-inflammation to get the eyes to be clear and comfortable. You could also use the warm compress to make your eyes feel comfortable.

    Glaucoma has many symptoms but eye floaters. Glaucoma can cause cloudy cornea, dry eye and eye pain. However, it is hard to lead to eye floaters. Commonly eye floaters caused by caused by viral infections, fungal infections, or auto-immune inflammation, eye diseases, injury to eyes and Diabetic retinopathy. You can consider a surgical procedure called a vitrectomy.

    In general, glaucoma always refers to a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve, which is located in the back of eye and carries information from the eye to the brain. Well, eye floaters may be resulted from cataract, laser surgery, eye injury or eye diseases, especially when they cause inflammation like conjunctivitis. As a result, we can not deny the relationship between them if they occur at same time. What is more, only in certain types of light can benign eye floaters evolve into a trouble. I am afraid you need to learn to live with eye floaters and ignore them because they can not be eliminated based on our current medical conditions. They will go away while occur some days or months later. However, you need to go to see a optician and to ensure if you actually suffer glaucoma avoiding potentially permanent vision caused by the side effects of both.
