    Well, yes, high blood sugar can lead to eye floaters in your eyes. First, you should know that high blood sugar is a medical condition which is referred as hyperglycemia. And when it happens, it can lead to many symptoms, including excess food consumption, stress, infection, diabetes.

    Yes, it is possible for you to get eye floaters because of high blood sugar. The high blood sugar is not good for eyes which will have many effects on the eyes. The high blood sugar of the diabetes levels can damage blood vessels in the eyes and can lead to the growth of new blood vessels there. These new blood vessels are not as strong and can leak or burst. This condition is called diabetic retinopathy. And the eyes are so weak which will be easily dry and get the infection through the bacterium. If you get the floaters because of the high blood sugar, you'd better accept the treatment as soon as possible and keep the good habit of using eyes.
