    Yes, it is possible to cause eye floaters because of high cholesterol. The cholesterol can be divided into high density cholesterol and low density cholesterol, with the former one has the protective effect on cardiovascular and the latter is on the adverse side. With the cholesterol, there exists the risk of coronary heart disease which will happen increasingly. The formal one could be called the good cholesterol. And the bad cholesterol in the blood contains the cholesterol content per unit of about 140 mg which will cause your body immune system work in disorder. Your eyes will get the indirect effluence, too. It is the dryness of the eyes that causes the eye floaters in the eyes. You could eat the food with light character. You'd better not drink or smoke which could make the situation of your body worse.
