    People are easy to see eye floaters after serious disease. So it is possible that people after a stroke might see eye floaters. Eye floaters are annoying but normally speaking, they don't impact the vision. The most common cause of eye floaters is age. As aging, some clump formed in the vitreous of eyes, which gives the eye floater. It is obviously noticeable when people are depressed or under stress. Usually you don't have to take any medication to treat eye floaters. Try to get your attention onto something else, then they are not so apparent. Some possible causes linked to eye floaters include retinal detachment, retinal tear and bleeding in eyes. I think if your symptom is serious accompanied with some other vision symptoms such as peripheral vision loss, you should go to eye specialist for detailed examination. A stroke might cause impairment of vision, talking, walking and understanding. If your vision problems are indeed caused by a stroke, you can try acupuncture which is much recommended as safe and effective treatment to a stroke. Have enough vitamins in your diet, which are very good to eyes. Seafood is rich in zinc and selenium, which can help relieve eye strain and prevent vision problems from worsening. Stay away from caffeine and smoking.
