    Well, yes, generally speaking, eye floaters can be a sign of diabetes. In many cases, eye disease caused by diabetes is often indicated initially by seeing a lot of floaters. So when you have diabetes, you will get some floaters under your eyes. as we know that floaters are basically little blobs of protein that float through the hollow sphere which is filled with a thick, gel like fluid known as the vitreous humor. So to treat the floaters, there are many ways. You should know that proper nutrition can not only prevent new eye floaters from being formed by decreasing their appearance. In this way, your eyes that will help to prevent the formation of new floaters and will also promote the eyes natural healing process which, in turn, will reduce the appearance of eye floaters. For example, you can eat as many water and vitamin rich vegetables as possible. Anyway, you can just have a try.

    No. eye floaters are small moving sports that appear in your field of vision. They usually happen to people with severe myopia. Of course that there are some people with both eye floaters and diabetes. Eye floaters can be very annoying. But eye floaters are harmless. They can come and go themselves. But if you notice that there a lot of eye floaters suddenly comes out, you shall go to see a doctor in case any serious vision problems.

    Yes, the eye floaters may be the sign of the diabetes. However, it can also be caused by the lots of use of eyes in front of the computers. The dryness of the eyes causes the eye floaters. Diabetic retinopathy is the most serious problems people with diabetes microvascular complications get. It cause cause the blindness in patients. Diabetes cause many eye complications. Lens hyperglycemia can make the lens fibers have the swelling degeneration. At the beginning, the lens in the posterior of the cortex will appear many scattered gray or snow pattern. They may even become the pitting cloudy state. The patients with late and adolescent diabetes may have the iris surface because of hypoxia. Their pupil edge places have new blood vessels. Then the iris occur red. The neovascular glaucoma some day may be accompanied by iridocyclitis. If you have the eye floaters in the eyes and are not sure whether they are serious, I suggest you to have a full check on the eyes in the hospital.

    Yes, eye floater can be a sign of diabetes. Eye floaters are caused by different reasons such as high myopic, posterior vitreous detachments, eye disease, eye injury and diabetic retinopathy. Eye floater is associated with diabetes because diabetic retinopathy is one reason for eye floaters. When you have diabetic, you not only have eye floater in your eyes but also have a blurred vision. But if eye floaters don't worse your eyesight and occur only in certain types of light, you don’t need to worry. But if not, you should see a doctor.

    I do not have diabetes but do get eye floaters, yesterday and today I got them. They make you feel weak and a little nervous about what may be causing them. I cannot get a direct answer as to what causes them. I do not get headaches often at all. My husband gets these too. What caused them, does anyone have the right answer?
