    Well, I have to say yes. Generally speaking, in some degree, anemia can lead to eye floaters. As we know that anemia is a common blood disorder. So the anemia has some relationship with the red blood cell. In other words, if your body does not have enough red blood cells, anemia may occur. At that situation, it makes affect your eyes. According to some experts, it can lead to dark circles, itchy eyes, even eye floaters. So it can be normal for you to have eye floaters because of anemia. So you should go and see the doctor as soon as possible.

    There is no denying that anemia can cause the eye floaters. Eye floaters are caused by the turbid vitreous body of the eye. There are two kinds of eye floaters, one is physiologic eye floater and the other one is pathologic eye floater. It is common that myopes and the aged get the physiologic eye floaters while the pathologic eye floaters can be caused by fundus hemorrhage, ocular conjunctiva inflammation and broken retina, so I advise you to go to the hospital for an thorough examination. In your daily diets, you should supplement sufficient vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin B, you can absorb these vitamins from livers, eggs, beans, meat, mushroom, fresh vegetables and fruits. Do not smoke and control the consumption of the caffeinated drinks and alcohol.

    Yes, your anemia may cause the eye floaters in your eyes. As we know, people with anemia will have the weak constitution. At the same time, you will find that you will have the headache often because of the not good blood circulation. The immune system will be weak, too. Your eye nerves will be affected. The eyes will easily be tired after some use in front of the computers or the tv. You may get the tiredness in the eyes. And the eyes will be dry because of the bad excretion in the eyes at night because of the bad constitution. That is why you cause the eye floaters. However, there are many other reasons that could cause your eye floaters. You may sit in front of the computers for a long time with no rest. Or your eyes may get the invisible bacterium in the dirty environment. Thus, you'd better go to see the doctor and have a full check on the eyes.

    I have floaters so I have been researching it lately. I just read somewhere that anemia can cause floaters. I've just started taking iron pills for that, so it could very well be the cause. I wonder about the possible connection to hypothyroidism, though, as the floaters and thyroid symptoms all came on at about the same time for me.
