Can Botox Cause Floaters in the Eye?

Doctor Answers 1

Bo-tox and floaters

Bo-tox does not cause floaters in the eyes.   There is a substance behind the color of the eye called vitreous and when it liquefies, during a normal aging process vitreous floaters occur.   When light comes in the eye, it casts a shadow on the image.  If you have associated flashing lights, this could be a pulling and you should see an ophthalmologist.
