Has anyone ever experienced eye floaters as a reaction to gluten?

There was a thread a while back on this, sorry I can't seem to link to it from my phone. Definitely people with advice.

Can be a warning for retinal detachment among other things.

I've got them. I don't think it has anything to do with Celiac in particular. "Floaters" are bits of detached tissue floating around in your eye. If they suddenly show up, or get worse, you should see a doctor/optometrist as soon as you can, since it could be a sign of something more serious like a detached retina.

I might notice them more when I've been glutened, but then again my vision is generally less focused when I've been glutened.

It is also linked to uveitis (sp?) which can be potentially serious. Definitely a good idea to get it checked if you noticed a change.

My eye exam a couple weeks ago, my eyes has actually gotten better for the first time since I was a kid. That's not floaters though. I've had floaters for as long as I can remember, same place, same shape.

My opthalmologist (of many years) never connected gluten to my floaters either.

I have a ton of eye floaters and issues with my eyes. I don't know what could cause it really but I have read other people on this forum say they have floaters and I have suspicions and it is my opinion that celiac maybe able to cause it. It is an autoimmune disease and effects every person differently. Gluten causes the autoimmune response. Now that I have been gluten and dairy free, I can count on one hand how many floaters I have had. Before I would see them several times a day. It is only my opinion and I am no doctor, but I feel there is a connection.

If followed by headache, they could also be migraine auras.
