      For me tinnitus started in November and just after a month later floaters started appearing. So is there any correlation between Floaters and Tinnitus? People on this forum with floaters share your views.

      I also have adies tonic pupil syndrome, super super rare mostly in women where i can make my left eye dialates on its own. So the floaters have really gotten worse but I choose to ignore them. It's weird that it's my left ear when I get T in March but I've had ATPS since September.

      I have had floaters for years befor I got t and see no difference or increase. I think peoples brains get hyper sensitive about ear noise and perhaps it carries through to vision as well.

      Bizarrely, I got some weird visual disturbance a couple weeks back I think after taking some meds for depression and anxiety all at once and doing some hard exercising all at the same time. Maybe this is a coincidence but now I notice if I go outside and look at the trees it seems like I am looking at a light rain sprinkle going on. It isn't too bad though.

      There is no way to detect a correlation between the two. All I know is my problematic floater showed up suddenly when I was 15, and I don't know when my tinnitus started, because I was doped up on antidepressants for years to help deal with the floater (0 improvement in mood), so I don't remember when during this period the T started. I think it was around the same time but I'm not sure.

      I feel like there is. I got T and floaters (never had any before and yes I was always hypervigilant and anxiety prone also before T) around the same time.

      Floaters are related to anxiety. Your brain usually ignores floaters but when you're anxious,it notices them. They've been there all your life. Sometimes you just notice them.

      I do think there is a connections as well! I did notice floaters two years before the ringing started. Although my T was caused by loud noise, but I think that something is making us neurologically prone for developing T.. and maybe this is linked to why you develop floaters as well. At least I do know some people with T and most of them have floaters. One guy has had T since his childhood and he does even have visual hallucinations... also Trobalt seemed to work for quite a few people and what were some of the side effects? Floaters.. could be coincidence, but I really feel like there is a link.
