    Lots of Eye Floaters After Being Sick!

    I have been plagued with tons of eye floaters in both eyes for over a year!

    Back in early November 2017 I got bronchitis from a classmate and about a month after in December it developed into sinusitis.
    I was getting headaches, my tinnitus was getting worse than usual and my eyes felt like they were going to burst out of my head.
    I went to the doctor and got an antibiotic (which did nothing) and then waited about a month for it to finally go away which was in January of 2018.
    Thats when I started to notice the floaters. My right eye is by far more worse than my left, these floaters in my right eye make me miserable especially in white lights, they're gigantic and when I move my eyes they just throw them selves everywhere, when I squint I see even more of them!

    I did end up going to a optometrist in May and I had imaging and a vision exam done. 20/20 vision, no peripheral vision problems and my retinas looked completely fine. He took a flash light and tried to look into may eye and said he could not see anything.

    Now I'm wondering if it could be my sinuses somehow messing with my eyesight because I have been plagued with sinus problems since I broke my nose back when I was 11. I'm 22 by the way. I get headaches about 2 times a week. And now my headaches are typically behind my right eye where the floaters are the worst.

    Has anyone else ever suffered from something like this?
