Default Floaters in Eyes after MRI/MRA/CT

Not sure what to make of it, however prior to my MRI/MRA/CT which was several weeks after my accident i have noticed floaters in my vision when i'm outside or looking at white walls. These floaters came on after my MRI/CT tests.

I never had this issue prior.

As an MRI has similar magnetic forces to that of a microwave perhaps some undisclosed side effects from the scans have an impact on vision?

Any thoughts?

Floaters often seem to appear after a concussion but in most cases, they were always there. The injured brain just does not have the filtering power to filter them out from conscious thought.

Seeing floaters is a common complaint.

I've noticed the same thing recently, only after a neuro-opthamologist asked if I noticed them. I said I didn't notice them more than usual, but afterwards it seemed I couldn't stop seeing them when I looked at the sky! Attention is a funny thing.

26 year-old PhD student in evolutionary biology, slipped on ice in Feb 2014 while clipping my fingernails and walking to save time (dumbest reason for PCS ever?). Initially just had headaches and didn't feel quite right, but a minor head bump 5 days later started a downward spiral of anxiety, depression, insomnia and fatigue. Had trouble concentrating on reading/looking at screens

April 2014 - did exertion test, passed, started exercising and doing more, but didn't feel much better.

May 2014 - Went on backpacking trip OK'd by doctor, trip itself went fine, but felt worse a few days after getting back, more difficulty concentrating, worse headaches.

June 2014 - Bumped head on ceiling walking slowly down stairs, no immediate symptoms, but caused worsening headahces, more difficulty concentrating and looking at screens. Have not felt as good as I did before this since this bump.

December 2014 - after feeling relatively better I went xc skiing and fell but didn't hit my head (something my psychologist who specializes in brain injuries told me he hoped would happen so I saw it was OK), felt worse

Feb 2015 - back in grad school, light teaching load and some research, nowhere close to operating at my full capacity. Still have constant headaches, difficulty reading/looking at screens, mild anxiety and depression, and just not feeling like my normal sharp self.

Trying, but struggling, to believe that I'll get back to my old self, or at least get close.

Default Floaters after MRI

Just had MRI of each knee and noticed a whole new crop of floaters afterwards. No brain injury or concussion of any kind.

did you also use the contrast liquid in the mri? because I think that's the reason. I have burning eyes and floaters appear the next day.
