Re: Can sinus issues cause eye problems?

Sinuses can definitely cause eye issues! If your ophthalmologist isn't open to that (because mine sure wasn't), consult an ENT (ear, nose, throat Dr.). There is definitely a connection. Two sinuses sit adjacent to your optic nerve(s). I too get that pressure and have to squeeze the same spot on the bridge of my nose.

Floaters are a retinal thing. Most are normal but of course mention it to your eye dr. and ask about it. They are supposed to clear up after some time but I have permanent ones too that really mess with my vision. I am turning 40 too and my eyesight is atrocious.

Good luck with everything!
