I started seeing large number of floaters after I got a dilation test for retina checkup. - I went for my retina checkup, got my eyes dilated and then started seeing floaters Can dilation test trigger floaters? Now I have headache and I see floaters. What may be the possible cause and solution? Is it related to migraine or retina tear? -

Mostly due to retina tear.
The eye floaters will normally go away and you need not take any action dilation test will not trigger floaters and it has no definite cause and is usually seen in old age.
