Hello rrlanning. Thanks for visiting healthcaremagic.com. Floaters
are a concern in anyone and especially in a diabetic after a possible traumatic event (the straining). I would advise that you go see an ophthamologist as soon as you can, if you already have a working relationship with an ophthamologist they would hopefully be able to see you tomorrow.
If you get severe pain
in your eye or other symptoms overnight, I would advise going to the emergency room for evaluation as this could be an emergent condition.
Be well, Dr. Kimberly
