I was on a forklift when the hydraulic line busted. Fluid hit me in both eyes and now I have floaters. The doctor said that they might go away in time but doesn't know how long. On a sunny day all I can see is floaters. Can I get compensated for this?

The only way you are going to find out is if you file a claim and go through the Workers Compensation process. According to the facts you present your claim should be accepted and processed accordingly.
If you are working for a company bound by the Workman’s Compensation Act and were injured on the job there should not be any reason your claim will be denied.
