... I found your post because I am having similar symptoms. I was struck in my right eye by a ball and (immediately) had a "vitreous detachment" (according to optometrist).

I have -8.0 diopter contacts in both eyes and had been warned previously about being prone to retina... (6 replies)

... Preventative surgery as in, laser surgery? I had that done due to the same condition, bilaterally. Im 32m. Has your doctor said anything about the prognosis or outcome of this disease or condition when treated with laser? Are we really bound to get a detachment, its just a matter of time? (2 replies)
... Hi I'm sorry that I don't really know anything that can help, other than just to let you know that you are not alone in this "wait 'n" see" deal. I've been waiting since Sept. for the viterous gel in my left eye to "slid-off" my retina, but it has not and my vision is getting worse. I have saw 2 retina specialist and they have recommend that I wait and see if it will get... (11 replies)

... Corinnebeth, Thank you for your reply - that was my fear as well. I went to the eye doctor yesterday and she did a complete exam - peripheral vision test, regular vision test, and 3D imaging of the entire eye including the retinas and she said both my eyes look completely normal. She thinks I am experiencing ocular migraines, most likely set off from that coughing fit I... (2 replies)

... Thank you for the reply. I completely agree with you. I plan to go back to that hospital and insist on having my retinas examined. It's amazing to me, how lax they can be regarding a person's eyesight -and this is the "prestigious" NY Eye & Ear Infirmary. Just flooring. (6 replies)
... I am also a high myope (-10.5 contacts) and am at high risk for retinal detachment. I would be terrified if I had your symptoms and would insist on an emergency appointment with the retina specialist. My husband (long-standing type I diabetic) had retinal detachment symptoms and they made him wait almost 2 months. He is nearly blind in that eye now from waiting so long. Go to... (6 replies)
... Hi Melissa, I had the white flashes of light in my peripheral vision many (25) years ago. Also a vision in the same area like fireworks after they explode, cascading down. Real pretty but scared the bejeezus out of me. Opthomologist told me I had "vitreous detatchment", vitreous was separating from my retina, same as you were told. My head used to hurt, too, like a...

Also, I have a very noticeable, yet subtle,... (1 replies)
