... this has nothing to do with any bad thing with your eyes or retina, it's totally normal to see floaters when looking at bright light! don't panic over nothing (2 replies)
... I am a teen and -3.00 glasses power I have floaters that had clumped together. They look thick. When I look at a light, these clumped floaters create a reflection of the light. It only occurs when I look at a very bright light (sunlight). It is usually on and off. My eyes were only checked with a slit lamp but I think that isn't enough for me. Also when I look at a canfle,... (2 replies)
... I am extremely near sighted - 750 right eye, 650 left. I first started seeing an increase in floaters and then the bright arc started in my left eye. Then I stared seeing flashes of lights in both eyes. I see them all the time. I see them less when I ignore them. I know that is hard to do, but for me it is the only way to cope with it. I am 58, as you grow older the fluid in... (5 replies)

... I've had this too for the last 3 years. Been to 4 different opthamologist thinking something was wrong with my retina. They just say my retina is ok and that the light is caused from pulling. The more you think about it, the more you will see it. Took me months to calm down and ignore it. ... (5 replies)
... ars. This is following an eye injury I had in 2007. I am highly myopic and have been to 4 different retinal specialists in Denver. None can see a problem with my retina and say it's vitreous traction or retinal traction. One doctor saw scarring but that's it. Otherwise they say my retina is healthy.I am losing my mind over this. ... (5 replies)

... Hi Laura, Thanks for recounting your personal eye journey. And, hope that your retinas stay put! It just helps to open up sometimes as patients, and we know more and more about these things as each of us goes along in his/her journey in life, and we appreciate better and better the vision we have, whatever it may be, and the eye surgeons who, I think, are really god-sent. ...

... I was 38 when my retina 1st detached. I did not know I had ROP until I was 32. ... (10 replies)
... Also, it is sad to know that your scleral buckling damaged your sclera, and, hence, it had to be removed. Hope your retina stays put now with the silicone oil. All the best! ... (10 replies)
... My right eye's retina detached in 2011, this was triggered due to my retinopathy of prematurity. ... (10 replies)
... Hey, thanks, for the info regarding the relative "non-criticality" of vitrectomy sx for macular RD, and the number of days required for the bubble to go away depending on the type of gas. Although I also had done a lot of reading on the web regarding this RD condition and the surgeries, this info was new to me. Good, your surgeon also seems to have very good credentials; the...

... surgery should be done quickly, usually the same day. This is necessary to prevent further detachment of the retina and to increase the chance of preserving good vision. ... (10 replies)
... I didn't know that one can wait this long after macular RD - I have always read that time is very critical. It's slightly strange that your air bubble hasn't completely gone away after 6 weeks. As a point of reference for the air bubble to go away completely, my right eye, with peripheral RD, took about 14-15 days , and the worse left eye, with macular RD, took full 3... (10 replies)
... as sitting at the PC looking at the images the machine had just taken. He told me that he was fearful that perhaps a membrane was growing over the center of the retina pulling on it slightly, wrinkling it and causing the distorted vision. ... (10 replies)

... Hello, forgive me if this post is a little bit long, but I am hoping to hear from persons who have undergone similar surgeries for a similar disorder. I underwent a vitrectomy/scleral buckling on April 18, 2014 for a macula off retinal detachment in my right eye. I do not know precisely how long the retina was actually detached before surgery; there had been subtle changes in... (10 replies)
... ve with it. Supposedly it will fade a bit in time. The whole process took about six months. I visited an ophthalmologist who gave me a thorough exam and said the retina was normal and told me what to expect. ... (1 replies)
... solution, then it's possible to see some visual blurriness, I guess. But that is very different than what I was saying earlier about the cause of waviness due to retina not being perfectly smooth or flat. ... (24 replies)
... LynnAT, One more thing my doctor suggested to get quicker results: Pencil eye exercise. You hold a pencil at arms length, focus on its tip for a while with both eyes, and then see far away; then come back to the pencil tip, and far again. Do this 10-12 times in one setting, and then repeat it 3-4 times a day. This trains your brain to fuse the two displaced images from the... (24 replies)
... Hi LynnAT, I have gone through vitrectomy for both eyes, as well as cataract sx 11 years before that for both eyes. Waviness in the vision after vit op is a common issue, and PATIENCE is the only answer :| It also depends on what type of retinal detachment (RD) you had before the vit op: my right eye had "peripheral" RD and it wasn't an issue, but my left eye had "macular"...
