... as to what could be causing this, unfortunately you really need to get in to see a good opthamologist. Certain things like a scratched cornea or even a detached retina can be very serious if not treated quickly. ... (1 replies)
... Thank you Cindy. They keep checking my retina and saying it looks good. They seem stumped about the light, and have run out of tests to run. It started when I got a huge floater in my eye. ... (3 replies)
... Flashing light means the gel at the back of your eye is clumping or shrivelling up. you have to keep checking with your eye doctor because as the gel clumps up it can scratch the retina which could cause problems (3 replies)

... in my right eye. I have started developing floaters as well as clouding of my new lens. I have been to my ophthalmologist several times. Each time she says my retina is fine, and schedules a time for me to come back. ... (3 replies)
... Hi--Are you nearsighted? This sounds like myopic macular degeneration. It's different from the more common macular degeneration that is caused by aging. Myopic MD can happen to much younger people in their 20s and 30s although I was diagnosed with it when I was 55 (I'm 67 now) just in my left eye. When you're severely nearsighted your retina/macula can stretch and get very... (6 replies)
... It sounds like an eye floater, protein flecks that form as our eyes age casting a shadow on the retina. These are common and generally nothing to worry about but a check by an eye doctor won't hurt. (1 replies)
... It sounds like his macula is detached (off), as that is in the middle of the eye (roughly)... and once that has detached the visual outcome isn't so good. I'm sure I read somewhere that waiting a week after the macula is off doesn't have much or any effect. The gas bubble does press the retina back in to place, so that would be why he saw better previously -- or maybe the... (10 replies)
... Thanks for the advice and support. All I know is that at the emergency the person said that the detachement is towards the middle of the retina so in his case waiting another week won't make a difference... Right now my dad doesn't see much with his eye, while during the gas bubble he saw more... ... (10 replies)
... Yeah we called a few days ago, he went to emergency, he has a detachement :( he will see his doctor in a few days as it was the holidays and the person said there's no extra danger in waiting another week :( The person at the emergency said that they usually do silicone for recurrent detachments, but we will see what the doctor saids :( i'm trying to read about silicone but...

... evaluated by a retina specialist. If I had done so, I would still be hearing "come back in 6 month" from my pervious doctor. ... (8 replies)
... seconds. My retina specialist explained the cause a few years ago, which unfortunately I don't remember. It is harmless. ... (2 replies)
... I would really be guessing as to what's causing the curvy black obstruction... that's a question for someone who has looked inside his eye to answer. It could be that he had a detachment during his last surgery (hence the bubble and the positioning) and that detachment has caused damage... not all damage can be repaired, and even if your retina is successfully re-atteched, it...

... The dilation drop for me caused slight ghosting/double vision in that eye, and difficulty focussing... it took a few hours to wear off. So by now that should be wearing off for your dad. The cataract I'm sure will be causing him issues too, and depending on how bad it is, it could be the cause of all the issues. If it was a macula-off detachment originally though then it's...

... Thanks a lot for your reply... I asked my dad for details, the first laser surgery he had many months ago was actually for a retina detachment... ... (10 replies)
... It's early days right now, so difficult to tell... you don't say whether his retina was actually detached at any point? ... (10 replies)
... adjust the retina or something to that effect... Now after 2 weeks of sleeping on his side, several eye drops with many still ongoing, etc. ... (10 replies)
... HI there; You should really go see an opthamologist, a medical doctor of the eyes- not to be confused with an optologist, who makes glasses. Things like this can be perfectly normal with aging, or they can indicate a problem such as a tear in your retina, which can be serious. You didnt have any head injuries in the past few months, did you? You werent hit in the head by... (2 replies)
... I went to a Retina specialist today and they found something called CSR or Central Serous Retinopathy. He thinks I got it from the steroid eye drops I was taking from my procedure. ... (6 replies)
... This happened 10 months ago but if I can remember it also happened when I blinked and in daylight lighted area. I didn't get in the dark or if I closed my eyes. It was also random because it didn't happen everytime I blinked. It was quick it lasted seconds. I would get it, then it would stop. I didn't have headache with mine but it caused me a lot of anxiety. I was not given... (6 replies)
... Since I just had this CXL procedure, the eye surgeon wants me to see a retina specialist just to make sure everything is good. He checked my retina when I first saw them but said everything is ok. ... (6 replies)
