Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question.
Dan, with the sudden onset of several new floaters and this visual field defect in your eye which has had prior surgery, I would not wait until Monday. I would recommend that you call your ophthalmologist's office now and speak to the on-call doctor; this does sound suspicious for a retinal detachment. You are even at more risk if there is a family history of retinal detachments or you are highly myopic (nearsighted), at least prior to your cataract surgery anyway.
Does this make sense and does that help address your concerns?
