Hello, Welcome to Just Answer
Are you available for chat now?
In which eye is the straight line visible?
Is it more like a floater? Does the line remain fixed in his vision or does it move as the eye moves?
Apart from this line, any other eye symptom such as reduced vision/flash of light?
Could you please reply to these queries as it would help to give an appropriate answer? Are you there?
yes right eye,not a floater, no it moves as you move eye left to right , bump travels along the line,no other symptoms
Have you finished your answer?
A sudden onset of distorted vision especially in a diabetic individual raises a suspicion of a maculopathy. It needs to be confirmed by some eye tests such as fundus exam( dilated pupil exam) to view the retina and macula( most important seeing area of the retina), fluorescein angiography( a kind of dye test which helps to detect the exact cause for the distorted vision). Once confirmed, diabetic maculopathy can be treated with grid green laser treatment.
Is this condition consistent with fluid under the retina?
Yes it is also referred as fluid under the retina.
It is usually a kind of macular edema.
It is an emergency situation?
No, but early intervention is better for an early recovery( but not a condition to rush to the ER).
Can you recommend an opthomologist in the Frederick area who specializes in this condition
I'll check out in a few minutes.
Are these all of the referrals?
You are terrific
In the search there are many other ophthalmologists but they are of other sub-specialisties.
I've sent across only those who are well verse in all sub-specialities ( comprehensive ophthalmology). As your condition is more of medical retina with treatment with lasers probably, one of them can help. If not , you will be referred to a retina specialist( but none found near your place).
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX referrals and your answers. I am much more comfortable about his condition after chatting with you. Have a nice weekend and a Joyous Holiday....
