Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. I'm here to help you with your concerns.
Have you sought out your ophthalmologist for his/her opinion as to the cause of the blurry spot in the center of that eye?
I can tell by the website's indications that you are here and probably chatting with me but I cannot see your responses so I am going to switch over to a Q&A format which usually solves this. Despite what you read, I am still here and ready to help you.
You hit the accept button a bit prematurely, but I am still here to help answer your questions.
Hi. I had initially asked you a question, but maybe you were not able to see it before, so I will repeat it:
Some of the most likely suspects to be causing something like this in a person who has had a retinal detachment repaired is either:
A. a vitreous (jelly in back of the eye) hemorrhage or vitreous floater obscuring the view: this would be accompanied by this "spot" where you're not seeing so well intermittently moving when you move your eyes but then catching back up to the previous spot.
B. This may be from swelling in the retina: when the center of the retina collects fluid it can cause symptoms like this.
Additionally, it is possible a cataract has started forming and is causing a focal area where you're not seeing very well.
Unfortunately, aside from knowing whether this spot moves with your eye movements or stays in the same place all the time, there isn't much more that we can do together to ferret this out because you need to have your eyes examined.
I would recommend that you make an appointment to see your ophthalmologist as soon as you are able.
Unlikely, but still possible, is that the retina is starting to detach again; this is unlikely because the vision overall would start to be significantly worse and not just be limited to a spot in the center of the vision.
Does this information help address your concerns? Does this make sense? Do you have any other concerns that I haven't addressed?
I am happy to be able to help you today. I will also be happy to answer any other questions until you have the information you need.
This does not end our conversation, however-we can continue to discuss any of your concerns without further charges until you are satisfied.
Any positive feedback and/or bonus you may feel prompted to provide would be welcomed and is appreciated. Thanks for your inquiry!
