Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Are you available to chat?
Is your right eye affected at all?
Did your vision return to normal after the crescent moon thing, the inability to read and now the water moving vision or has it been bad since things started?
It has been bad since it started.
Ok. Do you take any medications or have any medical problems, or any drug use? Does the eye look normal?
The eye looks normal. I am taking Abilify 25 mg for bipolar.
One more question....sorry about all of them....was the crescent thing in the center of your vision or off to the side?
On the bottom.
Any flashes of light or spots floating in your vision?
Yes there was, when it was still like a crescent moon.
And now the vision is bad in that eye, your can't read anything and the eyeball, when you look at in the mirror looks pretty much normal?
Yes it looks normal, but I can't read nor see a person stood in front of me. Now my vision is "better" though it's still very blurry.
Ok. Well, I think I can, finally, stop asking questions :o)
The most worrisome thing that comes to mind in your case is a retinal detachment in progress.
So that's what I thought. What I can do to prevent it getting worse?
You have had a significant vision loss and the way it has progresses suggests that a portion of your retina detached when you were seeing the flashes and it has now progressed toward the center of your retina, called the macula.
Why I could see a little bit better now?
There is nothing you can do at home. You really need to call then closest ophthalmologist to you and get in to see then right away. I am sure who ever you call will get you in immediately when you call.
I have an appointment with an opthalmologist now. So thank you and good bye.
The vision will wax and wane a little as the fluid shifts behind the detached retina. Even if it doesn't turn out to be a detached retina you really must be examined by an eye surgeon right now.
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)
