Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
I'm here as well.
Dr. Rick are you still there?
What do you think my daughter should do?
I'm sorry I had to step away from my computer. Are yo still there?
Also, does she sleep in the contacts?
how does the eye look, is it red etc, painful....etc?
None of the above. Just hard to see with one eye blurry. She is using her glasses only.
I don't think her problem is the retina, but just for the record an optometrist doesn't know enough about the retina to even know what he doesn't know.....
can she see with the glasses?
Just the one eye.
Well, if the eye is not painful, and it is not red and, per the optometrist, is normal on slit lamp exam and she just had the problem after wearing new contacts, then I think the most likely cause of her problem is a warped cornea from a defective contact lens/wrong fit.
If this is the case things should be back to normal by the morning.
Should she return the contacts and just wear her glasses until she can make an appt. with an eye Doctor?
Ya. Do not wear those contacts anymore :) And if things aren't better by tomorrow noon I would see an ophthalmologist since this issue seems to be beyond the optometrist to diagnose and treat effectively.
Does this make sense to you?
Yes it does. That is what I told her earlier to try to make an appt. tomorrow. She doesn't have one so it might be a wait to get an appt. but we'll hope for the best. Thank you.
