From your description, it sounds like your optometrist though it was a central serous retinopathy, or CSR.
However, you eyes would need to be dilated to accurately diagnose this.
A CSR is similar to a blister or fluid filled pocket in the back of the retina.
What is that
Often times, these will resolve on their own. In cases where it does not resolve or happens many times, then treatment is available to make it go away faster.
You should be seen by an ophthalmologist and have your eyes dilated.
He said my eye had swollen and the light would not reflect off of it in the right way
Ok I will
