Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Are you there?
yes, now I am
While I cannot comment on exactly what you were seeing before regarding a football-shaped shadow (perhaps this was contour associated with the buckle), but a new shadow with flashing along the edge of it is very likely a sign that the retina could be detaching again. The other possibility is that this could be a migraine, but even if you have a history of migraines, this is still too important a diagnosis to miss. I would recommend going in to see your surgeon as soon as you can.
I am waiting for their office to open but does this mean more surgery if that is happening?
If this is detaching, then very possibly, yes, it does.
Do you have any other questions or concerns I can help you with?
I would like a referral to an opthamologist (retina specialist) in the Seattle are if possible
