Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Can you chat?
JACUSTOMER-q5ae131x- :

yes

Doctor DanB : Can you distinguish between not being able to see anything out of the eye and possibly mild blurry vision?
JACUSTOMER-q5ae131x- :

he says everythibg

JACUSTOMER-q5ae131x- :

is blurry and can't see well been an hour and not better

JACUSTOMER-q5ae131x- :

are you still there?

Doctor DanB : Yes um still here.
JACUSTOMER-q5ae131x- :

are you coming back

Doctor DanB :

I'm sorry I'm having technical difficulties with this chat window.

Doctor DanB :

Does blurry mean he can't see the hand in front of his face, or just can't read street signs as well?

JACUSTOMER-q5ae131x- :

cant see in front of his hand

Doctor DanB :

This sounds like it's more serious than a pink eye, then.

Doctor DanB :

I suspect that he may have a hemorrhage in his eye.

JACUSTOMER-q5ae131x- :

I'm taking him to emerg. how does henmorrhage start

JACUSTOMER-q5ae131x- :

and what do they day to fix it.

Doctor DanB :

It is fairly common in diabetics. IF there is a hemorrhage in the eye, he would need to be still with his activity, sleep with the head of his bed elevated, but he may need medicine if the pressure in the eye is elevated.

JACUSTOMER-q5ae131x- :

ok thank you for helping me
