Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
What can you see out of that left eye? Light, shadows, newsprint?
only on the left side corner of the eye and sometimes i do see grey sometimes i do see trough shadows.
Do you have any pain?Did it happen suddenly?Have you seen any eye doctor yet?
Just saw the part that you saw an eye doctor, what reason did he give for the vision loss?
cannot read through eye when i close the right eye.i do have pain some times behind the eye, but also on my head , i mean my scalp only on my left side.No i went to the doctor because i was getting some pain in the eye and also was seeing shadow over my eye sometimes. Yes i am seeing an eye doctor now but he could not explain me how come this happen.
From what you have described, I am concerned for a condition called temporal arteritis. With that severity of vision loss, there should be some findings on your exam. I strongly recommend you seek a second opinion from an ophthalmologist.
If indeed you have temporal arteritis, you are at risk of having a similar occurrence in your left eye. If there is a high suspicion, many doctors will start you on oral steroids to lower the chance of vision loss in the good eye.
I recommend you call your eye doctor today or your primary care doctor today to discuss this possibility.
Do you have any additional questions?
Can the eye be saved or is it too late?
If it is temporal arteritis, the current eye will not likely improve.
