Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
How large is this clear shape? Is it like a half moon thing kinda waving in the breeze?
Have you noticed and flashes of light or "bugs" floating around in your vision?
Also, how is the vision in the affected eye?
like a half moon. no bugs or light flashes. one or two squiggly lines within the half moon shape off to the left when the eye is still and the shape slides down. My vision is about the same. The eye feels like it has something in it but not like an eyelash or piece of dirt. It just feels different.
How is your vision?
ooops...got it "about the same"
Well, the biggest worry with the symptoms you are experiencing is that you are currently undergoing a retinal detachment. If this is the case, and since your vision is still relatively unaffected that tells me that your macula --the very important part of your retina used for all of your usual visual tasks -- is still intact.
It is ok. It acts like the lens is moving.
what should i do?
As a retina specialist I consider this an ocular emergency. The sooner you are examined by an ophthalmologist, the better. Going to the ER will ONLY be of value if they have an eye surgeon on call who can come in and examine you right away. A regular ER doc does not have the training or the equipment to deal with this issue.
On your way in to be examined, do not eat or drink anything.
Does this make sense?
The botXXXXX XXXXXne? You need to be evaluated by an ophthalmologist right now.
yes. the nearest facility that may have a ophthalmolgist is 100 miles away so i'd better get going. Thanks so much for you help.
Give them a call. If you have a chance,drop me a note and let me know how things turn out.
