Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
When did you have surgery?
Can you describe where the incisions were made?
I received a blow which caused an injury. No surgery recently.
When was the injury? What kind of object were you hit with?
It happened day before yesterday.
With a blow to the eye, there is concern for bleeding inside the eye, especially since now you are seeing black floaters.
There is also concern for a tear in the retina.
You will need an eye exam by an ophthalmologist who can dilate your eyes and carefully look inside.
Is there anything I can do before I visit a doctor? Any home remedy?
The floaters should go away on their own. The reason for the visit is to ensure that there is no problem with the retina.
If you notice a sudden increase in floaters, flashes of light (like a lightening storm, arc of light), or a shadow/veil in the periphery of your vision, this can be worrisome for a retinal detachment. You would need to contact your ophthalmologist promptly in that case.
Ok. Should I go immediately or wait for the redness/pain to subside.?
I would advise you see an ophthalmologist as soon as possible.
Ok I will do as you say.Thanks for the advice Doctor.
