Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today. I am a retina specialist.
What do you mean that you noticed a shadow over your left eye? Do you mean that you vision is blocked, as if a curtain or veil was over your vision?
Have you noticed any flashes of light or spots/bugs in your vision at all?
Are you available to chat?
has this shadow gotten larger at all?

More like a cloudy blurry vision it hasnt gottent worst and it feels irritated. i have notice a bit of flashes. When my eye was dilated the doctor didnt see any detachment.
The doctor was an ophthalmologist
Is a retinal detachment serious?
Hi Dr. Rick thank you so much for following up that is very nice of you.
The retina specialist found inflammation and swelling in my eye he prescribed Pred Forte one drop 4 times a day for 2 weeks and the following week 2 times a day. But when i went to Walgreens they gave me generic (prednisolone). He didnt see a retina detachment thank god.
I have a follow up with him in 3 weeks.
How long do you think i will see results?
Hi Dr. Rick
Sorry to bother with the same thing. I still havent seen any improvement i have been using the drops since tuesday.
I know i am getting inpatient. Does it take that long to for the cloudy vision to clear?
Hi Dr. Rick..
I hope you are having a good week.
I just wanted to let you know that i feel like my eyesight is changing before a used to feel a dark shadow over my eye but now i feel like my glasses are dirty. Can this mean that my vision is slowly recovering?
Sorry to be so impatient sometimes it gets so aggravating. Thank you so much for all your advice.
Hi Dr. RIck,
I hope u are having a good weekend.
Quick question on wednesday i go down to 2 drops per day what will happen now?
Thats good have fun!!
I still cant see a big difference. Starting wednesday i go down to 2 drops per day. What can i expect after that?
Thank you i will try to get them. From your previous experience with patients have u seen quick recovery from the inflammation?
Hi Dr. Rick, i just wanted to let you know that today i went to get my blood test results(the retina specialist wanted me to do a couple of tests) they are came back good. My doctor sent me to get a second opinion to an ophthalmologist who saw me today at 4pm and he dilated my eyes and took pics of my eye and he said that the drops seem to be working because he doesnt see inflammation and to just be patient for the blurriness to go away.
Exactly what u said give it time. Thanx for your advice and patience.
Hi Dr. Rick, i hope you had a nice thanksgiving...
Quick questions can i take a immune booster vitamin that i got from GNC while on the drops.
BTW i have been using the eye drops twice a day even thought things arent getting worst i still have the blur
I am glad you had a nice day :-)
My day was pretty good. Thank you for answering.
I hope the packs win!!
Hi Dr. Rick:
Sorry to bother with the same question/problem.
My eye is still blurry and i am starting to panic. I feel like am starting to have anxiety. When i went to get the second opinion the ophtamologist informed me once i am off the drops he was very confident that the eye would go back to how it was. Is this true?
Ok thank you soo much. I was trying to look online for information but the bit of info i found seems scary.
Hi Dr. Rick,
Did you receive my question?
