Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
I am glad to hear that you contacted your ophthalmologist as it is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your eyes.
Your symptoms have nothing to do with your corneas so there is nothing to fear along those lines.
We have been experiencing problems with the chat system for the last few days. Our engineers are working on it. However, I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
So, do you feel I need to see my opthalmologist related to this issue? As I mentioned, she seemed unconcerned. But I am still scared and do not know if my right eye is really okay. Diane
Thank you. Diane
I appreciate your new message. I am still having occasional flashes. I have an appointment with my opthalmologist on April 4th. Is that okay to wait that long? My vision seems fine otherwise, but the flashes in my right eye ARE making me somewhat concerned.
One of the very best parts of talking with you has been the part where you said I do not have to panic. When it comes to having any sort of issue with one of my precious eyes, it can be a bit tricky NOT to panic.
