Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
My eye is acting strange - last night straight poles looked curved out of the corner of my right eye, and there were flashes of light along the same margin of vision. Today there seem to be more floaters, and my vision just doesn't seem right. Is this something that will go away on its own?
I noticed something else while I was waiting - flashes like lightning along the same corner of my eye. Is there anything I can do between now and tomorrow morning when I can see the optho.? Also - could this be stress-related? I was taking a break from the trauma room - my husband was in a car accident (OK-ish now). Thanks!
Thank you - no chance of an eye surgeon tonight, unfortunately - although I did leave a message for him. One persistent floater is acting like some sort of tumbling ciliate - or a small folding and unfolding contact lens, which is making me a little nervous. And the bottom right of that eye is a little like looking through a snorkeling mask that's collecting water. I'll check to see if you have any other thoughts and then stop reading...
Thank you so much for your help. But I have to admit that I was feeling a whole lot more confident about this before I got to the ya and mash the button part of the conversation - it sounds a little sketchy. I wish I hadn't read that part, although I did mash - the advice was very helpful.
