Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Is your intraocular lens in the anterior chamber, the bag, the ciliary sulcus or sewn in place?
How long has the bleeding been going on?
What medication problems do you have and what medications are you taking?
What drops, etc are you using for your eye pressure? What is your pressure on your current therapy when you are at your worst (active bleeding, ghost cells etc)?
I see that you are offline. I will switch to Q&A format. This format 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..... :)
The lens is anterior (front?). I can't really be sure how long because I think the blood cells have been there a while, but the first episode of blocked vision was in November 2012 and I saw a doc in the practice right away and it cleared up after about 3 hours. I take 81mg asprin daily and the PCP wants me to stay on because I'm a controlled diabetic. My pressure is 15-21 but one day when I went in right after a blood release is went to 30. I take Lotemax 4/day for inflammation and something with a dark blue cap 2/day for pressure.
If you have an anterior lens does that mean, by definition, that no posterior lens is possible?
