Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today. Thank you for requesting me.
You need to be seen by an ophthalmologist
TODAY. Either call the office of a local Eye MD and see if there is a eye surgeon on call, or contact your ER to see if they have an ophthalmologist on Staff that can examine you in the ER.
This could be nothing serious....or it could be a blinding condition such as a retinal detachment
DO NOT DELAY seeing an ophthalmologist.
Does this make sense to you?
Don't forget to mash the positive feedback button for me...the one labeled "excellent" is the most fun to push by far ;)
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I don't go up in a puff of smoke -- I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
