Customer Question

Is there anything I could do for this annoying blob from a recent leak in my left eye? I am seeing already a retinal specialist and he recommended the argon laser, the possible scarring for which will be far from the center of my vision. It is difficult for me to read. I either need a lot of light to blast through the blob or I would use a magnifying glass in addition to my prescription glasses.

But, in the long run, there really is no good solution other than to wait for the fluid to resolve. If it does not go away in 3 or 4 months then treatment can be considered.Does this make sense to you? It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire.
