Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
It sounds like he now has a blind and painful eye, however you dont indicate what is the problem. My guess, purely a guess is he has had some sort of a secondary glaucoma or corneal issues....what do you think is the problem? If you have some clues, I can help.
as far as i know he still has vision but he may not have and is not telling anyone. I just talked to my brother and he said his vision is very blurred, He said he just decided to see another specialist because the one he has been seeing told him he would have to get used to it, he said it started last march and it really flared up the other night, siad his eyeball swells up and throbbing pain. He is very depressed and worried and so am I said he was on several meds and eye drops and this new doctor took him off of most of them and he thinks that is what caused the flare up, I am worried and told him that if he has episodes like that he should go to the ER and they will do test to determin more such as CT scans or MRI?? he said he would I can not believe he has put up with this for so long, it has affected his life style, his mood, and he is worried, he is wearing eye sayety glasses around the grandbaby so he doesn't have any thing happen what do you think Have you ever heard of HERPES OF THE EYE. I have always had extremely bad fevere blisters since pre teen age, and one year doctor told me it was herpes. this is what they told him that it was like that, it can get in the nose, mouth or on the lips and it is simply do to stress.
For someone with the symptoms, he can have a variety of issues....herpes included
Herpes Keratitis (corneal infection)
angle closure glaucoma (chronic)
map dot fingerprint dystrophy.....
list goes on and on, almost all can be treated and eye can be stabilized. If there is anytning in particular you would like info on, please let me know, I wish him well, Dr. Stevens
thank you so much for the information I will call him back and mail our conversation to him. Maybe it will ease his mind and he will ask more questions.
you are so welcome, I hope he gets better soon, Regards *****
