Welcome to Just Answer:
If your left eye vision feels more magnified than the right eye it is likely that you have aniseikonia (with left eye relatively more nearsighted than the right eye). In addition, if you are having more floaters recently, it is possible that the trauma to the side of one of your eyes affected the attachment of the clear thick gel inside your eye (vitreous
) causing it to become loosely attached. The loosely attached vitreous to the back or side of the eye (retina) can affect the refraction
of light in the affected eye compared to the vitreous without vitreous detachment, resulting in more significant aniseikonia and/or floater. It is also possible that while you had some prior floaters or risk for vitreous detachment (VD), but the incident caused it to become more pronounced. In general, VD is not harmful, except for the discomfort. The management is routine monitor of the back of the eye to exclude any associated retinal tear or hole that can can traction and cause retinal detachment
. If such retinal holes or tear is found the management is laser to repair them. This seldom occurs. In the case when such floaters become severe especially with age, the retinal eye doctor may surgically remove any melted vitreous to resolve the symptoms of severe floaters. On the other hand, it is possible that during the incident that enough strain or pressure was put on the eye to cause brief bleeding inside the eye on the side, but resolved, and leaving particles of old blood cells floating in the vitreous. If this occurred, it is not harmful. Overall, to control the symptom of difference in refractive error between eyes, I suggest you follow-up with your eye doctor as scheduled for another complete eye examination and be checked for new corrective glasses
. I suggest that you raise all above points that I have mentioned to your eye doctor at your next visit.
