This morning I woke up feeling as if I had "something" in my eye; it's been bothering me all day. Now the vision in that eye is very foggy. I am a 67 year old female, have had cataract surgery and do not wear corrective lenses except sometimes when I read (depends on the size of the type). I have had a retinal tear which was repaired by laser at a university hospital. Today and tomorrow are holidays; however, I'm wondering if I should contact the physician on call at my ophthalmologist's office.

Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Yes, I absolutely feel you should contact the ophthalmologist on-call. You are at significant risk for a retinal detachment and your symptoms sound possibly consistent with it.
Doctor DanB : Does this information help address your concerns? Does this make sense?

Thanks for your inquiry!My opinion is solely informative and does not constitute a formal medical opinion or recommendation.

Thank you very much. My gut feeling was that I should contact my eye doctor, but of course one hates to do that on a holiday. I will do that right now.. You've been very helpful.
