Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Thank you for the question and sorry to know about the visual loss in the right eye.
If the visual loss in the right eye was sudden in onset, with an explanation of reduced blood supply to the optic nerve then it must have been due to central retinal artery occlusion(CRAO). Visual recovery in this condition would depend on how quick the blood circulation got restored in the artery ( the artery is usually blocked in such cases by an embolus or blood clot coming from the carotid arteries in the neck). Visual recovery can be partial or even total loss depending on the extent of involvement of the blood circulation. However it is better to get carotid doppler scan done to look for stenosis or narrowing of the carotid arteries. This can be done by reference from a physician or cardiologist. Unfortunately beyond 24 hours there is minimal hope for visual recovery with any of the medicines. Sorry for putting it so bluntly but visual recovery directly depends on how early the blood clot gets dislodged. Intravenous Mannitol drip is given to bring the intraocular pressure down thus reducing the pressure on the artery. I hope the information helps. Please feel free to ask follow up questions , if any. Thank you. I truly appreciate your spirit and salute your positive attitude.
