Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

These symptoms suggest possible retinal detachment.

Flying should be ok.

But avoid straining your eyes like reading or sewing or focusing on any close object.

You should see an eye specialist soon after reaching your destination.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.

I ended up canceling my flight because I didn't get an answer in time, so the advice was useless. I would like to have the amount of $40 refunded. Thank you. *****

Sorry to hear that as the question came to me late as there was no eye specialist available at the time you posted the question.

Your request forwarded to customer service.

thank you,
