How long ago was the injury?

Are you having pain in that eye?

Are you seeing any flashes of light?

Does you eye look normal when you look in the mirror or is all bloodshot etc?

Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?

This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.

Eye Doctor: Dr. Rick, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago

Thank you for that additional information.

You should see an ophthalmologist (not an optometrist) today for a complete eye exam.

The floaters could be from blood inside your eye and your retina needs to be closely checked for any holes, tears or pending detachments.

Do not put off getting this exam done today....

Does this make sense to you?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
