Hello.

Did you see any flashes of lights before this happened?

Did you do any physical exertion, like lifting heavy weights, before this thing happened?

Do you have high myopia? Do you wear glasses ?

Do you smoke ?

Sudden loss of vision/ narrowing of the visual field is a matter of concern and you should see the ophthalmologist immediately.

Some causes for this loss of vision could be-

Retinal detachment

Central retinal artery obstruction

Vitreous hemorrhage

Glaucoma

So , please get an immediate consultation with your eye doctor for retinoscopy/ophthalmoscopy examination and diagnosis.

I really appreciate you trying, "but go see a dr" is not really helping me. I would like to pay you something but, I don't feel like I received a full answer. I do not mean to be rude. Is there a way to pay you a partial?
Doctor: DOCDEV, Doctor replied 8 years ago
Customer

If you have described the symptoms correctly, then I have given you the differential diagnosis of the condition. It would be prudent to see the ophthalmologist right away, because there can be potential hazard to your vision.

Ofcourse I cannot examine you , and so cannot give you the correct diagnosis online. (Nobody can)

I am not trying to give you a stereotype answer. But thats all I can do.

Im sorry I was asking is there a way to submit partial payment. I understand what you are saying and I appreciate it.
Doctor: DOCDEV, Doctor replied 8 years ago

I will forward your query to Customer Care. We, experts are not directly concerned with payment issues.

Thank you.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
