What will happen to my depth perception after an eye injury?

What will happen to my depth perception after an eye injury?

It depends: It depends on the severity of vision loss. If vision in the injured eye is poor then depth perception is lost and has to be "re-learned" by visual clues. If vision remains good in the injured eye or can be restored surgically, then depth perception should not be effected. ...Read more

What happens to your depth perception after an injury in one eye?

What happens to your depth perception after an injury in one eye?

Decreases: Depth perception is partially dependent on the ability to fuse an image with both eyes (stereopsis). After an injury that takes the sight from one eye, this will decrease, but you can still use other visual cues for depth perception. ...Read more

If an eye muscle is damaged in the brain after concussion and it leads to blurred vision, how long does recovery take. Will the eye sight return back ?

6-12 weeks: If an oculomotor nerve is damaged as a result of head injury then commonly it will regenerate over a period of 6-12 weeks providing it has not been severed or damaged severely. Make sure to have an MRI or CT scan to be sure there is no subdural hemorrhage. ...Read more

Can you tell me if one eye has blurry vision, does that impact depth perception at all, or does one eye have to be totally blind to reduce depth perception?

Can you tell me if one eye has blurry vision, does that impact depth perception at all, or does one eye have to be totally blind to reduce depth perception?

Usually not: I knew a one eye'd tae kwon do master who could throw a punch at your face and stop within a milimeter of hitting you. There are enough visual 'clues' that we use that even with one eye our brain can percieve a depth perception. You'd fail our stereoscopic tests and probably waste money in 3d movies, but other than that you would have a normal life. ...Read more

Following a bad cataract surgery and loss of iris, can a lens still be put in the eye to see, what to do?

Post Cataract Surg: Yes, an intraocular lens (IOL) can still be placed into the eye even with an extensive loss of iris. Innovative artificial iris implants are also available to avoid post operative glare that can occur after iris loss after cataract surgery. More info at: eyedoc2020.blogspot.com ...Read more

Vision problems after a traumatic brain injury, I don't see everything to the right as I can to the left by looking straight forward, anyway to repair?

Assessment needed: Vision problems after tbi can occur at different levels, the eye itself or parts of the brain such as the optic nerves or occipital lobe of the brain. Neuro-opthalmologists may be hard to find, but this would be their particular area of expertise. ...Read more

Dear doctors, what will happen to our eyes,when we forcibly stare at a bright source of light? Does it cause any damage to the eye?

Dear doctors, what will happen to our eyes,when we forcibly stare at a bright source of light? Does it cause any damage to the eye?

Usually nothing: Most light sources (except the sun and lasers) are not sufficiently intense to do any damage. You of course will find staring at bright light to be uncomfortable, but your pupils will get automatically smaller and the retina involuntarily moves in little rapid motions which minimize the intensity for any one point. ...Read more

What are the chances my body will reject a corneal transplant? Due to my eye scarring some years ago after an infection, i need to have corneal transplant surgery. While i'm prepared to for the surgery and recovery time, i'd like to know more about the po

Low risk: Unless the cornea is highly vascularized, i would not worry about it. Follow your doctors med schedule religiously, and call right away for any rejection symptoms and most rejections can be reversed. A rejected cornea can be replaced if it can't be reversed. More concerning to me is the risk of trauma to the graft. Such injuries can be devastating so consider glasses for protection at all times. ...Read more

What causes your depth perception to be off after a vitrectomy for a detached retina?

What causes your depth perception to be off after a vitrectomy for a detached retina?

Re-calibration: A vitrectomy removes some of the vitreous humor from the eye. Light goes thru this and is refracted in a particular manner. After vitrectomy, the amount of vitreous is different and your eye, optic nerve and brain have to re-calibrate the incoming light information and the response to it from the brain. Change requires time for adaptation. ...Read more
