A 21-year-old member asked:

Do drusen cause vision loss in advanced dry amd?

4 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in

Maybe: There are different types of drusen. Soft drusen are thought to be the biggest risk for vision loss. They can lead to large areas of retinal loss with "dry" macular degeneration, or for reasons that have yet to be fully understood, lead to a break in the foundation layer of the retina and allow blood vessels to grow and destroy the retina-termed "wet" macualr degeneration.

Maybe: If the macula was involved, the prognosis is guarded. Since the macula is the most sensitive part of the central vision it is essential to treat retinal detachments quickly.

Is it okay to have temporary double vision in one eye?

Dr. Robert Chang
Specializes in Ophthalmology
Probably: If temporary and does not recur, double vision in one eye is usually due to a tear film issue that is corrected with blinking or artificial tears. If only one eye but more constant, then could be astigmatism, cataract, epiretinal membrane, or some other monocular cause.
A 38-year-old member asked:

Does sudden blurry vision mean that you will be blind later in life?

Dr. Richard Rosen

No: Sudden blur can result from migraine headaches, momentary low blood pressure, high blood pressure, or other causes. If such episodes recur they need prompt medical evaluation but do not necessarily represent risk of permanent vision loss.
