Can T Be Possible To See After Being Blind
Accidentally looked at the sun directly for a couple seconds. Can see fine, , just hurts a bit. Should I be worried about this? Don't want to blind.
Probably no harm: Very difficult to look at the actual bright sun without your eye unconsciously shifting its gaze so no damage occurs. Look up "Amsler" grid on the internet and see if your perception of the grid (following instructions) reveals any abnormalities (which I doubt). Probably nothing to worry about. ...Read more
Active research: Depends in part on the reason for the blindness. Electronic light detector arrays are in development for those with retinal light receptor degeneration such as retinitis pigmentosa. Stem cell work may be useful in time as ways to replace non-functional cells. Restoration of vision is an area of active research and new discoveries are widely publicized. ...Read more
Nothing if total: A completely blind person, unable to see any light at all, does not develop visual input or perception. All of the other sensory inputs work hopefully but a truly blind person sees nothing. ...Read more
Not really: Most blind people have some vision but it is impaired. When vision is missing, it is absent, not dark. Try this. Close your eyes and point your finger at an object. Now try to see the object with your finger. You can't. There is no sensation of vision with a finger. Blindness is like this. ...Read more
Light perception: If the vision has dropped to the point that the eye can only detect light and dark, then we call that light perception only. We do discriminate in that some can tell what direction a light might be aimed at the eye and we call that light projection which is localization or directional sensitivity which indicates a little better function than light perception only. ...Read more

Once cataracts are fully developed, and you are blind because you can't see through them, can they still be removed?
Can you tell me if I have had damage to my central vision for months. A colored ripply thing I can't see passed. The doctors am blind?
Decreased vision: You should have a retinal / macular exam by an ophthalmologist (MD) in your area. Possibly, you may have a macular bleeding situation related several systemic conditions. ...Read more
I had a patch of grey that blinded part of my vision I couldn't see through it then it for smaller and disappeared. It had blue sparkles and red?
Occipital migraine: You had an episode of occipital migraine. This is a benign event, although visually annoying which usually lasts 5 minutes up to 1 1/2 hours at worst. The cause is unknown but all will clear rapidly with no after effects. Most will get 1-3 of these in a lifetime. A few have them more frequently. These are nothing to worry about. ...Read more
What happens if you can't see, you're blind. If you can't hear, you're deaf. If you can't smell, you're?
Anosmic: Is the term for inability to smell. ...Read more
Maybe: Depends on why you're blind. Some reasons are fixable. Some are not. ...Read more
Great question!: There's studies showing that blind people can 'see color' in their inner vision that's pretty accurate to how those particular colors appear to us, who can see. How is that possible? So, that's a great question. If they had vision, and lost it later, it's probably true they can see in their dreams. For those who never saw, it's a different question, as those neurons were never developed that way. ...Read more
Depends: It depends on why you are blind. Best suggestion is to consult an ophthalmologist who should be able to answer your question after examining you. ...Read more
Depends on cause: Some causes of "blindness" are treatable. One of the most common causes of worldwide "blindness" is the simple need for a glasses correction. Cataract can always be treated to restore vision no matter how severe, unless there are other additional eye problems. Some retinal and corneal causes of blindness can also be helped medically or surgically. An ophthalmic exam is needed to know for sure. ...Read more
I see why the need for guide dogs to assist the blind, but why do some people in scooters have them?
Different handicap: People in scooters are handicapped with an inability to walk or move. Some are blind but most are not. Dogs can be used for orientation but also can be a warning, or a companion, and some are trained to retrieve objects for their owners. So they are multifunctional - isn't that terrific? ...Read more
If color normal: The tests are designed with little dots that are shaded along the axes of confusion for the color deficient. A color normal will see the indicated symbol or number while the deficient will miss it. ...Read more
Probably not: Night blindness (nyctalopia) is a deficiency in overall perception in dim light. If you have persistent haloes around lights at night it could be from corneal edema, cataracts or some defects in light transmission to the back of the eye. You should have your ophthalmologiist see you to sort this out. ...Read more
Night blindness: Many people have more trouble seeing at night than during the day and have normal eyes. People with a small glasses prescription may not need it during the day, but the vision may be helped by using the prescription at night (driving, for example). Some people have trouble getting around in the dark, and have poor dark adaptation. It is possible that this could be from a retinal problem. ...Read more
My eyes start to be blurry and I can't see a thing for 3-5 seconds after I watch tv. Am I going blind?
NO: When we watch tv, stare at a computer, or read, we do not blink as often as we should. This causes the eye to become dry and blurry. ...Read more
Color blindness: There is no such condition as "reverse color blindness." the most common type of color "blindess" typically occurs in males. These people confuse red and green colors. In rare cases, people can be born with complete color blindness and only see colors as various shades of light and dark. In severe cases of color blindness, patients often don't see very well either. ...Read more
It Depend the age of: Sight loss affected the visual quality of the subjects’ dreams. The study determined that people who go blind at age five or younger tend not to have visual dreams, whereas if blindness occurs at about age seven or older, chances are the blind will see some images. When people go blind between ages five and seven, their potential for dream sight could go either way. ...Read more
