Cross Eye Wandering From Trauma
Can happen: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. Wait one year then consider surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Sometimes the force that hits the eyes is sufficient to carry enough energy to the lens that it will opacify and become a cataract. That in fact is why the name traumatic cataract exists. ...Read more
Unfortunately no: Although we are making strides in tissue transplant techniques and stem cell therapy, we have not advanced to the point of whole eye transplant. The optic nerve, would need to connect its 1.5 million axons (the "wires" of the nerves) with the brain in a way that cannot currently be done. The cornea (front window) can be transplanted in cases of severe scarring from trauma. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Does wearing sunglasses in direct sunlight ruin vision? Some light from sun gets into eye from side and above angles.
No: The clear gel that fills eyeball is normally attached to all parts of the inside of the eye. As we get older it can become more liquid (watery) and detaches from the back of the retina causing flashes & floaters. This can indicate a retinal tear. As the retina detaches, change or loss in your side vision is the next symptom. Computer unrelated. U should see your eye doctor to check the retina. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
L/R Hemifield: Monocular vision loss is not cortical, but the right (or left) side of the visual field can be impaired (hemianopsia or quadrantanopsia) from a cortical lesion in the occipital lobe of the brain. Physical trauma can be the cause of such brain damage, and in a child would be suggestive of abuse. A CT/MRI is the next test to correlate the visual field with the anatomy. ...Read more
NO: Retinal hemmorhage requires high velocity back-and-forth motion. Simple impact, especially from the low height of a typical couch cushion to the floor wouldn't do it. There is an extensive scientific literature about this and some controversy about alternative explanations for the bleeding, all too detailed to summarize here. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No, take breaks: The distance from the screen has nothing to do with the effect of the light on your eyes/retina What you need to do instead is make sure you take breaks. 5-10 minutes every hour away from the screen/light is adequate to rest the eyes. Don't pick up your cell phone during that time - best is to actually close eyes and let them rest, but can also just stretch, take a walk, etc. ...Read more
I was hit by a blunt object forcefully on the left eye , followed by bleeding from the lid & blur vision what precautions to take avoid driving ?
Could gazing at home led light or ice cold compress on eyes afterwards lead to retina or cornea damage causing blurred vision of bright objects?
Not usually.: But, of course, it depends on how bright the light and how long you stare. Cool compresses are even less likely to cause these problems. If you are having changes in your vision, please see a board certified ophthalmologist in your area for a quick examination. Eye sight is a precious thing, and should be protected. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
