How big of a visual field defect would be an eye problem while driving?

20-30% reduction: Usually after a 20-30% reduction, difficulty with eye fatigue and loss of effective night vision is noted. Believed that excessive hooding to that level forces drivers to lift their head when driving at night, resulting in excessive glare and loss of "gray" colors needed for depth perception.

Defect called amblyopia in the left eye, what to do?

Defect called amblyopia in the left eye, what to do?

Protect good eye: Amblyopia is usually never acute, it's something that developed from when you're a child. Basically means you cannot see 20/20 out of that eye. So it's nonfunctional except in seeing light and form. However your dominant, normal eye can see 20/20 w/or w/o correction needs to be protected at all times. So make sure you're wearing eyeglasses, or some protection, because your vision is dependent on it. ...Read more

Do all myopics have standard measurement of thinner retina with each degree of higher myopia? Couldn't it be due to defects in anterior layers of eye?

Do all myopics have standard measurement of thinner retina with each degree of higher myopia? Couldn't it be due to defects in anterior layers of eye?

Different issue: Myopes have a combination of greater length of the eye from front to back and a lense that is higher power. All retinas except some pathologic retinas are the same thickness. A myopic eye focuses the light inside the eye in front of the retina as the focusing is too strong. A myopic corrective lens disperses the waves moving the focus backwards onto the retina. ...Read more

Had nell's palsy 4yrs ago n my left eye is still recovering. Mri showed no defects to the nerves. Will my eye ever recover? It's been 4 yrs.

Probably not: If your eye is having trouble closing from bell's palsy at this point, i doubt it will regain that ability, unless it has been slowly improving.. Besides aggressive lubrication with eyedrops, ointments, and punctal plugs, treatment needs to be focused in closing the lid some. Botox can be helpful temporarily but a gold weight in the upper lid would be a good long term starting point. Good luck! ...Read more
