Eye movers: Not sure what rsa means but your eye problem is most likely a disorder in which means an eye muscle in one eye is not functioning well, possibly because a nerve to that muscle malfunctions. Double vision on downgaze can be seen in nerve damage near the brainstem from a variety of causes but because the nerve involved is so small, even powerful scanners may be unable to detect them.

Lately i've been having a bright light shoot through my left eye, I lose vision for that split second. What could this be?
Detached retina: 'flashes of light' with vision loss may be a sign of detached or 'detaching' retina which is an emergency. The retina is located at the back of the eye and is important for normal vision. Detached retina can be painless and progress to vision loss--so it is best to get seen by an ophthomologist right away. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
MY son split his eye open and has had dissolvable stitches can i wash his hair it has been 6 days since having them ?
Sounds fine: Washing one's hair should not be a problem if an eyebrow or eyelid laceration has been repaired. During the first 1-2 days after the repair, one can try to avoid soaking the wounded area. After 3-4 days, the wounded area should already be sealed over by new skin cells or a protective scab. If it's been 5-6 days, taking a normal shower sounds fine to do. I wouldn't yet rub or scrub the wound area. ...Read more
What are these split-second vision loss (as if blinking: i know i'm not) that I have in my right eye while i rest my head on the right to sleep?
What's the difference between photopsia and visual seizures? I had split-second flashes of light so i saw my eye md, but he found nothing wrong.
Photopsia is a flash: Of light that will nearly always occur unilaterally, or in one eye only. A migraine causes "scintillating scotomas". This is a scintillating absence of vision which typically does not lateralize - meaning it is not possible to say that it is in one eye or the other. A "visual seizure" or occipital lobe seizure mimics retinal migraine as both are due to occipital lobe dysfunction. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Went to eye doctor because i thought i may have seen a flashing light in my peripheal for a split second. He found nothing wrong. Is photopsia hard to miss when you experience them?
Yes. Often.: Clinicians cannot see your flashes. Only you can see those. We can however, explain flashes on the basis of subtle changes in the vitreous gel and signs of traction on the retina. Most unilateral flashes are a result of vitreous traction - also not always evident on exam. So, if exam is normal and no (retinal) defects were found, i wouldn't worry. Inform your doctor if you have any rd signs. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Got hit in my face 3-4 days ago. Now have black eye. Bleed a bit from the nose then stop. Now see mucus/salive with small blood through mouth split.Er?
Nose or eye: There could be two reasons for this finding. First is that the trauma that you sustained could have also caused damage to the inner lying tissues of the nose or it can be due to the fact that the nasolacrimal duct which drains tears from our eye is draining blood from the eye. Either way you must see an ophthalmologist to get thoroughly examined. ...Read more
