If he can see no better than 20/200 or his visual field is no more than 20 degrees (severe "tunnel" vision), ...Read more

In regards to retinal detachment, symptoms are red eye, blurry vision, black spots and lights, pain at times, noticeable dimness all in one eye only

I have 20/20 in both eyes. 120 degrees field of vision in both eyes. Is my 120 degree field of vision in each eye good?

In a few cases it is because of limited vision in one eye due to anatomical or physiological defects. But mostly the vision is down because of refractive or positional problems in which the brain makes a choice to ignore one eye. ...Read more

Large floater in field of vision and have some blurriness in vision. Is floater likely the cause?
My Father is experiencing vision loss (side: both eyes) (time frame: gradual onset) and cataracts.
Loss of vision reflects the inability to perceive images. Such a phenotype can be due to occlusive or barriers to light (e.g. cataracts) through retinal alterations (e.g. wet macular degeneration) to optic nerve lesions (e.g. from a pituitary adenoma) to central nervous system ...Read more
