Floaters, flashes: Retinal detachment releases blood elements into the visual axis -you will see many floaters - and jiggles the retinal -this stimulus creates light flashing or light streaks - and as it progresses you may see greying out or blockage of the vision. When these occur suddenly especially after trauma, see an ophthalmologist right away. This is a mechanical event -no natural remedies exist. ...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

Guarded Prognosis: Pain and red eye usually aren't associated with retinal detachment unless it is chronic or unless the eye has inflammation and the detachment is caused by a fluid build-up instead of a hole. Given your history there are other things that can dim vision, such as a blocked vessel. You should be carefully evaluated by a retina specialist to optimize your chances of recovery. Good luck. ...Read more

Many causes: The eye color can change from a cloudy cornea, from corneal swelling after surgery or from iris color change. Iris color is a function of the amount of pigment, blood and nerve supply. Trauma and inflammation, injury and surgery and diseases that damage or diminish nerve supply can cause iris color to change. Pigment can be lost during surgery and make the iris color lighter. ...Read more

My eye vision is negative 9 is that means that i may have retinal detachment or any complications in the futur?

Chances are higher: Neg 9 means your eyes are longer than average. Your retina then needs to stretch out to cover the extra length. So you are at higher risk of retinal detachment than the average person. It's important to have routine dilated eye exams. Also, signs of retinal detachment include flashing lights, new floaters, or a dark curtain coming across your vision. See an eye doc urgently if you notice any signs. ...Read more

I am a -5.75 in both eyes. I don't know what is considered severe but just out of curiousness. Should i be worried about retinal detachment later in life?

Higher Risk: Being that near-sighted does pose a higher risk of retinal detachment than someone without near-sightedness. Nonetheless, the risk is still very low. The best way to address this concern is to get an annual dilated eye exam by an ophthalmologist to check for any signs that could predispose to a retinal detachment, such as lattice degeneration. ...Read more

Can an increase in eye pressure lead to retinal detachment?

No: Retinal detachment and glaucoma are independent variables. Neither causes the other. In the course of evaluation for suspected retinal detachment, the eye pressure is always measured so sometimes glaucoma will be detected by the retinal surgeon. ...Read more
