If im seeing spots in my vision like squiggly lines black and brown and my eye really dark does that mean vision loss? I have hydro

If  im seeing spots  in  my vision like  squiggly lines   black and brown  and  my  eye really  dark  does  that  mean  vision  loss?    I have  hydro

See eye doctor ASAP!: Squiggly lines in the vision with what sounds like a loss of vision (as you describe"dark vision") is worrisome for a hemorrhage inside the eye or a retinal detachment. While the floaters you describe are often associated with normal aging changes of the vitreous gel, sometimes complications like bleeding or a retinal detachment can follow. See your eye doctor immediately! ...Read more

I've been diagnosed with mild symptoms of glaucoma. As there a natural way to cure this and get rid of permanent vision loss?

I've been diagnosed with mild symptoms of glaucoma. As there a natural way to cure this and get rid of permanent vision loss?

Chronic Condition: Glaucoma is a chronic medical condition that needs to be monitored and followed on a regular basis. As long as glaucoma is caught early and treated early the majority of patients do well. Unfortunately there is no 'cure' for glaucoma but it is a manageable condition. Damage from glaucoma is not reversible, the goal of treatment is to prevent further vision loss. ...Read more

Can you prevent vision loss?

Yes: Best way is to identify any problems early so that available treatment has a better chance to work. Not all vision loss can be prevented since the eye is related to the central nervous system and can't be regenerated yet. ...Read more

If you get paint thinner in your eyes, will it cause instant, permanent loss of vision?

If you get paint thinner in your eyes, will it cause instant, permanent loss of vision?

No: Paint thinner is caustic and can cause significant ocular damage if prolonged contact occurs. If you flush it out quickly, severe injury can be avoided. Vision after a corneal burn from paint thinner will be poor immediately after the injury but should improve as the eyes heal. The final vision varies depending on the extent of the injury. ...Read more
