My boyfriend was born with hemangioma and lost vision in one eye and is now 19 years old. He can only see blurry images in one eye what can he do?

Not much c: Hemangiomas destroy function in the optic nerve or retina. These do not regenerate. The other possibility is that he may have had this growing on the eyelid causing a deprivation amblyopia. The location of where it was growing is important. Most likely he will not regain vision even if you could treat it now. Go to your ophthalmologist to be sure. ...Read more

I was laying down and stood up quick and my vision in one eye got dark. Why does that happen/?

Worrisome: When standing quickly, the blood pressure can temporarily drop causing dizziness and blurred or dark vision. The visual changes should occur in both eyes. If the vision is changing in only one eye, then I would be concerned about a circulation problem with that eye. See an ophthalmologist for evaluation. ...Read more

Recently diagnosed-son has 20/200 vision in one eye and 20/40 in the other. He is 9 yrs 4 mos old. Can it be corrected? Has had a physical every yr :(

Poor vision: It depends on the cause of the poor vision. Amblyopia (poor vision in one eye) may be due to uncorrected refractive error (your son might need glasses), a congenital cataract, a lazy eye, or some other ailment. He needs to see a pediatric ophthalmologist soon, since glasses might help him see better. ...Read more
