Usually: A retinal tear allows fluid to seep under the retina and lift it off (retinal detachment). Laser energy can be delivered to surround the tear and create scar re-attachment which puts the retina back in place and prevents further change. It is a useful tool for correction of this problem in the right cases. Your retinal ophthalmologist can diagnose and treat this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is optos ultra-wide field retinal imaging more efficient than indirect ophthalmoscopy to see large details of the retina?
Efficiency-accuracy: Efficiency, speed, ease of use are attributes of optos, but detailed, high magnification ; dynamic indirect ophthalmoscopy by the eye md is better for careful discriminative diagnoses. Sorry, i don't want to be replaced (yet) by a camera! i've never been able to replace my careful examination of the retina with indirect ophthalmoscopy by an image, except by sd-oct which is excellent. ...Read more

Floaters/Flashes: Floaters and flashes are caused by changes in the vitreous gel of the eye. Flashes usually go away within a few weeks, but floaters tend to persist for much longer. Over time the floaters tend to be less bothersome, but this is a gradual process that's different for each individual. Unfortunately glasses will not help. If the floaters or flashes worsen you should get rechecked for a retinal tear. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly not: If the lowered vision is in part due to a refractive error, than lasik will improve that portion of the vision. So if glasses help the vision, then lasik will help to that degree. If the lowered vision is from nystagmus, lasik will not alter that eye movement and the vision will remained lowered. It is a combination of the two. Also, if the nystagmus is not controlled, lasik can't be done. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Advanced Macular pucker & stable glaucoma in 1 eye. 2nd eye mild ERM. What is prognosis for adequate vision. Concerned that both eyes have disease.
Close follow up: Macular pucker can occur as a consequence of spontaneous pucker. There are procedures that can be done to help eliminate this but they carry some risk so usually the retinal surgeons who do this will wait for a level of lowered vision that is significant or note progression as a reason to intervene. The glaucoma is a separate issue for both eyes. These conditions should be closely monitored. ...Read more

See ophthalmologist: It seems as if you have no vision in this eye despite attempts to repair the detachment. If there was trauma at the time, the eye can degenerate. We consider intervention for eyes that look bad or are hurting. See your ophthalmologist to assess your current situation and you should be seen regularly to protect the remaining eye. ...Read more

Laser eye surgery: It is possible with some laser platforms to do corneal refractive laser surgery on a patient with nystagmus (if that is what you mean by rapid eye movement), in order to correct myopia. Surface ablation / prk would likely be the best choice, if the rest of the evaluation indicates the procedure would be safe for that patient. ...Read more
