Night Blindness One Eye
Vision impairment and blindness are conditions in which a person cannot see well or see at all, even with glasses or contact lenses.

If he can see no better than 20/200 or his visual field is no more than 20 degrees (severe "tunnel" vision), ...Read more
Floaters: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In a way: A lazy eye is one which moves usually outwards from the other eye. It usually gets that way from infancy and childhood issues with the vision or eye position. 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

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
