Retinal Fluid Behind The Eye
Fluid behind the eye causing fuzzy vision in one eye/what will a fluorescein angiography tell them?
Where/what leaks: There are many causes for leaking of fluid in the retina. Treatment depends on the underlying cause, and location, of the leak. Fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography (oct) are the main tools used to determine the cause and location of the leak, and the best treatment. ...Read more
Can happen: 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. Wait one year then consider surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
During posterior vitreous detachment, the vitreous separates from the macula first or peripheral retina or no preference?
Generally peripheral: Vitreous degeneration, the conversion of the vitreous gel into a dense syrup, usually starts peripherally and eventually involves the center including the macula. In most cases it is a benign and normal event but if adhesions exist, then the retinal can lift up and tear or become detached. ...Read more
Aqueous humor: This is a clear fluid, derived from blood serum, which contains some nutrients, oxygen and which bathes and provides for the health of the interior components of the front of the eye. It also maintains the normal pressure so that proper focusing is possible. It is produced continuously and an equal amount drains continuously. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Using an indirect ophthalmoscope simply means that your eye surgeon will use special headgear and a handheld lens to see into the periphery of your eye and use a foot pedal control to deliver the laser pulses. Good luck. ...Read more

Unlikely: These lesions gradually put more pressure on the eye if they break through the bone barrier between the orbit and the ethmoid sinus. This will not cause floaters although if the eye is being pushed out of position, it might cause existing floaters to be more noticeable. An ENT doctor can help with removal of this mucocoele. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, rarely: There are many types of glaucoma, some of which are due to elevation of eye pressure. When the eye is compressed, the pressure increases and there can be damage to the optic nerve. This can be a result of trauma causing a hemorrhage in the orbit, tumors compressing on the eye, and even pressure from sleeping on one's eye. Most often, the pressure build up in glaucoma is due to internal factors. ...Read more
Wrinkle on Retina: Macular pucker or epiretinal membrane results in formation of a thin layer of scar tissue which distorts the retina. It is caused by cells migrating through a tiny hole or from inflammation. If the symptoms of blurring and distortion are severe enough, then surgery may be needed. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
