If someone has floaters, flashes of light and intermittent cloudy vision like a film over the eye what can it mean. There is no curtain or dark veil.
Pucker: You are probably referring to a condensation of the vitreous face over the macula which causes a ripple in the underlying retina and a lowering of the vision. This is not often termed a pleat but could be named so. These need evaluation by retinal specialists who can sometimes treat it. ...Read more
Pleat: Send photo. Sounds like conjunctivochalasis which are extra folds in conjunctiva. Consult with us to help solve this issue. ...Read more
Floaters : Floaters arise when the vitreous gel inside the eye liquefies naturally with age and sometimes due to trauma, inflammation, or even high myopia. The floaters may consist of protein precipitates. Though the vitreous gel inside the eye is clear, it is composed of a complex matrix of collagen proteins that undergo changes. Lastly, get an exam to make sure that there are no tears in the retina. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The bony walls break: The orbital contents are contained within a space called the orbital cavity. The space is lined by bone. The part of the cavity near the nose is called the medial orbital wall. The part of the cavity at the bottom is called the orbital floor. When pressure builds up rapidly in the orbit (such as getting punched) the medial wall and/or the orbital floor rupture outwards or "blow out.". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I got punch in the eye yesterday, and when it happened i saw a white flashes. What does that mean?
White flashes: White flashes of light seen after being punched in the eye are due to a sudden change in the shape of the eye that can cause the gel in the eye (the vitreous) to pull on the retina (back film of eye which is an extension of brain tissue).

Get checked out: Although reversible loss of night vision may be associated with vitamin a deficiency, this is not likely in developed countries with normal diet. How long have you had poor night vision? Do you have congenital hearing loss? Loss of night vision may more likely be secondary to a variety of retinal dystrophies, including, most notably, retinitis pigmentosa (rp). When associated with congenital hearing loss, rp is part of usher’s syndrome. Symptoms are progressive nyctalopia (night vision loss) and constriction of visual fields (ie: inability to see immediate surroundings like stair rails or peripheral traffic when gazing forward). Other conditions may cause similar symptoms but are less common. Diagnosis is made by ophthalmologic examination including ophthalmoscopy, erg and visual field testing. Cataracts may occur and further impair vision. Unfortunately, there is presently no recommended therapy to arrest or cure these conditions but research is being conducted into the effects of neuroprotective agents as well as surgical remedies with stem cell and retinal pigment epithelial replacement. Please have your eyes dilated and examined. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Unfortunately, the defect is not reparable, and the visual field loss is irreversible. Hopefully you have had your 2 year old examined by an Ophthalmologist to elucidate the diagnosis & help discuss management. ...Read more
