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). Alternatively a sudden change in blood pressure in the eye can also cause one to see white flashes of lights. If persists, see eyeMD. If high Rx, see eyeMD ASAP ...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
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

Rare disease: I presume you are referring to a optic nerve Coloboma, which is a rare congenital abnormality of the optic disc of varied severity that causes moderate to severe visual field defects. 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
Went to the eye dr. He said my vision was 20/400. What does that mean. I had macular hole surgery last year in my rt. eye.
Poor eyesight : 20/400 vision means that you see at 20 feet what others can see at 400 feet. There are many people with 20/400 vision. However, they can be corrected to 20/20 with glasses or contacts. If your vision is 20/400 and cannot be corrected, it means you have poor eyesight and are legally blind. ...Read more

However if the vision is disturbed, or the eyes are painful, then you should see an ophthalmologist right away. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
