The pediatrician referred my son to the opthalmologist because he has no red eye(like in pictures) when light is shined in his right eye. What causes?
Poor red reflex: Loss of red reflex in one or both eyes can be secondary to numerous issues. The most common causes are related to eye misalignment, cataract or other media opacty, or normal eye with abnormal reflex. Other more serious conditions can rarely cause this issue so i strongly recommend keeping the followup appointment with the ophthalmologist for a complete evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pupil size: Bright light in the eyes does indeed cause your vision via the pupil to get smaller. Less light coming through the smaller pupil is usually the normal natural response to keep from overwhelming the retina. The peripheral field of vision is constricted with this respose and the central macula, needing the brighter level of light is in control. ...Read more

My grandson put his eye right up to a led green night light for 40 seconds probably. Could this damage his eye, does he need to see a doctor. ?
Not likely: Several years back there was a big question about laser pointers! they did a study on subjects that needed to have their eyes removed due to cancer. The pointed the laser pointer directly to the center of their vision. On pathology, no damage was noted. It is all about intensity and duration! looking directly at the sun or an eclipse will damage the eye. Leds may do the same. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Seeing "stars": A blow to the eye will stimulate the retina which will think that the disturbance from the shock of the hit is a light flash. The retina has no nerves of pain, or pressure or most other sensations It just has light and thinks any stimulus is light. The color is variable and can be green, or light, or red depending upon the power and angle of the blow and the portion of the retina hit. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I got injured in the eyeball by my key that hit my eye. Do I need to check in with an eye doctor to see if it is urgent.
Yes: It's urgent if you have pain & emergent if you notice a change in your vision. Regardless, someone should examine you to look for corneal abrasion, puncture or foreign body (these are less likely since you're asking but it's best to be sure since you're asking). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you tell me when an eyelash inside your eye goes all the way up your eye and lost. Where does it go?
Falls outside: Eyelashes are continuously produced, mature and fall out. The eye is quite effective at dealing with this and lashes that fall into the eye soften with the moisture and are washout. This happens all of the time. The lash will fall onto your skin, or the ground. They are in fact tiny and rarely noticed during this cycle. ...Read more
I went to the eye doctor for the first time - the optic nerve size is slightly different between my eyes. Why would this happen/should I be concerned?
No: your ophthalmologist would have told you otherwise if there is a need to do something different, I believe he meant the optic disc rather, not the optic nerve. Just follow up routinely, with the ophthalmologist for fundus (back of the eyes) exam, and ocular pressure measurements, best wishes ...Read more
