Why is my right eye blurry after having retina tear lasered on left eye?

Why is my right eye blurry after having retina tear lasered on left eye?

Sympathy: It may sound silly, but the eyes are intricately associated with each other. If one eye becomes irritate or injured, it is not uncommon for the other to experience a degree of discomfort as well. Additional possibilities include: your operated eye was stronger and now you are relying on a weaker eye; or you are experiencing old vision problems that you did not recognize prior to the procedure. ...Read more

Recheck: Shuttlecocks actually convey significant energy to the eye when hit straight on. You did the right thing by having a retina check but if you have persistent light flashes, that could be a symptom of retinal disturbance including detachment. This is worth a second look by a retinal specialist. ...Read more

Get a consult: See a retinal specialist to determine if you have any significant retinal issues. A "thin" retina does not really tell you very much about the health of your retina. There are plenty of excellent retinal specialists in the Boston area. ...Read more

Maybe: Cbt or cognitive behavioral therapy can be quite helpful in dealing with floaters. Unfortunately, tackling the floaters directly is not always possible or advisable, so it is very helpful to learn to deal with the floaters. ...Read more

How often should I have my eye checked as I'm diagnosed with incomplete PVD in my right eye today? Already had retinal detachment surgery in left eye.

How often should I have my eye checked as I'm diagnosed with incomplete PVD in my right eye today? Already had retinal detachment surgery in left eye.

If symptomatic . . .: Vitreous detachment happens to all of us, eventually. The great majority of the time it does not cause problems. In the very small majority of patients it can cause a retinal tear or detachment. If you are experiencing symptoms such as flashing light or new floaters, you should see an eye doctor as soon as possible. If the vitreous detachment is "fresh" your doctor will determine how often. ...Read more

I have always had many floaters in my eyes but lately I have a very dark one in my left eye that I can see even when I close my eyes. Retina tear?

Depends, See Eye MD: Although many floaters are benign, a new onset of larger or "different" floaters especially if accompanied by any light flashes or changes in vision can be a warning for retinal problems. Make sure not to rub the eye(s) and avoid any vigorous shaking of the head & eyes while arranging to see your eye MD. If the retina is involved, time is essential so don't put this off! ...Read more
