Common Questions and Answers about Laser eye injury symptoms

Avatar_n_tn You have had a serious eye injury. I hope you are seeing a good retina specialist as well as a good comprehensive ophthalmologist. You will need long term follow-up and evaluation. There are multiple reasons for the blurry vision/double vision/focusing problems: cataract formation, macular edema, corneal scarring. You need a good refraction, to determine what the best corrected vision is with glasses, or with a contact lens if needed to correct irregular astigmatism from a corneal injury.

Avatar_n_tn Hi, I had retinal detachment in right eye in 2002 with lattice degeneration in left eye. Scleral buckle fitted in right eye with laser in right. Had PVD in 2005. After a head injury in August this year had retinal tear in left eye in October which was treated via laser. A week after surgery started seeing a lot of floaters and haze. Had it checked by retinal specialist - who treated me in 2002. He discharged me with a return in 4 months.
Avatar_m_tn Now, as for some neurological thing at work here, the numbness you felt is normal from an injury to the face that causes a black eye, so a neuro is not who you need to see. I personally think you ought to visit an eye specialist, to find out how come you still have this black eye, so he can stop the origin of the discoloration. By the way, Vitamin K is good for clotting blood, you can get it from dark green leafy vegetables.
Avatar_m_tn It sounds as if you have inflammation inside the eye as a result of the injury and require further Dr. Feldman Sandy T. Feldman, M.D., M.S.
Avatar_m_tn i was curious about this,,someone that legally blind i have a glass eye from injury at 13 and different injury to other eye but have little vision in it is there any way to help it or even transplant ?
Avatar_f_tn About 1 month after the injury, my pressure went high again and I have to control them with the help of eye drops again. I think my main problem is the dilated pupil, since I can reach 80% vision, if I look though a small hole of a black disk. Now I am 2 months after the accident, my current situation is -- still dependent on eye drops to keep the pressure low -- pupil dilated (about 6 - 7 mm) and there is no reaction to light. glare and photophobia are cauing a lot of trouble.
Avatar_n_tn She thought it looked like an old injury which had healed itself but referred me to an eye hospital. I hadn't and still haven't experienced any detatched retina symptoms. During my first visit to the eye hospital the optician's diagnosis was confirmed, ie a hole in the retina which had self healed. A second appointment was arranged for further investigation.

823964_tn?1238830499 but it would not be a result of the graves proper were the thyroid gone, it would be the result of not having dealt with the eye in a timely matter. As an example, my son had laser surgery THE SAME DAY he had an eye injury because I knew waiting could cost him his sight. At the very least he would have had to lay on his stomach for 6 months, head down the whole save the eye...that's IF it had not been repaired the day it was damaged.
Avatar_n_tn Hi there, I was just wondering the results of your eye symptoms? This is my full week of non-stop eye flickering, I have been examined by two Optometrists, been dilated 4 times, depression tested, and vision tested (which I failed in the location of the flickering)...but they can't seem to find anything wrong. Did you ever get a diagnosis for your eye issues? Thank you for your time.
Avatar_n_tn I had laser repairs 3 times on right eye August 13th. Ihave had chronic eye pain since. Went back to doctor and he said that it was normal due to pupil change. I have lost sleep and have tried motrin. I can not stand the pain anymore and loosing so much sleep. Please tell me what is going on and how to fix this.
Avatar_n_tn Otherwise I felt OK. About ten months ago I started to experience acid reflux (which I never did before), plus the symptoms that I listed above. Otherwise I could function. I started on over the counter ant-acids. It did not help. Phase Two: That went on for about a month and the acid reflux got worse. Nine months ago, it was on Thursday. I got sharp stomach pains like I never got before the left area. Friday I felt strange and that there was something not right.

Avatar_n_tn Posted By Carol Hopper on June 08, 1999 at 14:38:24 I received an eye injury 20 years ago. At that time the doctor said I had extensive nerve injury and my vision would not return. I had limited front vision with very fuzzy periphial vision for a few months and that eventually went away.
Avatar_m_tn I had Retinal detachment in my left eye in 2002 dec becasue of eye injury(Hit by cricket ball) .Treated with scleral buckle. My right eye was lasered 360 degress to prevent RD occuring in my right eye as I am high myopic -10 D on both eyes(prior to RD) .Two years back doctor found a hole in retina of my right eye (which was lasered 360 degress) and lasered it immediately. Last month I was hit by a baby on my right eye.I immediately rushed to the hospital and assured me that every thing is fine.
Avatar_f_tn Not it is not likely to be permanant HOWEVER it is extremely important to have a complete dilated eye exam to rule out a retinal detachment or other eye injury. The flashing lights are a common symptom of retinal detachment and you did suffer a significant blunt trauma.
Avatar_n_tn Hi, I posted a question before regarding an accident I went through where I got pocked in the eye. The retina specialist determined I had a Retina tear which he cauterize right at the office using laser. I assume the tear was small and at the periphery of the retina since it was done at the office. My vision has improve dramatically after 1 month from the injury, not quite how it used to be.
Avatar_n_tn Your symptoms are most likely related to swelling, healing and reaction to the treatment, and not any direct injury to the eye.
Avatar_n_tn I've searched my memory and don't recall any direct injury to my right eye, but over a lifetime, with the number of accidents I've had, I suppose that something might have happened that affected that eye. In this situation does cause and date of injury matter? I haven't been able to learn much from my internet research, so I'd appreciate any information you can give me. Specifically -- how does one develop a hole in the retina, and what does scarring over mean?
Avatar_n_tn 1. Keep removing the exposed sutures. 2. Look on this page "Today's Pulse" and scroll through them until you get to Dry Eyes which I wrote and follow the suggestions to treat the dry eyes. 3. Take good care of your "good eye" protect it from disease, injury and live a healthy lifestyle.

Avatar_m_tn 11 year old daughter was hit in eye by rock thrown by child. Had iritis & 1.5mm X 1.5mm deep corneal abrasion (scarred) to the stroma in central axis. Pupil was 3mm larger than other & did not react to light. She did not receive treatment for it until 6 days after because she was at a summer camp & she was not taken to a doctor. She got back & we saw the pupil & learned of the injury & many symptoms she had had for days. She saw an ophthalmologist asap.
Avatar_n_tn 4 months ago when I went to my opthalmologist I found out I had a retinal tear and lattice degeneration, I went thru a laser surgery on both my eyes for it. A tear on my left eye was from 1 o'clock to 3 o'clock. 3 weeks after the laser I went back for a follow-up & my opthalmologist said everything was OK. I'm not sure what caused the tear but a month before that, I was playing tennis and the ball accidentally hit my left eye.

Typically the targeted post op refraction is between 0.00 (not needing glasses for distances of 20 feet (6 meter) or more) and -3.00 which has great vision for tiny detail at reading distance 13-14 inches. Any difference of greater than 1.50 diopter post op may have trouble with glasses (some people tolerate much larger numbers but you never know).
Avatar_f_tn 31 year old, female history of 2 retinal detachments in right eye due to injury. My retina has been attached for a little over 10 years. I have always had flashes since the surgery. Within the past several months, I have experineced a flickering light in my side vision of my right eye (kind of like a light bulb that is dying) I have seen my retinal specialist numerous times since the start of this. He says he doesn't know what it is, from a retinal stand point I am completely attached.
Avatar_f_tn Hello, From the symptoms it can be post inflammatory hyperpigmentation after the penile injury or a melanocytic macule. It is a small, sharply circumscribed, pigmented macule surrounded by normal-appearing skin. Cryosurgery using liquid nitrogen and laser are the main treatment modalities. I would recommend a dermatologist’s consultation for this. Hope it helps. Take care and regards.
1727909_tn?1314848810 If you have not recently had eye surgery or injury you probably have absolutely nothing to worry about. You really can adjust to floaters surprisingly quickly and they are part of the normal aging process. The same thing happened to me some years ago in my left eye. This was due to the 'jelly' in the back of the eye becoming liquid and harmlessly pulling away from the retina. It happens to everyone unless they die young!
