Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.
Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.
I am a retina surgeon.
How old are you?
Have you seen any flashes of light?
Close one eye at a time. Is this only in the right eye?
How long has this been going on for ?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
It sounds like you are bleeding inside the back of your eye.
This can be from many different causes but, the bot***** *****ne?
This is an ocular emergency.
You need to go to Emergency now. The doctor will call the ophthalmologist oncall to come in to dilate your eyes and figure out what is going on.
This is NOT something that you should wait to take care of tomorrow.
You could also call your glaucoma doctor (who I would think is an ophthalmologist, Eye MD), and see if she can examine you now at her office. Many times I do this for my regular patients....
Does this make sense to you?
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
