Hello
How long have you had this
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I have not yet seen the answer to my question on the eye problem. The problem started on 13th or 14th of February, 2014, when I on woked up in the morning and felt as if my eye lashes fell in to my left eye as it sometimes does happen. With a little scrubbing with my hand it clears. But this very one persist for about four/five days when I noticed a black oval shape on target of focus. thank you.

The question sat in another category until I was alerted to it.
I have nothing to do with the delay as it is a new question to me.

This is potentially serious.

Potential causes
Glaucoma
Cataract
Macular degeneration

Ischemia and vascular diseases.

So this needs prompt examination.
Go to any eye clinic , opthalmologist that you can.

This is not home diagnosis and treatment.
