Slow degradation of my vision. Seeing a retina specialist

Posted by Bonita @bonitav, May 19, 2015

After a slow degradation of my vision, especially close as in computer usage, saw optician and after eye exam, received new lenses. Not much improvement, so I scheduled appointment with an ophthalmologist, who diagnosed very dry eyes, but with bleeding behind the retina in my left eye. Referred me to a retina specialist whom I see tomorrow. Any ideas what could be causing this other than retina detachment? About two years ago, had laser treatment for floaters. Wonder if this is related to that procedure. Can this also be related to a vascular problem? Thanks!

@isaosunagatty My Opthamalogist is the the one that told me to get Perservision I didn't know anything about it at the time but glad she did as my eyes haven't gotten any worse.

@bonitav Hi Bonita, I have had bleeding without detachment. There are a variety of reasons: https://www.aao.org/eyenet/article/vitreous-hemorrhage-diagnosis-treatment-2.
Good luck with your appointment, keep us posted 🙂

Still having eye problems. The last few days, sometimes I see a purple smudge on things. Like the leaves of a houseplant may look purple or something like that. I saw my eye doctor Wednesday but she had nothing new to offer. I see her again in Dec. i am considering seeing another doctor. Just wondering about this odd purple business.
