If you are experiencing problems with your vision, it is likely that you are feeling some stress and anxiety about what will happen in the future. Our staff is here to help you by providing a comprehensive exam, fact-based diagnosis and treatment options that will help you manage or eliminate the problem.
We often see clients who are experiencing blurred vision, shadows moving down from the top to the bottom of the eye, or floaters, spots, and/or flashing lights in their field of vision. While these visual impairments may be nothing serious and typically will go away on their own, it is important to realize that they may also be a warning sign of the retinal detachment.
Treat these symptoms as an "eye emergency" until proven otherwise and seek immediate care .
Retinal detachment can be a serious medical issue that can jeopardize your sight. It occurs when the retina becomes detached to the supportive tissues beneath it and when these layers are not properly attached to one another, sight loss occurs. While this issue is not painful, total vision loss can occur if the retina is completely detached.
Fortunately if the problem is treated quickly vision may be restored. If you are concerned that you may have retinal detachment, please contact us today for an eye exam with our optometrists.
