  • I plucked my eye

    I was trying to get my contacts out after my first use, but it was really difficult and stinging my eyes, so I stupidly tried to use tweezers to get it out since my nails are too short to help... I plucked the white of my eye, and a bit of it came up, like if you were to pluck your skin. it wasn't the contact that came up though. I'm not in pain or anything and my vision has not changed, I'm just worried that plucking the white bit could cause an infection or another injury? I won't....

  • Still seeing flashes and floaters after Vitrectomy, is this because I still have vitreous traction caused by lattice degeneration?

    As the title says, I've been seeing flashes and floaters after my Vitrectomy to fix a retinal detachment. I've seen my surgeon and my optometrist after the surgery and they've told me the retinal detachment has been repaired. I did not receive an explanation as to why I had a Retinal detachment in the first place. I hope this is because they feel it is too complicated for me to understand rather than them avoiding a diagnosis. I have read that Lattice degeneration can lead to vitreous....

    Eye dilated again 12 hours after seeing the eye doctor

    I went to the eye doctor early this morning around 9AM. Everything was fine and he dilated my eyes as usual. My eyes quickly recovered back to normal, although my eyes had been a bit irritated throughout the day and I could feel residue from the eyedrops on my lashes. It's now 10PM and after showering, I noticed my left eye becoming blurry. I looked in the mirror and my left eye is totally dilated again. Is it possible that the residue from the eye drops got into my eye while showering, causing....

    AION and cataract surgery

    I have NAION in both eyes, including 2 events in my right eye. I now have cataracts that are further diminishing my sight. The Opthomalogist said they are ready when I am ready for surgery. I am concerned that the surgery could cause another episode of AION. I have read that cataract surgery could cause AION, but no where can I find if you already have AION if it could get worse after cataract surgery.
