I recently got hit in the eye with a soccer ball and was diagnosed with Commotio Retinae. No retinal tears were present but a small hemorrhage was seen.
Its been about 4 days since the injury and I still have a significant blind spot (cannot see anything even when shinning a light into my eye). The blind spot does not affect my central vision, but is somewhat banana shaped just to the left of my central vision extending downward.
Do I have any hope of getting my vision back? If so how long does it usually take? I've read that vision can be restored spontaneously, but I got the impression that this was for patients with blurred vision and not field loss.
