Yesterday they took a picture of my eye when I went for my bi-annual exam. I have been having blurring in my left eye; light flashes and floaters.
The doctor tells me that some liner in the inner portion of my eye is pulling away from the outer part of the eye. That freaks me out!! Can you explain more about this, and the dangers????
It sounds like you may have retinal detachment which requires immediate surgery to repair it. Also possible you have a vitreous detachment which has a 5-10% chance of causing a retinal detachment. Make sure you see a board-certified ophthalmologist right away and get this properly evaluated. Since I don't know exactly what you have I can't comment further but this could be VERY SERIOUS - however, if properly treated prognosis can be quite good.
