Five days ago the vision in my right eye went blurry - like the eye has a coat of vaseline on the surface. The next day the ppthamologist said this was a large floater from a pvd and that I also had a retinal tear. He treated the tear with a laser. My question is about the blurriness. I don't have a problem with the black squiggly floater that floats through my vision but the sensation of having one clear vision eye and one blurry vision eye is driving me nuts. Does this blurriness go away?
Likely you had some bleeding in the eye. I think you need to ask your surgeon about your concerns, ask if there was a small amount of blood in the vitreous. Also make sure there are no other problems such as cataract or macular degeneration.
Thanks - that helps. I've read lots of posts about the squiggly black floaters, and although bothersome, they are not what's causing me to be so anxious. I just hadn't seen anyone asking about an intense fogginess associated with the floater. The vision is perfectly focused but it's like there is a dark fog in the eye and it's very distracting with the other eye being normal. Hopefully, it's just the blood dispursing and being absorbed.
