eye biopsy

Are you put to sleep for this proceedure? 1-10 how painful is it? I seen a retina specialist this week because I woke up seeing a large amber color circle in my left eye. After many test and ultrasound the doctor found a yellow fluid behind the retina, so he's sending me to have an eye biopsy. He also said it could be some kind of parasite or breast cancer. Have you ever heard of this yellow fluid behind the retina?

There are numerous possible causes of yellow subretinal fluid, including unusual parasitic infections and tumor.  If the amber circle developed "overnight" this would tend to speak against tumor. However often something has been present for awhile and is suddenly 'noticed' by the patient.

The method, pain, and recovery are totally dependent on how the doctor is going to do the biopsy.  Ask him.
