Flickering

Hi I wonder if you can advise me on this. I am currently recovering from a centeral retinal vein occlusion.(6 months ago) on my last eye clinic visit (3 weeks ago) my OCT scan showed a reduction in my Macular edema..& my pressures where normal..But over this last week I have been experiencing a lot of flicker in my vision.this is not flashes of light but more constant..also I have noticed that my words appear to have dirty puddles on them..although previously the words did have parts missing I understand this is due to the central vision being affected the latter is a new symptom..I am not due to go back to the eye clinic until next week..so would appreciate your advice,if I need to see them sooner..Thank you Eve.

Call your Eye MD today, tell them what has happened and get in ASAP. It suggests a new problem or increase of macular edema. Remember to protect your "good eye" with a healthy lifestyle, protect your eyes from injury, have them checked regularly.
