I have lattice degeneration and small holes within the lattice degeneration area for both eyes. The doctor say there is a risk that water will go underneath the hole and peel off the retinal to cause retinal detachment. Currently I do see some floaters in indoors and I see more floaters when I am outdoor during daytime. The doctor told me to watch out for symptoms like suddenly many floaters appearing, flashes and something like a black curtain covering the eyes. There is nothing to do now but if it gets worse, my doctor will do laser surgery. I usually go for follow up appointments every 6 months. I was told to avoid activities like jogging, jumping, bungee jumping, bumper cars, roller coaster...
I have frequent headaches and I intend to go for a head MRI, or maybe CT scan.
Q1 Will doing a head MRI or CT scan affect me eye condition or make the condition worse?
Q2 Can I work as a driver driving 12 hours a day? Will my eye condition get worse?
Q3 Is there a risk of both eyes having detachment at the same time when a car accident happens?
Q4 In normal circumstances both retina will not likely to detach at the same time, is that correct?
Q5 If many floaters appeared, or flashes and something like black curtain appear, will these symptoms stay on permanently until I go for surgery or will it go away after some time?
Thanks a lot.
