I am highly myopic. After my retinal specialist checkup, I started to notice a scotoma in my left eye. The scotomas started to multiply. Now, after a week I have 10 of them. I went to an emergency and visited two doctors. The first doctor said she can notice a vitreous traction because of a PVD and that after the vitreous detach it will resolve on its own. The second, retinal specialist, said my vitreous has already detached and that the scotomas I see are due to the detachment and will be permanent, but my brain will adjust to ignore them. But I am afraid he understood I was complaining about floaters.
I notice that the scotomas become smaller when I lay down. I also researched on the internet, that when a PVD occur and doesn't detach properly, it may pull the retina in some parts. Can It be the case? I got around 10 new scotomas in 1 week. Does it really mean those scotomas may be permanent? No doctor performed an OCT. What do you think is the case in your experience?
