Since its new it is of concern. It is important that the "eye doctor" you saw was a physician MD ophthalmologist. If you saw a non MD non physician optometrist then you need to see an Eye MD. If you did see an eye MD and the problem persists then see a retina specialist. In the USA find one near you at www.aao.org
