Sorry I just started using this website. Want to explain the full scenario. My sister is 15. Shes healthy and active. She slept perfectly fine but when she woke up her vision was very blur in one of they eyes. To the point where she cant identify a person by their face but she can see that someone is standing in front of her. We rushed her to the hospital and there after a good 6 to 8 hours, the doctor called for an otologist. The otologist came and after seeing her he said she has Retinal Vasculitis.
He didnt tell us much and said that hes going to conduct all tests and then refer her to a retina specialist. He didnt give her any medication saying that first, its important to find out why it happened (infection? autoimmune? etc). My question is. Shes only a child. Will her vision come back? im sure you cant say for sure but what are the chances? Can there be anything done to cure this blurr vision. Please help.
An 'otologist' is an ear physician. I'm sure you mean 'ophthalmologist' and Eye MD. Retinal vasculitis is an ultra-severe problem that can be associated with very serious disease elsewhere in the body. Getting the tests and getting her to a retina specialist ASAP are the most important things. Not much else I can tell you. If you look up causes you will see some very serious disease. Most important thing is checking 'good eye' and seeing what can be done to prevent it from going the same way. Move heaven and earth to get in very soon to the retina MD.
