Brief Answer:
Retinal detachment needs to be ruled out; visit hospital

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thank you for getting back with the answer. Retinal Detachment needs to be ruled out. I would suggest you to visit hospital and get an appointment for a "Consultant Ophthalmologist". He will examine eye with the help of fundoscopy to confirm status of retina and other layers of eye. Further management will depend upon the results of examination.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you good health !!
