What Do Flashes And Dark Shades In The Vision Indicate?
My mother is complaining of flashes in the corner of her eye and also some shades infront of her eye from today morning. She can see more of that in the darkness.
She had an eye check up in the month of July, 2017 and her retina was good.
What is her problem?
Note:- She had TB meningitis in 2014. Also she suffered temporary blurred vision for 7 months due to Ethambutol effect.
Your mom may need eye examination.
Hi sir.Welcome to Healthcare magic.
I have gone through your question.
My opinion is that,your mom may have vitreous detachment.It is the major disease causing sudden flashes and darkness.So kindly fix appointment with your ophthalmologist immediately.He will guide you in proper way.
Is it something dangerous. Will she have any problem in future? Is it curable?
Yes solution is available.
Hi.Welcome to our website.
I am not sure that your mom is having vitreous detachment. Your mom's symptoms are suggestive of vitreous detachment. To confirm the diagnosis,a complete eye examination is needed. So kindly consult ophthalmologist immediately.
Surgical options are available for this problem.A surgery called pars plana vitrectomy is available.
I wish your mom for her good health.
