Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Yes, there is reason to be concerned about. The concern is that unless proper detection followed by proper intervention is done, you run the risk of retinal hemorrhage which could risk loss of vision. I would therefore insist you to go for a thorough ophthalmological evaluation so that interventions can be done accordingly.

Let me know if I could help further.
