How can blurred vision and floaters with light sensitivity be treated?

My little boy aged 5 has fallen at school and bumped his head on concrete. This happened 8 days ago we have been to A&E and had him checked fully with eye tests at the eye hospital which are all clear. He still complains of blurred vision, shapes in his eyes and they are light sensitive what should we do?

Hi... Blurred vision even after so many days of head injury means that he is having an intracranial problem. I suggest that you take him to the nearest Emergency Room and get examined again as his symptoms are persisting and I recommend you seeing a pediatrician also. Please get his blood pressure checked and get him evaluated completely neurologically. If his symptoms are still persisting he might even require a neuroimaging.

I am 55 years old, nearsighted, and had laser treatment for tears in my retina in September. I d been seeing flashing lights in the periphery of my left eye. I experienced more flashes of light after the treatment and was very wary of what was happening, had two follow-up apointments and was told the flashes of light were normal, the eye was healing. I had sex and noticed the appearance of floaters, first a few and many more flashes too, and a couple of days later suddenly had a massive amount of floaters flooding my eye as well as the flashes and went to emergency. I was told I had had PVD, my retina was fine and to go for a follow-up appointment in a month. I was told it was OK to swim regularly as I do and to have sexual relations. I can t help but associate the incident to having had sex, and the floaters, I fear, are here to stay. They are very worrying and are in my field of vision, black and lighter specks, smoky film, like looking through a veil. I have also had a redder left eye and ticks in my left eyelid that last for long periods of time. I wonder if you could help me. Thank you!

RI was putting in a contact lens, thought it slipped up into eye so I used my finger to mive atound the front of my eyeball I guess the cornea. It seemed tp move around loosely. The cobtact fell out so I was just moving around the cornea. Then I suddenly couldn t see clearly from the eye even with contact or glasses. No floaters or tunnel vision or spots or pain, just fuzxy vision. What should I do? My vision is blurry in the eye. Looked up info online. Think my conjuctiva is swollen and irritated causing issues. Happened very suddenly. Mike

My seven year old has been on keppra for one full month now, and she has been complaining of not being able to see the writing on the white board at school. We had her vision tested before she started school in august and the optometrist said she may develop problems up close but that should be it. Could the keppra be effecting her vision? Thank you Tyne

She also has had about 2 months of blood in and around her stools, with white spots like mozzarella cheese. she refuses to see a ship doctor and wants to wait for 2 months before she comes home.

Hello, I m live in Bosnia and Herzegovina ( you may not know where it is ) and I have a boy age 4 years and 5 months. My doctor specialists in ophthalmology said that he has amblyopia on the right eye. His sight is approximately 25% of the normal. She ( the doctor ) also said that the condition is incurable. Apparently the colour of the eye nerve is lighter than normal. Diagnosis: Amblyopia O.D. H50.0 Entropy OS H52.0. Please tell me is there any hope for my child and his sight on the right eye.
