I've been experiencing some blackness surrounding my field of vision

I've been experiencing some blackness surrounding my field of vision to the point of blackout.I become unsteady and have fallen down. I have not really passed out but have been unsteady for moments at a time. I have been diagnosed with pre-diabetics and wonder if I am now diabetic. I took my blood sugar level and it was 166.

I had a vitrectomy two days ago, following severe hemorrhaging. The surgery was uneventful, but at the time of surgery I noticed blotchy black patches at the outside of my eye, a ring with the vision at the outer peripheral edges clear, but just inside the periphery a blotchy ring of black completely surrounding my visual field, and leaking into my central vision on one side. At my appointment today, the doctor found that I have severe hypotony (3), and has given me drops to try to bring it up. Could this cause a black ring? He was very noncommittal, just told me we d try to bring the pressure up to see whether it improved. I m very concerned, as the vision in my right eye is already compromised and this is blocking out a large part of the vision in my left. Thanks so much for your help!

Ive had more stress than usual. Yesterday I experienced something I ve never had before. I started seeing white spots like when u look into a flashlight and see spots afterwards. Then started losing about a third of my vision on the left side along with pain in my eyes and the front of my head hurting as well as being sensitive to sound and light. I slept for a few hours and it didn t go away. Also experienced rippling water type affect on the left side in like a side ways u shape which was the same light color as the spots. What may this be?
