Suggest treatment for scratched cornea and hole in the retina

Hi Dr. I had a scratched cornea and was treated with dropt etc. when I returned amonth later for my eye exam the Dr. took photos of my left eye and said I had a hole in the retina. He said it wascommon and that I should wait 2 months and then if he thought I should see a retina specialist for surgery he would refer me. I m 67 female and very scared. Please advise

Your ophthalmologist is right in advising you to wait for some time.

The time taken is to allow time for retina to heal itself.

In the meanwhile, you can take treatment for corneal hole.

Hope I have answered the question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have a bit of bleeding in one eye in the white portion. There is no pain, no injury. I was not aware of it until someone else ask me if I knew there was blood in my eye. This occurred yesterday, I think, while I was gardening: digging hole in clay soil and mulching, lifting heavy bags of mulch. After gardening today I had a quarter size puddle of blood on my cheek. Will this heal itself?
