Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Welcome to health care magic.

I reviewed your history.
It seems from the history that your husband is having central serous retinopathy.
Injury or trauma can cause more commonly macular edema. Central serous retinopathy is caused by idiopathic inflammation.
The edema following injury can be treated by the use of steroids.

Hence I advice you to consult your ophthalmologist preferably a retina specialist for examination and treatment accordingly.

Hope this is helpful to you.

Thank you
With regards
