What should be the first aid for detached retina which is getting worse ?
Hello, I ve been suffering from what I think is detached retina for 5 days since Monday. It gets worse on afternoons but gradually goes well during the night. I ll be visiting the eye doctor tomorrow since it s a Saturday and no work. What should I do for the meantime so that my eyes can endure until tomorrow? Thank you. I have been seeing flashes and quick darkening of vision on the sides. I am 24, not diabetic, male, 68kilos and 5 6 height. I am nearsighted and have astigmatism .
Thanks for query,
From history there is strong possibility of detachment of retina,
Just relax.avoid seeing tv,no reading, no swimming etc exercise.
Take some analgesic if pain is there.
ok and bye.
