Ask an Eye M.D. Answer Archive

Please read our important medical disclaimer.

Question:
Nine days ago I had bi-lateral knee replacement. Yesterday I woke up with a spot in my left eye vision. It is still in the same place and it is the same shape. The pharmacist said it does not have anything to do with taking coumadin or dilodid. The doctor on call told me to call my eye doctor. Any idea what could be causing this?

Answer:
You should see your Eye M.D. The spot in your vision could be due to a number of problems, some minor and some serious. The spot could be due to a detachment of the vitreous in your eye, an infection, or a hemorrhage to name a few. Please see your Eye M.D.
