What precautions do I need to take for sudden blurred vision?
Q: I am a 38 years old man having blurred vision in my right eye for the last ten days. It happened all of a sudden. Though my day-to-day activities have not been affected. I can see and read everything with the combination of both my eyes but I have problems using only my right eye. I cannot read anything, which is either close or far away from my right eye. Moreover, a dark shadow seems to cover the vision when I try to see with the right eye. The doctor told me that I am suffering from central sierra corneal retinopathy (CSR). He also said that the accumulated fluid should get absorbed within three to four months and has not prescribed any medication. At present my right eye's power is 6/18 and left eye's power is 6/6. I have never had a history of any such problem. What precautions do I need to take? Do I require any medication? Is there any treatment for this condition?
A:The patient with a diagnosis of central sierra corneal retinopathy (CSR) -
- Should avoid stressful activities, no steroid intake.
- NSAID drops may be given.
- Generally is self-resolving, laser is done only in non-resolving cases.
