What is it called when you get a blister in your eye near the back of the retina and how long do they last?

I had one before that lasted 3 days but this time its going on 13 days its sucks because all i see in the center of my vision is a big black dot and no its not a floater :) .Ive seen a eye doctor and he doesn’t know what to do he is telling me to see a retina doc.

Chosen Answer:

You need to insist on a referral to a retina specialist as a matter of urgency as this can cause permanent blindness. All forms of retinal detachment are far easier to fix in the early stages, and are usually impossible to fix if they’re ignored for too long.

You certainly are suffering from a detached retina, and from the facts that it’s a recurrent problem affecting your central vision and seems to get better, it’s probably Coats’ Disease. A link which I’ve included below will tell you more, but it’s for a UK based site so costs aren’t discussed as treatment in the UK is free. I’ve also included a link to another Y/A (best) answer as the answerer’s son has a detached retina and she welcomes emails from those who wish to benefit from her direct experiences.

If you’re in the USA then treatment may not be cheap, but you have to compare that to all those who are blind or partially sighted who’d give everything to get their vision back again.

    talk to this group:the retina forming bubbles/blisters sounds scary to me:it does not mean it detaches where the bubble forms?
