Do you think a child can suffer from retinal hemorrhage from falling off a couch onto a hard wooden floor?
No...classic shaken baby. If kids could get retinal hemorrhages from such simple things as that we would all be walking around with them. The force needed to cause rupture or detatchment of the retina is greater than that of a 1 1/2 foot fall... (+ info
Could I have a retinal hemorrhage from high altitude?
Last weekend, I climbed Mt. Langley (just over 14,000 in the Sierra Range). When I got to the top, I could see sparkly colors in the very left part of my left eye. It was almost like a halucination and very pretty. Someone mentioned that it could be a retinal hemorrhage. What does that mean? Is it something I should get looked at? I don't notice any problems with my vision now...5 days later...
There are many reports of retinal hemorrhages in mountain climbers. These have been described as high-altitude retinal hemorrhages (HARH) or as part of the more inclusive term altitude retinopathy. Up to 50% of climbers develop HARH at 15,000 alt. It is nothing dangerous or to be worried about but next time, be properly prepared.
Keep yourself hydrated, hydrated as with sports drinks, not water. Remember you might not feel thirsty and still be somewhat dehydrated.
Don't ascend to heights that will affect your eyes. If you decide to, ascend slowly.
The only available treatment for HARH is descending back to normal alt. (+ info
What type of accidents can cause retinal detachment in both eyes?
I am writing a story, and I would like to know what accidents (preferably sporting injuries) can lead to sudden permanent blindness in both eyes. The character it happens to, if it makes a difference, is a teenage girl. I have looked into retinal detachment, but that seems to occur over time. This is my first question, so I don't know how this works, but I would love a good answer.
I've had my retina partially detacked and had lazer surgery to correct it. I use to play baseball and softball. Getting hit in the head with balls, bats, all sorts of stuff can cause it. Just really getting hit in the head really hard. It doesn't all tear at once. It takes a long time. I guess unless you get hit like super hard. Several of the times with the batting cage accidents were right on the side of my head and knocked me out cold. (+ info
What are the possible causes of retinal cysts?
Or, is there anyone with personal experience of retinal cysts? Friend of mine has retinal cysts, many in the left eye, 1 or 2 in the right eye. Yes, he's lived in various countries in Africa so parasites are potentially to blame. But, if so, which ones? Is there anything other than parasites that it could be? Cited articles preferred – thanks.
Most retinal cysts are caused by heredity. I really don't know of any other causes. This disorder is called retinoschisis and is predominately found in males.
There is oodles of information of this on the web, some links are:
Some pages cover more than this eye specific disorder so you need to page down to the part labelled retinoschisis. (+ info
What are the treatment for low eyes pressure after retinal detachment surgery?
My friend's dad had surgery for retinal detachment, then he had some complications. Now his pressure in the eyes are really low, he has to keep taking hormone to keep his eyes pressure. Are there any other treatments for his low eyes pressure? Thanks!
My friend's dad had surgery for retinal detachment, then he had some complications. Now his pressure in the eyes are really low, he has to keep taking hormone or steroids to keep his eyes pressure up. Are there any other treatments for his low eyes pressure comparing to taking steroids? Thanks!
Sometimes surgery is necessary, but usually they put people on Pred Forte, which is an ophthalmic steroid. Sometimes, people's eye pressure goes up when they are on steroids, either systemic or ophthalmic, so they put them on this in hopes that the pressure will go up. (+ info
Can a brain hemorrhage be detected through an ofthalmological exam?
Can a brain hemorrhage or the beginning of one be detected though a test by the ophthalmologist?
Will a cats pupils react to light if they have retinal degeneration?
My cat was recently diagnosed with retinal degeneration. It was brought on by an excessive dosage of Baytril. (prescribed by an ER vet) He seems to have some vision left. He almost seems to have tunnel vision or to be far sighted. His pupils are very large at night and will stay that way, but when he is in natural light they retract back down to normal. Is this a sign that he does still have some vision?
My cat had detached retina and was blind for a few days. During that time his pupils stayed the same size. The Vet was able to prescribe something that restored his sight. We must give it to him every day but we don't mind. You might ask your Vet about that. (+ info
How does it feel when you have surgery with a retinal detachment?
I am 15 years old and I am scared. I got this retinal detachment, the doc. says, by a trama accident when I got hit in the eye 3 months ago. He says he has to cut also the membranes or something like that that is pulling the retina.
you don't feel a thing, they either give you a general anesthesia, so you sleep thru it, or they use numbing agents and again, you can't feel anything. (+ info
Can we implant bionic sub-retinal photoreceptors very close to damaged retinal cells from trauma or diabetic r?
Can we implant bionic sub-retinal photoreceptors very close to damaged retinal cells from trauma or diabetic retinopathy to boost their function?
Still in the planning/experimental stages, apparently:

How long after concussions do brain hemorrhage occur?
I had concussion about 5 days ago, My head has stopped hurting and I feel fine, the spot on my head is still a bit soft but almost back to normal, I did not go to the hospital. I just want to be safe, none of the hemorrhage symptoms, do you think I'll be fine?
At any point. That's just it there is no way of knowing. A clot could be formed and something like a hit to the head could jog it lose. Head aches are warning signs. Most likly though you'll be fine just you NEED TO GO TO THE DOCTOR concussions can KILL YOU! (+ info
