Eye and Vision Care
Seeing black spots in vision
Black spots and spider web like lines appear in vision field. At first only one eye but now both eyes are affected.Eye drops have no effect. Problem has affected one eye about one year the other eye a couple of days. Does not seem to go away such as a floter. Visits to eye doctor has not resolved the problem. Help getting worse.
Get another dilated eye examination from a different eye doctor ASAP. You have a right to expect an explanation for your symptoms, and apparently your previous eye doctor could not or would not provide that. Possible causes of your symptoms include retinal hemorrhage, retinal detachment, or vitreous detachment.
