See a doctor. It is best to find an eye doctor to see you in person and access the problem.

I suggest that you go for eye surgery. First talk to your doctor because this is a serious issue. You do not want to risk any changes to your eye sight because of this. So go contact your doctor and tell him the issue and let him know your are interested for a solution.

If there is a hole in your retina, this is called a macular hole. This can be caused by trauma or inflammation to the eye. The only treatment available today for a macular hole is surgery.

Go to a Retina Specialist immediately. This could cause your Retina to detach, resulting in the loss of sight. Wear sun glasses when outdoors.

You should see a Ophthalmologist as soon as possible. Make sure you find someone to take you. They will probably need to do surgery.

You should go and talk to your eye doctor about it, because sometimes this can lead to detached retinas. You may need to have it surgically sealed.

First you need to see an opthomolagist to get a formal assessment. The doctor can then recommend weather to observe or to use therapy such as laser therapy, which is painless. They can also help identify why this happened so that it does not happen again or progess further and threaten your sight.

If you know you have a hole in your retina it was told to you by a doctor in which case they should have given you instructions.


Answer by  renee (354)

Make sure you see your retinal specialist, if you don't get it surgically sealed, with laser my concern is that it could lead to a retinal detachment resulting in loss of vision. Some people see their doctor every three month to get it checked, what ever you do, don't do nothing, your sight is important.
