I had a fall and hit my head. After that, my vision was blurred in one eye. I went to an ophthalmologist who told me I had cataracts, but he did not say if they were caused by the fall. I want to know if they could have been caused by the fall. In the meantime, I went to an optometrist who also said I had cataracts and made some glasses to clear up the blurred vision. He examined my retina and said the structure was perfect. Do you think I need to see a retina specialist?
I read your query and can understand your concern.
Trauma to the eye may lead to traumatic cataracts. Also, it may cause breaks in your retina, which, if not repaired on time, may lead to total blindness due to retinal detachment. So it is a good practice to see a retina specialist. If the blurring is significant and is not cleared with glasses, you may consider going with cataract surgery. Hope this helps. Thank you and take care.
