Is it a medical emergency if there is blood in the eye causing reduced vision?Eye & LASIK
My mom has blood in her right eye. She was told to wait for an injection next week. During her check-up last week she could read letters, but yesterday she could only see white light. I am unsure if I should take her to the emergency department instantly, or wait till next week for her injection.
In general, any sudden deterioration in vision should prompt an urgent visit to an eye doctor.
Even if blood had previously been found in the eye, there could be a new problem or the original problem could have gotten a lot worse.
You should go to see an eye doctor as soon as practicable.
