I have diabetic retinopathy. vision only in right eye since 1989. I have 20/25 vision in right eye. 2 1/2 weeks ago noticed shimmering in peripheral - sparkles and waves. It is constant. Went to a neuro opthamologist, had CT scan MRI, neck MRI, retinal exam, macula exam, optic nerve exam. They can't find anything wrong. 18 years ago had laser all around the peripheral but not again since. Doctors say it is that area that is "flaring" or "inflamed". Do not have migraines, never did. Also, it is constant and visual migraines only last up to 40 minutes.
What can I do? Is there any treatment? Doctors say it will go away on it's own. Nearly 3 weeks, no improvement. Please help. Only have ONE eye.:confused:
