My mother-in-law can not get a diagnosis from her Dr. She is having vision problems with only 1 eye - says it's like looking thru lace. They have ruled out all the common vision diseases but do not offer any other suggestions. Dr. says "you are a mystery to me". I'm concerned that if she doesn't get a diagnosis soon she will end up blind in that eye, or cause an accident becuz she's driving with impaired vision. Any ideas on possible causes for this?

  • If it was a medical doctor she went to, he should have referred her to a retina doctor/eye surgeon. This sounds like retinal detachment. She should see a retina doctor ASAP.
