Seeing a curtain coming down in eye
Seeing a curtain in the eye is a serious concern and should prompt a patient to seek care from an optometrist immediately. Seeing a curtain in the eye is usually an indication of a retinal detachment, whereby the thin light-sensitive covering at the back of the eye starts to detach. This is considered an emergency and usually requires same-day surgery to limit loss of vision. If you are seeing a curtain coming down in the eye, you should seek care from an optometrist urgently so you can get triaged and promptly referred to a retinal surgeon for immediate surgery.
