Part 4 of a 6-Part Series

Though I prefer using natural therapies, if you have vision loss in one eye, call 911 and go to the emergency room immediately — even if it clears up on its own.

The information below is from our free new iPhone application called "Natural Cures" — already in the top 10 most popular free applications in the iPhone App store's "Health and Wellness" category!

Vision Loss in One Eye

BACKGROUND

Sudden loss of vision in one eye should be treated as a medical emergency, and the person should immediately be taken to the emergency room. This symptom can be a warning sign for a stroke, just like loss of function in an arm or leg on one side or sudden difficulty with speech can be a warning sign for an oncoming stroke. Caught early, the entire stroke may be prevented, where waiting could leave the person paralyzed.

TREATMENT

Call 911 or your local ambulance phone number and go to the emergency room — NOW!
