    Vision Disturbances

    I’m 16, female, and on birth control pills and nasofan. so a few minutes ago my vision started flickering quite fast, in both eyes. It looked like the lights in the room were dimming and getting brighter repeatedly (they weren’t). it seems to have stopped now. I went for a regular eye test about 2 months ago, and everything was fine aside from one small dark floater that I still have. Over the last few weeks I’ve noticed my vision changing. I’ve been experiencing the entopic phenomena, but on light....

    Pigment in eye

    Hi, I had an optometrist appointment and was told that I had a small amount of pigment in my right eye and asked if I had any bowel trouble to which I replied that I didn't. The optometrist basically shrugged and moved on, but now I'm curious. Any ideas what it could be? I am shortsighted (have been since about 14, am currently 25), and at my last appointment about 3 years ago, was told that I have some astigmatism in my right eye and less in my left.

    Sudden vision change after blow

    I have had cataract surgery, followed by retinal detachments in both eyes. More than a month ago I received a blow to my eye, with severe blurred vision. When I move the eye it is like looking through wiggling jello. My eye doctor says there is no detachment but that the eyeball has changed shape. He wants to correct it with glasses, but I am wondering if he could really see a break in the vitreous. The specialist who did the surgery for the retinal detachment is very out of town, but I am debating....

    Glaucomo and receding eyelid in one eye

    In Oct 2017, after visiting my opthamolgist because of an unusual feeling in my left eye, I was diagnosed with dry eye and prescribed Restasis. Within 2 days of Restaisis my left eye opened very wide. My opthamologist erroneously suggested a neurological problem. I went to Emory University Hospital Opthamology for a second opinion and learned I have glaucoma in my left eye only, but they could not explain the receding eyelid, since my blood thyroid level is normal. Over the past 5 months, at Emory....

    Is there any chance of developing cataract even after a cataract surgery?

    Hi, I am a native of Canada. I am 24 years old. I was experiencing severe headache for days. And I even had water coming from my left eye. I was not able to use my mobile and computer for a long time and I was not able to read books clearly. Everything seems to be blurry. I was recently diagnosed during a routine checkup as having a cataract in my left eye. I am worried about the development of an early cataract. The doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. But I don't like wearing eyeglasses. So....

    5 Years Unable To Work With Computer Screens Due To Intense Visual Migraines. Desperate For Answers.

    Good evening, I will try and be compact. In 2013, after a long period of emotional difficulty in which I used extended video gaming as a balm, I experienced an intense migraine.

This has affected my life enormously and I have been unable to pursue most avenues of employment, especially those related to my skillset and education. The migraine begins with a feeling or....
