    Symptom of Ocular migraines?

    For the last couple years, about once a month or so, I have been getting a scintillating scotoma (kaleidescope blindspot) in both eyes that slowly travels to the right eye over roughly 30 to 60 minutes before vanishing. I recently talked to my regular doctor about it and she sent me a referral to get my eyes examined. She also added in a diabetic eye exam to kill two birds with one stone. The doctor examined my eyes and found no damage to explain the blindspots, so he diagnosed me as having ocular....

    Intense, chronic pressure behind right eye

    Hello all. As I wait for insurance to come through before I go back to the doctor, I’d like to open this up to the knowledge of the masses. I’ll try to keep this long story as short as possible. My symptoms are as follows: For at least the past four years, I’ve been experiencing an intense concentrated pressure in my right temple behind my right eye. It’s chronic, altering between quite intense to rather mild, and it often spreads to the rest of my head, face, and neck. It almost feels as if some....

    Last November (2017) I was diagnosed with PVD, the pulling away of the vitreous fluid from the retina. The retina is intact so no serious complications so far. The symptoms are seeing a floater which looks like a quarter with a hole in the center and flashes of light, like a strobe to the side generally in the dark. The floater has finally moved off to the side and my brain has adjusted so that I don't even know it's there. The problem is with the flashes. When I had my first follow up in....

    Frequent Eye Swelling

    My left eye first started randomly swelling roughly 7 years ago. At that point, it was too rare an occurrence to seek medical advice (happening every couple of years or so). However, over the past year and a half, it has become too frequent to ignore. Every couple of months (although lately, every couple of weeks) my left eye will swell for no apparent reason. I can find no similarities in allergens, and I have NEVER had swelling in my right eye. Recently, I have noticed that my eye does tend to....

    Stye/Chalazion Infections?

    Hi, I was wondering if it was possible to get a stye from Fungus? I have atheletes foot and a chalazion. The chalazion has under-gone surgery, but I am worried that it may still be infected as it has been 7 weeks since I got the surgery. The chalazion has gone down quite a lot and still remains. The doctor has said it was a bacterial infection but i'm worried if it could be infected by fungus?

    Color blindness?

    I'm an 18 year old male and I've been having issues with colors for the last two years. I never had trouble before. When I was a kid i had taken color blindness tests and had no trouble, I saw everything. Around the age of 16 I started noticing I would get certain colors confused. Reds, greens and browns to be exact. When I was 17 I went to MEPS to enlist in the Army and there I failed 2 color blind tests very badly. The dot test I only got 1/14. I was given a lantern test and only got a....

    It’s a long story. You got time? I pray you do. August 2017, I tripped while hiking with my dogs Nibbler and Buddy at a local off leash county park. I was knocked out. Came to covered in blood and dirt. Pups panting hard. No one around to help. I made it home and laid down. I know, I know don’t lecture me. My husband came home six hours later and found me unresponsive. Emergency room fixes everything, right? Not so much. The “doctor” refused me an MRI or a CAT scan. He did not check my eyes. He sent....
