Sorry guys! Another eye question…
I had blurring and pain in my right eye in August. I went to the optician who did a thorough check and said that these symptoms were not optical so must be neurological. It also became apparent while I was there that I couldn’t keep my eyes in focus for more than a second or two before they drifted out of focus and I saw a ‘shadow’ of what I was looking at.
Since then, my right eye did improve, but is still blurry at times, and the inability to keep things in focus is still as bad, if not worse.
I have also started seeing things that aren’t there in my periphary vision, mostly moving things (like something crawling across the floor!).
Now, I have noticed that I keep getting a small ‘blind’ spot in my right eye on and off (always in the same place), just for a second or two and then it just disappears. Also, when I close my eyes, I sometimes get a bright light the same size and in the same place.
My question is, should I go back to the optician and tell him about this ‘blind’ spot, although it is only happening about 10 times a day and only for a quick flash, or should I just wait until I see the Neuro in January?
Any advice would be appreciated.
