Best way to tell: Why you are havering these problems is to get your eyes examined by your eye care doctor. An exam will help diagnose and treat your condition.

See eye doctor soon: I am concerned that you may have a glaucoma issue and if not treated promptly may end up becoming blind. It is only prudent for you to consult an eye doctor (not an optometrist) asap.
