A 21-year-old female asked:

Ive always had astigmatism in both eyes, so ive always seen a faint ghost outline of certain objects or people, but usually glasses would solve it. ive noticed that the outline has gotten worse, im worried that its a brain tumor. is this possibl?

Glasses: Please see your eye doctor. Our eyes change over time and you may need a new prescription. There are many possible causes for your symptoms and a tumor is low on the list but your doctor can help you rule that out. Peace and good health.
