Spots before eyes: Please see your eye doctor. You need to make sure you do not have an eye disease or retina problem. Peace and good health.

Unfortunately not!: Although various parts of the eye can be replaced by human transplantation or implants (cornea and lens for instance), eye transplantation is not yet possible.

What might cause early morning eye problems?

Eye drops: The most common early morning eye problem is due to overnight dryness. I am assuming that your vision clears quickly and you are comfortable most of the day and evening. If so, you can put a gel drop like theragel into your eyes at bedtime and this will coat and protect the eye and help in the morning. If the vision is bad or there is redness/pain, see your ophthalmologist.

Regular eye exams: Your vision is a function of your inheritance, circumstances of fetal development and birth, and exposure to visual stimuli, trauma and disease. You cannot help your inheritance or development, but get regular eye exams, eat a balanced diet, minimize uv light exposure and protect your eyes in hazardous situations.

Sure: I've seen them priced with lifetime touch-ups. I see folks that had them in their 20s wearing glasses again a few years later. You get older. Things change.

Yes: Generally scans are read within 24 hours. If it is a emergency ct it should be read immediately to rule out a stroke or bleed. The scan may have been read and sent to your doctor who has the results.
