Lights Are Hazy
Not usually: Cataracts cause halos/glare especially when driving at night, blurry vision, loss of contrast sensitivity (decreased contrast between objects & background ) & decreased vision: even on; these symptoms worse with time. Flashing lights usually due to vitreous changes, retinal traction, hole, detachment, or brain blood flow issues/migraines; More info: [email protected] ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Interesting question: Flashing lights from a vitreous traction which might lead to a retinal tear or detachment are usually described as white. Orange or red floaters (some describe flashes) may actually be blood from a ruptured vessel due to the traction. The flashes do not necessarily mean you are going to get a detachment. But get an exam! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Debris in back of ey: Floaters are debris, usually from eye renewal or condensations of the vitreous gel which fills the back of the eye. If they are located in the axis of vision, they may be seen in certain circumstances as floating objects in space like flying insects. If they appear suddenly or there are many or you have light flashes associated, then see your ophthalmologist immediately. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Vitreous separation: Most likely this is a symptom of vitreous separation. It may be associated with flashes of light in the peripheral vision. Although usually not dangerous, a vitreous separation can occasionally lead to retinal tears and even less frequently to retinal detachment. If this happens, it is prudent to be examined by an eyemd, especially if you are at high risk, such as being highly nearsighted. ...Read more

Seeing starbusts big ones and rainbow halos around certain white lights doctor said it isn't cataracts , certain lights only big starbusts and halos?
Vitreous detachment: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. Wait one year then consider surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In regards to retinal detachment, symptoms are red eye, blurry vision, black spots and lights, pain at times, noticeable dimness all in one eye only
Guarded Prognosis: Pain and red eye usually aren't associated with retinal detachment unless it is chronic or unless the eye has inflammation and the detachment is caused by a fluid build-up instead of a hole. Given your history there are other things that can dim vision, such as a blocked vessel. You should be carefully evaluated by a retina specialist to optimize your chances of recovery. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Need a diagnosis: Cloudy vision and halos can generally be caused by anything that interferes with light entering the eye, including hazy glasses or contact lenses. However, cataract is a common cause of this, and a less common cause is a scar of the cornea. Corneal swelling (edema) typically causes a rainbow type of halo, and this can be more serious, as it can occur with greatly elevated eye pressure. ...Read more

Headaches, vision change, floaters, visual snow, halos, starburts and glare could all of these symptoms combined be brain related ?
Probably not: The most common symptom of vitreous change with age is the production of multiple floaters generally settling down to a few. Night glare and light scattering is a more common symptom of cataract and corneal changes, and also uncorrected need for eyeglasses. See your ophthalmologist if you have any of these symptoms to get the best diagnosis. ...Read more

I wokeup a month ago and my vision was hazy and unfocused . I could no longer see the details I saw the day before ophtamologist was no help?
Second opinion: I'm never satisfied without an explanation for blurry or decreased vision causes. Sometimes further testing is necessary to elucidate the cause(s). A second opinion can be valuable. There are many reasons why vision can blur or be defocused. At your age it may be refractive, migraine, dry eyes, medication, or other. An examination by another ophthalmologist is advisable. Good luck. ...Read more
Lordotic view shows minimal hazy infiltrates in the left apex. Consider minimal PTB of undetermined activity. Kindly explain it to me. Thank you?
Chest x-ray: The presence of the so-called hazy infiltrates in the the top of the left upper lobe has caused the radiologist reading the film to suggest that you may have tuberculosis.
