Are Ther Glasse To Block Peripheral Vision
Maybe so: Computer programmers have needs that are different from other computer users. Age and need for glasses also play important roles. The stronger the prescription need, the more peripheral distortion exists. There are several glasses that come either with "blinders" or wrap-around lenses. Your optometrist or optician can likely build or modify a pair of glasses to accomplish your goal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When you look at someone's face, you can still see their hand, even though you are not looking directly at it. When you are walking through a doorway, you are not looking at the sides, or looking directly at the threshold, but you see it through your peripheral vision. Anything outside of your direct focus spot, is considered peripheral. Which can be measured ...Read more
Glaucoma with 30% optic nerve damage. No peripheral vision loss. For patient to notice peripheral vision loss, how much nerve damage must there be?
Variable: This depends upon the sensitivity of the nerves under the stress of the elevated pressure in the eye. Some will loss measurable amounts of vision at 30% damage, others require more loss to detect it. There is good adaptation so it takes a sensitive person to best detect loss. Best to get treatment and avoid any loss at all. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Which laser eye surgery correct both my nearsightedness and astigmatism? Do either of the popular types of laser eye surgery, lasik or prk, fix these issues so that i'll have 20/20 vision or close to it? I can't wear contacts; i've worn glasses since i wa
Can you tell me about peripheral vision, however are vertical or horizontal prisms used for peripheral vision loss?
For motion detection: Central (macular) vision detects fine detail and colors. Peripheral vision has poor resolution but is highly sensitive to motion - it is your warning sensor for possible threats out of the center. Prisms affect both central and peripheral vision at the same time, so no prism will only change peripheral vision. Prisms are used to compensate for doubling; not a peripheral issue. ...Read more
Help for amppe acute multifocal. Happened in both eyes vision returned to one eye only. Is there anything to help other eye regain sight.
Are there any glasses that could correct the vision at least 50%?
I have albinism with eyes problems: nystagmus, astigmatism, photophobia.
Probably not: Vision in albinism is limited by the effect of the lack of pigment on the central vision which is permanently lowered. You are asking if eyeglasses can improve on your current best and that is unlikely assuming you have already seen an ophthalmologist for eyeglasses and eye evaluation. ...Read more
Can eye floaters in both eyes be the only symptom of optic neuritis? or do i need to have vision loss and eye pain.
Epiretinal membrane in 1 eye & cataracts in both. Are there any tests to determine which condition is likely causing glare & hazy vision when driving?
ERM & Cataracts: Epiretinal membranes (ERM) can affect central vision. A PAM (Potential Acuity Meter) can determine if it is just the cataract affecting general vision or the ERM. If ERM small, might still have 20/20 with PAM. Brightness acuity test (BAT): generally tells us how bad the cataract is. OCT (optical coherence tomography) tells us how significant ERM is. Frustration is in fact: still no guarantee which ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What type of neurological condition can cause blurry/dim vision? Had 6 eye exams all normal? Like I'm wearing glasses that are way too strong.
Dry eyes?: You may have dry eyes which may be helped with artificial tear. Your eye exam may be normal since eye drops are often used to dilate your pupil or numb your cornea thereby providing some liquid to your eyes. Be sure that you are seen by an ophthalmologist and not an optician. ...Read more

30 percent optic nerve damage due to open angle glaucoma pressure 31. With treatment is it likely loss of peripheral vision will be prevented?
Will "close work" (e.g., computer at work, reading, etc) be impactful to peripheral lattice retinal degeneration? Or only for myopia progression?
Not likely: There are some animal studies that suggest that intense near work in children could enhance myopia. I don't believe that mechanism is still at play by age 41. There should be no impact on lattice degeneration from computer work or reading. Lattice degeneration per se does not progress. What changes in the eye is the state of the vitreous gel and its relationship to the lattice. ...Read more
