Night glare with crt contact lenses?

Ortho-keratology: Crt or ortho-k contact lenses act as all contact lenses do, gently shaping the cornea so that it focuses distant objects better.

Lasik - night vision.?

Some get glare: Some patients will notice glare or "haloes" around lights at night following lasik surgery. In the majority of cases, it is not severe and dissipates over several months following the procedure.

Incipient cataract : Early lens changes typically cause glare and star bursts .However, at age 30 corneal pathology can cause visual symptoms. Tears are a treatment for dry eye but not a cure.

Vision loss in one eye getting worse. Blurring, floaters, night driving problems?

Floaters: 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. ...Read more
