Yes: Especially if your normal blood pressure was much higher. If you are not taking any diuretic, one needs to check your adrenal status. On the other hand, your problem may just be from a migraine. At any rate, you need to contact your doctor to find out the cause. ...Read more

Ad eye floaters for years but on and of I get pressure in them and hurt to touch could this be eye tumours blurred vision up close reading glass it'ok?

Different symptoms : Floaters don't have "pressure-like" feelings. It sounds like you're experiencing pain when pushing on your eyes. Well don't do it then. Blurred vision could be a need for new glasses. You're old enough for reading glasses, which are fine. Because your symptoms are varied, an exam would be very helpful to sort them out. An eye tumor would be a very unlikely concern, but again an exam will help. ...Read more

A : A common cause of daily headaches is chronic sinusitis with nasal congestion. This is typically seen in the presence of allergies or asthma. A visit with a ENT (ear, nose, and throat) specialist is in order if this is a possibility. There are very effective treatments for this problem (medications, minor surgery etc.) otherwise a visit with a neurologist is not a bad idea. Best of luck. ...Read more

I have blurry vision when reading for prolonged periods. How can I fix it?

I have blurry vision when reading for prolonged periods. How can I fix it?

Blurred reading: Could be due to several possible causes. This is often due to a need for glasses, either related to an uncorrected refractive error (e.g. Astigmatism) or possibly premature age-related reading difficulties. This usually doesn't develop until after age 40, but can occur with patients at your age. You should have your eyes evaluated to help your symptoms. ...Read more

How normal would it be for reading glasses to cause blurry vision when view at a distance?

How normal would it be for reading glasses to cause blurry vision when view at a distance?

Yes: Reading glasses simply change the plane of focus of your eyes from distance to near. That's why they help with reading. Removing the glasses moves the plane of focus back to distance. When we're younger, we can do that ourselves with the lenses in our eyes. Usually, in your 40s, you start to lose that ability and need glasses to help. ...Read more

Have a thorough eval: Good evening. Because the possibilities are numerous, you should really contact your doctor for further eval. Several causes readily come to mind (like a transient ocular migraine), but there are many other possibilities such as a problem with the circulation to your retina. Please contact your doctor. Best of luck. ...Read more
