Floaters, blurred vision, headaches and tenderness in temple around left eye - blind in right eye from birth. Eye tests ok - any ideas as to causes?

Check sed rate: You are a bit young for this but I'd check an ESR (sedimentation rate). If elevated consider temporal arteritis. Typically the temporal artery is nodular and tender. The diagnosis is confirmed with a biopsy of a small slice of the artery. One can see scalp tenderness with migraine but it does not typically present in the 5 the decade. See a doctor right away if you think it may be TA ...Read more

Blurred vision in right eye and new floaters?

Blurred vision in right eye and new floaters?

See an eye doc ASAP: Any new onset floaters with decreased vision requires a dilated examination with an eye doctor immediately. Though it is often only floaters (a normal change that causes the gel in the back of the eye to develop small cracks), it must be differentiated from a retinal hole, tear or detachment - which all require immediate treatment. See an eye doctor right away. ...Read more

I had a sudden onset of blurred vision in right eye, dizziness, nausea, and felt faint. What could this be symptomatic of?

Low blood pressure?: If this occurred after a change in position (lying to standing) this could be low blood pressure (postural hypotension), this type of blurry vision only lasts seconds. If the vision loss lasted >15-30 min with associated flashing lights or headache this could be an ocular migraine. Due to your age I do not suspect other more serious conditions. If it happens again see your doctor to check your bp. ...Read more

Why am I getting blurred vision in the corner of my right eye?

? migraine/other: Peripherally blurred vision possibly with a sawtoothed pattern of light on the fringe of the blurry area may be an aura of a migraine most likely. Also of concern is a potential retinal tear/detachment, vitreous detachment, vascular event, or even a refractive or corneal issue. Obviously you need an examination to rule out more serious and treatable ocular problems. See an eye md. ...Read more

I had an right eye surgery due to piantball. Therefore now I have a blurred vision, will I get my vision back as its been 2 weeks after the surgery.?

Maybe: It really depends on the extent of the damage and the type of surgery you had. Any damage to cornea and lens of your eye potentially could return with surgery and healing (again depending on the extent of the damage), however damage to the retina carries far worse prognosis. Your eye doctor would be able to give a better answer. ...Read more

Do I have astigmatism? I have been seeing flashing lights in my vision (for a year now) and now I am starting to get a blurred vision in my right eye; starting from the outside corner. My school nurse had me flush my eye out this morning but that only hel

Astigmatism: Astigmatism is due to the shape of the eye and is usually present at a young age. This problem sounds more acute to me and I would seek the advise of an ophthamologist at this point. You need a good retinal exam to rule out why the outside corner of the eye is blurred. The fact that you have flashing lights is a retinal symptom and not astigmatism. You may have a retinal tear or detachment and this should be checked asap. It might be vitrerous floaters which is a benign condition, but this is not astigmatism. Ask your gp for the name of a general ophthalmogist and when you call alert the staff to your symptoms. Best of luck. ...Read more

Your sensory and fatigue issues are non-specific, but do need to be assessed. Have you had MRI studies to date? Have you had referral to neurology?
