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

Can blurred vision be due to floaters?

Can blurred vision be due to 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.

See an eye doctor right away. ...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
