Can The Wrong Prescription Of Glasses Cause Visual Disturbance
Causes blur: If the prescription in your eyeglasses is wrong or out of date, you will not see as well but you will do no harm to the eyes. Your eyes will function as best as they can under any circumstances, even with the wrong prescription.
Possible: You can have visual disturbance but double vision is unlikely.
Plenty: Optic neuritis (decreased visual acuity, pain on eye movements, decreased color intensity), double vision (lesions in brain stem), nystagmus, abnormal tracking, even par planitis and uveitis. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. If you are experiencing visual problems, start with your eye doc and go from there.
Full evaluation: Migraines don't occur daily. The word "migraine" doesn't mean "bad headache". You have chronic daily headaches, which can be very difficult to treat. The key is proper diagnosis of the situation. Why do you headaches? You need a full medical evaluation to assertain the underlying the reasons you are in pain, then treat the cause.See 2 more doctor answers
Visual disturbance of red traffic lights & tail lightslooking like a circle of small lights with black in the centre for a month now. Possible cause?
Refractive/Cataract: You're probably seeing visual disturbances from cataracts or refractive changes in your eyes. A Corneal scar that is centrally located could also contribute to visual disturbances, as well as many other surface disorders. All these visual changes would be most noticeable at night. Now an examination would be the best way to determine the most like cause (s).
EEG: You clearly need a lot of care and attention! If your body is making too much insulin the doctors (including surgeons) need to find the area of your pancreas producing too much insulin and schedule removal of that area. Your seizures may slow down but you will need careful follow up with a neurologist. Please keep me posted.
Possibly: It depends upon how off the prescription is. Moderate difference from the true power can be compensated well by most eyes. Only if the prescription is way off can you experience blur and doubling of vision.
What would cause visual disturbance during intense exercise? It seems to coincide with high blood pressure as the blurring throbs with each pulse.

I have intermittant pain in my eye that feels similiar to a scratched cornea-no visual disturbance. What could this be a symptom of?
See an eye doctor: It could be dry eye, a scratched cornea, a foriegn body in the eye, or possibly an infection. If you've had a scratched cornea in that same eye before, sometimes the area of old injury can intermittantly open back up to give a similar foreign body sensation.See 2 more doctor answers
After a couple of migraines now have visual disturbance at night where street lights a block or more away look like circles of lights w black centre?
Recently had a visual disturbance. A part of my vision went dark and I couldn't focus, followed by a quick flash of red light. Normal now, what was it?
Last month I had 2 migraines within 2 days my migraines have changed from zig zag lines centre to visual disturbance, should I be worried?
Migraine auras: The exact character of the visual auras does vary from headache to headache. My concern would focus on the frequency of your events. 2 in 2 days suggests possible future "chronic daily migraines", and would consider a preventative intervention.
I am taking verapamil for visual disturbance/headache but my doctor is suspecting simple partial seizures. Would the verapamil reduce these?
Verapamil: Verapamil is a calcium channel blocker and is typically used for vascular related diseases (e.g., hypertension). There are calcium channels on neurons that may be affected, but this may be a theoretic pharmacological drug target. Some headaches, however, are thought to have a vascular etiology, so I suspect that is the target. I recommend asking your physician.
I get a lot of visual disturbance. ..white wiggly lines moving across visual field and dots with mild blurring. Always worse after eating fruit. Ideas?
Saw neuro after visual disturbance, probable migraine. MRI to r/o mass, found 3mm hyperintensity ant. Parietal subcortical. Ref'd to MS specialist?
Depends: There are many lesions that appear on imaging as non-specific and can be seen in many lesions. There are exact criteria that are present which makes MRI useful in the diagnosis, discussing with another specialist might discern or eliminate this diagnosis. The finding on MRI is more consistent with migraine.See 2 more doctor answers
