Can a left choroidal  fissure  cyst  of 12mm affect vision in left eye. Blurry and double vision on and off.

Not likely: cysts of the choroid fissure or plexus are a common finding and totally asymptomatic. If you have optic neuritis this is something a neurologist and ophthalmologist need to be following. It can be a symptom of possible multiple sclerosis. It can be from other causes. Did you have a MRI with and without contrast?

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
