I see a dark spot in the middle of my field of vision plus a bunch of new floaters?

I see a dark spot in the middle of my field of vision plus a bunch of new floaters?

Floaters: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. Wait one year then consider surgery. ...Read more

Upon waking or opening my eyes, i see a small transparent red spot in the center of my vision lasting 1-2 seconds. Should i be concerned?

Upon waking or opening my eyes, i see  a small transparent red  spot in  the center of my vision lasting   1-2  seconds. Should i be concerned?

Red spot noticeable: It is not common to see a red spot when you awaken. And if you see any red or pink spots, you should go to your eye doctor and have it examined. Through a dilated fundoscopic examination, they can pinpoint what is causing it, and what needs to be done, or if it just needs to be monitored. Yes, be concerned, and get a second opinion if you need to. ...Read more

There's a small bright spot around the center of my vision. Could my congested nose and sinus problems be the cause?

Not sinus related: It is very doubtful that this is related to congestion or sinus problems. Instead, it may be a retinal problem, or may be a visual migraine if the symptoms lasted only a few minutes. If the symptoms are persisting, see an eye doctor to rule out vision threatening problems. ...Read more

Is the blind or gray spot from macula degeneration always in dead center of vision or can they be off-center?

Exactness: Only the devices used by professionals can measure the exact area of disease, but I expect it may not always be 'dead center'. Have a good exam by an opthamologist. Best wishes! ...Read more

Sudden onset kalidascope vision, dark spot in vision accompanied with sudden irritability, chronic neck pain, dull headaches, all on left side.

Migraine?: All signs of possible migraine headache. Would recommend seeing a headache specialist to see if they may help. Sometimes pain may emanate from the neck and if not better may consider a neck evaluation. Typically though neck pain will not affect the vision. ...Read more
