Concerned about my mothers eye sight- cataracts & losing vision in eye during auras?

See an eye doctor: Cataracts are clouding of the natural lens of the eye. They are a reversible cause of decreased vision and should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist/cataract surgeon if they are interfering with vision. Auras describe a phenomenon of scintillating lights that begin on the side and move centrally. This is associated with migraines or just ocular migraines. See your dr. To rule out other causes. ...Read more

How does glaucoma cause eye floaters?

How does glaucoma cause eye floaters?

It does not cause it: Just like within the body there are many parts, although one organ, the eye is very similar with many parts as well. Where floaters occur in the eye is separate from the area where the effects of glaucoma occur, which is the optic nerve. Floaters are typically black spots that appear real like gnats in front of you. Vision loss from glaucoma is like dark patches in vision that don't go away. ...Read more

Myopia resulted in floaters n flashes.What is good solution for it.Wearing glasses?My eye checkup doesn't show retinal tear or detachment.Pls help

Floaters/Flashes: Floaters and flashes are caused by changes in the vitreous gel of the eye. Flashes usually go away within a few weeks, but floaters tend to persist for much longer. Over time the floaters tend to be less bothersome, but this is a gradual process that's different for each individual. Unfortunately glasses will not help. If the floaters or flashes worsen you should get rechecked for a retinal tear. ...Read more

Want to take  supplement for vision health.  Areds2? Have floaters, dry eye & ocular migraine. Take Carlson finest fish oil daily +multi vitamin.

Good diet: If your diet is deficient in green and red veggies, 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zea xanthine is good. The AREDS2 formulation is good for preventing intermediate dry macular degeneration from progressing to the wet form. You don't need it if you don't already have macular degeneration. Omega 3 is good for dry eye and depression. Multivits are worthless if you have a reasonable diet. Best wishes. ...Read more

Vision loss in one eye getting worse. Blurring, floaters, night driving problems?

Vision loss in one eye getting worse. Blurring, floaters, night driving problems?

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. ...Read more
