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.

Check sed rate: You are a bit young for this but I'd check an ESR ( sedimentation rate). If elevated consider temporal arteritis. Typically the temporal artery is nodular and tender. 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

Eye spasm for the past one week. Right eye only, below eye brow ,eye lid area?

Try reducing the stress/stimulant factors, and get an eye exam for the other causes. ...Read more

Lid Myokymia: Twitching of the lid is usually associated with fatigue or dry eyes, but any irritation of the trigeminal nerve (CN 5) could cause a reflex contraction of the orbicularis oculi muscle (CN 7 - facial nerve) , resulting in a fasciculation of the lid. In most cases this is benign, and relieved with rest and artificial tears. See an ophthalmologist for an eye examination if persists with new glasses. ...Read more

Blurred vision in one eye, headaches, muscle twitches, dark/yellow circles around eyes. Cat scan of brain & blood work normal. Sound serious?

See an eye doc: Even though cat scan normal, you should still be seen by an ophthalmologist given your symptoms especially if they are progressive. It could be as simple as needing an updated pair of glasses if this is just eye strain(which can cause blurred vision, headaches, and stress related twitching around eyes), but it needs to be ruled out because it could be more serious. ...Read more

See an MD: Are you diagnosed with seizure disorder? It's normal to feel groggy and 'out of it' for a while after a seizure, but severe headaches don't necessarily go with seizures and would need to be worked up by an md. See an md, because some seizure disorders are life-threatening if not controlled. A neurologist would be best suited for this. ...Read more

Eye twitching: I'm an ENT and I've never heard of nasal steroid spray causing this, but that doesn't mean it's not possible - just very unlikely. Eye twitching can be due to nervousness, vitamin or mineral deficiency (like calcium or Vit. D), nervous tic, 'blepharospasm,' or a neurologic condition. It might just be transient spasms that go away without good reason. A neurologist can resolve it. ...Read more
