Get checked: May have been an ocular migraine, but another possibility is amaurosis fugax, related to impairment of blood supply and possibly associated with increased risk of stroke. You should have a dilated eye exam, screening for blood pressure/cholesterol and possibly additional testing such as an ultrasound of your carotid arteries. ...Read more
Definitely get exam: This could be anything from a visual migraine to a tia. The fact that the gray area is in a quadrant does suggest a possible cerebral problem (visual pathways in the brain rather than from the eye itself), but a direct problem in the eye is still possible. An eye exam by an ophthalmologist and possibly a visual field test will help to determine the cause. ...Read more

Many reasons: Its difficult to answer these kind of questions, not knowing some information. However, it could be migrains, tia, amaurosis fugax, visual changes induced by exercise, drop in blood pressure, etc. Stress in itself wouldn't cause a brief loss of vision, although it has been associated with central serous chorioretinopathy, which can cause a prolonged distortion of vision. ...Read more

Is amaurosis fugax like an actual curtain descending? A gray block covered half my one eye out of nowhere, no descending just came and left, 45 seconds. Ophthalmologist saw nothing wrong. Other ideas?
Stroke precursor: Amaurosis fugax is usually a precursor to a stroke/CVA or heart attack. It may indicate a narrowing of the carotid artery in the neck. This is an embolic event so may resolve without any further symptoms. I would seek further evaluation by your PCP ASAP, or ED if symptoms recur. ...Read more

Reduced blood: If you close your eyes really tight, not only does it make the photoreceptors in your eyes more sensitive to light, but you may also be compressing the blood vessels. This would have the effect of overstimulating the photoreceptors, causing you to have funny vision for a few seconds - grey, funny lights, etc. Hope that helps! ...Read more
I have a bit of a fuzzy spot in my eye near my iris ib botheyes. Does not affect my vision. Kind of greyish fuzzy looking. What are they?
Pinguecula: Your question does not provide enough details to be sure what you are asking. If the fuzzy spot is on the white of the eye on the nose side of what appears to be the iris, then the likelihood is that these are pinguecula. Pinguecula are a benign change in the conjunctiva most likely related to dryness and pollution. ...Read more

Don't delay. ...Read more
The whites of my eye have begun to look grey over the last few months. I'm 19. I used to have perfect vision, but due to a vitamin deficiency it died.
Extreme diet: You must be on an extreme, frankly self abusive diet. If vitamin deficiency has caused your vision to "die" then you need immediate, perhaps emergency examination by an ophthalmologist as well as consultation with a nutritionist. This may have some role in the greying of the whites of your eyes. Do not delay in seeking help for this until permanent damage occurs. ...Read more

Probably not: Increased redness of the eyes can have many causes mostly due to problems related to the eyes. Less commonly, eye redness can be related to systemic diseases that can affect the entire body. An eye examination would be a place to start. Depending on the findings, a physical examination and blood tests may also be indicated. ...Read more

Particle in vitreous:
Almost all people have some floaters. These may be remnants of blood vessels from the time of development of the eye. If you get new floaters it would be imperative to see an ophthalmologist.

Hi. I just noticed some grey spots on my 3 1/2 year old daughter's white of the eye- and only on one eye. She is 1/4 black and 3/4 Caucasian.
Most are not serious: Most of the dark spots noticed on the white part of the eye are due to the same thing that causes freckles or darker spots on the skin. There are rarer occasions where these could be due to more serious conditions and so it would be good to have your child's doctor look at them at the next visit and if they change in size or color suddenly then referral to an eye doctor ...Read more
