New Glasses Distorted Vision
Distorted vision often called metamorphopsia, is the perception of visual images having a wavy, slanted or irregularity that you know shouldn't appear that way. The causes usually are from irregularities on the inner lining of the eye called the retina, but may also arise from corneal opacities or dystrophies, cataracts, refractive ...Read more
Lt.eye mac.pucker.Corrected vision 20/40 µpsia.Amsler grid nl.Corrected vision 20/40.Age 69.Could the macuar pucker cause micropsia?Rt. eye20/30.
Micropsia: Yes, it can if the macular pucker is severe enough. Micropsia is a condition in which objects are perceived to be smaller than they actually are. Micropsia can be caused by optical factors (such as wearing glasses), by distortion of images in the eye (such as optically, via swelling of the cornea or from changes in the shape of the retina such as from retinal edema,macular degeneration, and more ...Read more
Migraine: I am guessing that you have intermittant episodes of odd lights in oval patterns with some greying out of the vision lasting 2 minutes to 2 hours. This is the pattern of occipital migraine. If it clears completly in between, that is almost cerainly what is happening. If something else is happening, or the vision does not return, then see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more
See an eye doc ASAP: Any new onset floaters with decreased vision requires a dilated examination with an eye doctor immediately. Though it is often only floaters (a normal change that causes the gel in the back of the eye to develop small cracks), it must be differentiated from a retinal hole, tear or detachment - which all require immediate treatment. See an eye doctor right away. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Refractive Error: Yes, hyperopia and astigmatism are forms of refractive error that if not corrected with glasses or contact lenses can result in diminished or possibly even distorted vision. A detailed examination with an eye care provider is helpful in determining the extent of your refractive error and whether glasses, contacts, or other options will be helpful to you. ...Read more
Toric contact lenses: Check with your optomitrist who prescribed them. Some times the fit and ride of contact requires multiple visits and changes. It is not usually a perfect scenario. Particularluy after every blink there could be a 1 second distortion while the contact lens settles back into the right position. ...Read more
Hv mild myopic astigmatism + nystagmus. Far vision perfect w glasses. Near vision slightly blurry with glasses even before presbyopia set in. Why?
Macular pucker.with distortion. Close-up vision great, distance vision not as good. Could macular pucker impair distance vision only and not close up?
Not likely : Macular pucker affects the retina which detects images at any distance. The lens and cornea focus images at various distances onto the retina. So a problem at only one distance usually is a problem other than the retina. However, some people may only notice distortion from a macular pucker at a particular distance. A review of your records/images would help clarify. ...Read more
See an eye MD: It might be nothing or something as simple as a migraine. But it also could represent a blocked blood vessel that supplies the eye (almost like a mini stroke). You need to see an ophthalmologist who will determine whether any additional testing is required. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Use monovision w/some blurring at distance & computer. Could single vision contact for distance eye & bifocal contact for near eye improve vision?
Monovision: is very effective of roost people. Variations for the optimum distance (far, intermediate and near) can be obtained through single vision contact lenses or a combination of single vision lens and multifocal lens. Your eye care provider will be able to determine the power and variations from your examination. Be sure to verbalize your needs and illustrate to him/her the distances involved. ...Read more
Mult reasons: Either: 1. They don't cover your eyes completely, or. 2. The refraction isn't completely around the edge (doubt). ...Read more
Maybe,maybe not: Ambliopia (lazy eye) is the process where the brain ignores the "camera" picture from one eye because it is less clear or causes double vision. It can sometimes be improved if the weaker eye is strengthened (glasses), the stronger eye is patched or if the eye is lined up better with surgery. If the process has gone on too long, the brain ignores the fix & surgery is simply cosmetic. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Could be many things: If this happens, see a doctor immediately. It could be decompensation of a pre-existing muscle balance problem. It could also be a stoke that can cause this, but less likely and far more dangerous. Again to sort this out, please have an exam. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
