Pregnancy is messing with my vision? Makes it hard to look at tvs or computers?

Yes.: Pregnancy can affect vision in many ways. It can change the power of your eyes, changing your eyeglass and especially contact lens prescription. This is harmless, and usually reverses weeks/months after delivery. Other causes can be more serious, so please see an ophthalmologist at least once before the end of next week to have them screen you. Best wishes for your upcoming childbirth! ...Read more

Why is it hard to look at a computer screen with contact lens on?

Why is it hard to look at a computer screen with contact lens on?

Dryness: When we concentrate on our computer work or reading we do not blink as often as normally and contact lenses get dry. This means also somewhat blurry and less comfortable. This is especially true in winter when air indoors is drier. Remember that contacts float on our tear film and that blinking re-wets them and the cornea with every blink, . ...Read more

I found when I look at an object for a long amount of time it gets harder to look at and it starts to show lots of white. What could be wrong?

I found when I look at an object for a long amount of time it gets harder to look at and it starts to show lots of white. What could be wrong?

Staring too long?: One may be staring at an object for too long. The human brain and the eyes it is connected to are designed to see "changes". If a person stares at a single point for too long, the same nerve endings in the back of the eyes are seeing the same spot for so long that those nerve endings don't see any "changes". When no visual changes occur, strange things start to happen in the brain's vision center. ...Read more

My eyes are blue with a golden color around the pupil. I cant find much on it and don't see it very often in others. could you please help me?

Normal: Golden color around the pupil is not uncommon in blue or other colors of the iris. It is not a disease and needs no intervention. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

If I look at a clock and blink a few times, the numbers look like they actually jump with my blinks, a lot, unless I deliberately focus and blink slow?

If I look at a clock and blink a few times, the numbers look like they actually jump with my blinks, a lot, unless I deliberately focus and blink slow?

Normal : When you blink, your eyeballs actually rotate upward (in most people with an intact Bell's phenomenon) so as to protect the cornea. As you blink very fast, as in fluttering your eyelids, it's very possible that an l.e.d light source would appear to be moving up & down. In normal situations, you would not usually pay attention to this subtlety. When blinking slowly, eyes already back in normal posi ...Read more
