Lumps in neck hard for over a year now and moving soft ones one left side of neck and pressure behind left ear white flashes and blurred vision in eye?

What does it mean when you have a dark rim around iris eyes are different color pressure from eyes up to top of head blurred vision and a sore nose?

Unclear: See your doctor. The area around the iris s the remainder of the eye known as the sclera. This is the white portion of the eye. If there is some coloration this needs to be evaluated by ophthalmologist. This area can be injected or red in appearance to inflammation. Part of your symptoms sound like presymptoms of shingles.

Ad eye floaters for years but on and of I get pressure in them and hurt to touch could this be eye tumours blurred vision up close reading glass it'ok?

Different symptoms: Floaters don't have "pressure-like" feelings. It sounds like you're experiencing pain when pushing on your eyes. Well don't do it then. Blurred vision could be a need for new glasses. You're old enough for reading glasses, which are fine. Because your symptoms are varied, an exam would be very helpful to sort them out. An eye tumor would be a very unlikely concern, but again an exam will help. ...Read more

Blurred vision w/prescription glasses on have astigmatism & 4 or more migraines/week w/extreme pressure sharp pain over right eye. What could it be?

See a good vision doctor and/or your GP for exam if new lenses don't remove the pain (s). Don't wait - this is not likely to just change back and there's no need to suffer. ...Read more

I have been suffering with constant headache and pressure/pain behind my left eye and down my face, blurry vision and spaced out for nearly a year now. After a Mri scan they discovered a 2cm cyst on my left maxillary sinus. Could this be the cause?
