Saw Dust Eye Problems
I have anxiety. Past month I've been dealing with issues, light sensitivity, eye pain, eye discomfort, eye irritation, eye strain, and eye fatigued. Saw an Optometrist & Ophthalmologist, found dry eyes, but keep getting thoughts I'm going blind? Help
Beginning to sound: like hypochondriasis. That's when you think you have a medical condition, obsess over it, but don't really have anything physically wrong. You could have other kinds of anxiety (GAD, phobia, panic, etc.) but you'd have to go to a psychologist for an eval.

Eye Problem, Accidentally have been using antibiotic tobramycin "pink eye" drops for general dry/allergy eye issues - Can this hurt my eyes?

Ripple effect on R eye when blink/ look around. Seen 3 eye specialists. Said not related to dry eye / floater/ tear film. Then, what's the cause?
Ripple effect: Since the ripple effect occurs with blinking, the cause is on the surface of the eye. It was correct to assess the tear film because that would have been the most common cause.

Be sure to describe to your next eye MD when and how often this occurs, if you know of any allergies, if you have tried artificial tears as a treatment. ...Read more

What can cause floaters at my age other than retina/vitreous related problems?i have 6/6 vision,no trauma,inflammation ever,3 opthas said perfect eyes
Floaters: It's good to hear that your eye examination is normal. Vitreous opacities are normal to see & discover on examination. The important distinction is evaluating normal floaters from abnormally occurring floaters. The latter would require diagnosed problems with your eyes. You've indicated a normal exam. Visual phenomena seen as floater-like disturbances may be from migrainal-type events too. ...Read more

Can't tell: That's like asking, "Will a flashlight damage my eyes?" It depends on many factors, such as what one does with the light, how intense is the light, how far away is the light, whether the light is direct or indirect, etc... Neon lights are everywhere, although less common in recent years due to the increasing use of other types of lights, such as LED bulbs. ...Read more

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
