See eye doctor: You may be light sensitive due to low pigment. Be sure to wear sun glasses. Also, dry eyes will make you light sensitive. Use artificial tears to lubricate the eyes while waiting to see a good eye doc. ...Read more

I would like to know if our eyes did not have lens, would we see things upside down?

I would like to know if our eyes did not have lens, would we see things upside down?

No: If your eye did not have a lens your vision would be very blurry. The lens helps to refract (focus) light onto the retina. It does not invert images. Some people live without a lens in thier eye (aphakia) and use strong glasses or contact lenses to improve vision. ...Read more

How can our eyes see things and what has happened to your eyes if you are nearsighted?

Nearsightness: Means the focusing parts of your eyes are naturally too strong. This make the distance vision blurry and the near vision clear. Glasses can help readjust the focusing power of your eyes, so that distance vision can also be clear. ...Read more

I cannot sleep because when I close my eyes I see things that are haunting me, due to a movie I watched. What would you suggest I do and what is it?

I cannot sleep because when I close my eyes I see things that are haunting me, due to a movie I watched. What would you suggest I do and what is it?

Change the channel: Recall a pleasant experience and have it ready to replace the movie memory. If you simply try to stop the movie memory w/out having something to replace it with it will be more difficult to get it off you mind. Nature wants to fill a vacuum. Peace and good health. ...Read more

I see things in my eyes (black things floating) specially when I wake up or when im using the computer.?

Floaters: This sounds like floaters. They occur when the gel that fills the back of your eye starts to naturally liquify (like when you get water on the surface of a bowl of jell-o that's left out for a while). The gel collpses in on itself, creating water-filled cracks and "pools". Bits of gel trapped in these pools bounce around, and you see floaters. If they are new or multople, have a dilated eye exam. ...Read more

Things are blurry when I see I far, but not very far but is it okay to have glasses when I have my both eyes open but I see clearly?

Eye strain?: These symptoms may be consistent with eye strain from early presbyopia (common in the early to mid 40s). A full exam with an eye MD along with measurement for possible bifocal glasses will reveal the exact problem and best solution. ...Read more

Why do I sometimes see "floaty" things in my eyes? I wear contacts, but it seems like they're there even when my contacts are out. No pain or irritation; just curious what I could be seeing and whether it's a sign of a potential problem (or that I'm not

Why do I sometimes see "floaty" things in my eyes? I wear contacts, but it seems like they're there even when my contacts are out. No pain or irritation; just curious what I could be seeing and whether it's a sign of a potential problem (or that I'm not

Floaters: Floaters are thickenings in the vitreous jelly inside the eye. They are common with age, myopia, inflammation, trauma, and other issues. They are benign and do not damage your vision. Rarely, they can cause retinal tears which may require laser treatment. Otherwise, no treatment is needed. In very rare cases, the floaters can become dense enough to block vision and may need surgical removal. ...Read more

With bad anxiety. When I fall asleep at night just for a little while & wake up I see things move on the wall. Then close my eyes tightly & its gone?

Normal hallucination: Hallucinations prior to falling asleep (hypnogogic) or when just waking up (hypnopompic) are normal. They may be more frequent when under the influence of drugs or meds or sleep deprived due to anxiety. It is probably related to coming out of dream state. ...Read more

Is it normal to have hallucinations when on thyroid meds? I think I see things out of the cornrr of my eyes!

Is it normal to have hallucinations when on thyroid meds? I think I see things out of the cornrr of my eyes!

Check optic nerve!: Please see an eyemd to rule out any retinal condition. Thyroid eye disease does not cause hallucinations, but can cause optic nerve compression. A visual field exam and color vision test can help. If these are normal, then discuss with your family physician and consider psychology consult. ...Read more

Refraction: You probably need a refraction - the procedure to determine your need for eyeglasses. Night blur is a common first symptom of a need for eyeglasses. Make an appointment with an ophthalmologist. ...Read more

I have blepharitis and this morning I wokeup with my eyes burning and lots of little things covering up my eye so I see blurry how can I fix it?

I have blepharitis and this morning I wokeup with my eyes burning and lots of little things covering up my eye so I see blurry how can I fix it?

Oil glands.: Blepharitis is all about eyelid oil glands. Get them to put out more oil as well as the right kind of oil and this will help in many ways to control blepharitis. You need to work with an ophthalmologist who can guide you in treating this condition. Management includes heat, massage, the proper lubricant, such as systane balance, throughout the day, and an ointment at bedtime such as erythromycin. ...Read more

Not sure: Your symptoms could be from vitreous opacities floating in the fluid in the back of the eye. These are usually nothing more than an annoyance. It is important, however, for you to have your eyes examined to rule out any retinal problem, such as a detachment or tear. ...Read more

Whenever you close your eyes, you can still see images, how and why is that?

Whenever you close your eyes, you can still see images, how and why is that?

Afterimage: This is called an entopic phenomenon. An example is when you can see floaters, or your own blood vessels when staring at bright light thru eyes closed. The cells in retina are excited after a flash of lightning that they continue to send message to brain. Kinda like when you burn your hand, feels hot even seconds later. ...Read more

Why do we see shapes and colors when we close our eyes after looking at a light?

Who can see patterns when they close their eyes tightly at night?

Who can see patterns when they close their eyes tightly at night?

Most people: Squeezing the eyelids tightly shut puts pressure on the eyeballs. The pressure transmits to the retina (the film layer of the eye), which responds the only way it knows how - by telling the brain that it is seeing light. This is a normal response; however, exerting this much pressure on the eye for prolonged periods can potentially lead to vision problems. ...Read more

Sometimes I can see blue and green spots when I close my eyes. Is this normal?

Entoptic phenomena: In most cases this represents what is called entoptic phenomena, where you eyes send false signals to the brain. The retina is normally stimulated by light, but touch stimuli to the eye or even the quick temporary changes in eye pressure that occur with eyelid closure can cause these to occur. Your retina can also send afterimage signals when going from light to dark. ...Read more

For distance glasses I have to adjust my eyes to see close up clearly. Is that normal?

For distance glasses I have to adjust my eyes to see close up clearly. Is that normal?

Middle age sight: You are entering the age of what is medically termed presbyopia, - the inability of the eye to focus at near which diminishes from the 40s to the 50s. It is why drug stores have racks of reading glasses. If you need glasses for distance, then you will have to see your ophthalmologist who can prescribe a bifocal which will allow vision at far and near without taking off the eyeglasses. ...Read more
