I have floaters and started seeing a green spot in my left eyes vision and a red one in my right eye. I only see them when looking to my left or right?

Floaters to look for: Floaters are usually nothing to worry about -- most people have some. But they can be a sign of inflammation in the eye or sometimes a sign of a retinal tear. If they are worsening or associated with lightning-like flashes of light then they should be checked out. Or if you are seeing lights in the center of your vision with floaters, that should be checked by an ophthalmologist as well. ...Read more

Why am I seeing prisms around my vision?

Migraine: You are probably experiencing occipital migraine. You can confirm this by seeing if the same things occurs in each eye when you cover one and then the other.

Is there a reason why I am seeing little sparks in my vision?

Can be normal: Light flashes or sparks can be nonspecific and not dangerous. They can indicate vitreous traction or may actually be coming from irritation in the brain in the visual tracts. If the sparks occur in the temperol periphery it may be secondary to changes in the eye. Though these are usually normal findings it may be helpful to have a doctor check you if they continue. ...Read more

I'm seeing squiggly lines in vision. Do I need to get new glasses?

No: Curved, wavy lines moving in your vision are likely to be floaters, and if not a new symptom, are likely to be completely benign. New onset floaters, however, warrant an evaluation with an eye md, to rule out a retinal tear. On the other hand, if objects known to be straight are now curved (like door frames), a macular condition could be the cause. This also warrants an evaluation with an eye md. ...Read more

What should I do if I keep seeing things move at the corner of my vision?

What should I do if I keep seeing things move at the corner of my vision?

Depends how much: Most people will have a little bit of this occasionally. Some people are even more perceptively sensitive. It is as if the peripheral vision is hyperactive. We all have these vigilance brain functions on automatically. Insomnia, isolation, substance abuse and brain illnesses each can increase this brain "hyper"- activity. If it continues or bothers you, see a doctor to evaluate it. ...Read more

I began seeing sparkles in my vision. It lasted for like 30 seconds but directly after I began feeling shooting pains in my head. What's happening???

Likely migraine: Sounds like a migraine with a preceding aura. Unfortunately these are relatively common for some & you may need to get help managing them if this becomes a pattern. You can try common pain meds but sleep is one sure way to get rid of one. I wouldn't be worried you have a deadly problem. Although it is no fun. ...Read more

Can you cure seeing bright lights in your vision? I was looking and seen a bright light from the sun reflecting on my tv and now I always see it? Help

See your eye doctor: Usually when there's reflection of the sun off glass that you happen to catch, it does leave an after image that usually fades. Depending on how long you were staring at it, or if was momentary, will be good to share with your eye specialist. People who stare at the sun can cause another condition which is solar retinopathy. In either case, you want to have your eye specialist examine your eyes, and do a dilated exam so they can see your retina. ...Read more

What are causes of having cloudy vision and seeing halos?

What are causes of having cloudy vision and seeing halos?

Need a diagnosis: Cloudy vision and halos can generally be caused by anything that interferes with light entering the eye, including hazy glasses or contact lenses. However, cataract is a common cause of this, and a less common cause is a scar of the cornea. Corneal swelling (edema) typically causes a rainbow type of halo, and this can be more serious, as it can occur with greatly elevated eye pressure. ...Read more
