Shooting pain on one spot on my head that comes out of nowhere and at the same time my vision gets blurry. Wasn't injured so what can be causing this?

Shooting pain on one spot on my head that comes out of nowhere and at the same time my vision gets blurry. Wasn't injured so what can be causing this?

Hard to say: The usual question that people are concerned about is whether this might be a manifestation of a brain tumor or an aneurysm. This is not the usual presentation for these entities. However, it is a good idea to observe this and take notes that you can present to your doctor to help him/her figure this out. The nature of the pain, the blurred vision-what brings it on, how long does it last etc.? ...Read more

Upon waking or opening my eyes, I see a small transparent red spot in the center of my vision lasting 1-2 seconds. Should I be concerned?

Upon waking or opening my eyes, I see a small transparent red spot in the center of my vision lasting 1-2 seconds. Should I be concerned?

Red spot noticeable: It is not common to see a red spot when you awaken. And if you see any red or pink spots, you should go to your eye doctor and have it examined. Through a dilated fundoscopic examination, they can pinpoint what is causing it, and what needs to be done, or if it just needs to be monitored. Yes, be concerned, and get a second opinion if you need to. ...Read more

There's a small bright spot around the center of my vision. Could my congested nose and sinus problems be the cause?

There's a small bright spot around the center of my vision. Could my congested nose and sinus problems be the cause?

Not sinus related: It is very doubtful that this is related to congestion or sinus problems. Instead, it may be a retinal problem, or may be a visual migraine if the symptoms lasted only a few minutes. If the symptoms are persisting, see an eye doctor to rule out vision threatening problems. ...Read more

Have a thorough eval: Good evening. Because the possibilities are numerous, you should really contact your doctor for further eval. Several causes readily come to mind (like a transient ocular migraine), but there are many other possibilities such as a problem with the circulation to your retina. Please contact your doctor. Best of luck. ...Read more

Red spot (bloodshot) outer part of left eye for 3 days. Off and on blurry vision. Eye drops don't help anymore?

Bruise?: This sounds like a subconjuctival hemorrhage, which is essentially a bruise on the whites of the eyes. This may cause some dryness and lead to fluctuating vision. The treatment is OTC artificial tears for symptomatic relief as the blood re-absorbs. You should see an eye MD to confirm diagnosis and treat accordingly. ...Read more

Doc found a black spot behind my eye said it could be a freckle sending me for 2nd opinion. Seeing floaters n blurry vision eyepain is this normal?

No: The eye pain and floaters are probably not related to the 'freckle' and are not normal.
A choridal nevus is a freckle in the choroid the layer under the retina covering the inside of the eye. Most are benign but need to be monitored. A retinal exam and a bscan ultrasound can give clues if it is a melanoma (malignant tumor). A second opinion is a good idea in this case. ...Read more
