Small Blurry Spot In Vision
See an eye MD: It might be nothing or something as simple as a migraine. But it also could represent a blocked blood vessel that supplies the eye (almost like a mini stroke). You need to see an ophthalmologist who will determine whether any additional testing is required. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Blurry vision lower quarter visual field of left eye (is like a greasy film over bottom quarter of eye.) Blood pressure perfect.
Migraine: You have described a typical pattern for occipital migraine, a condition affecting the circulation to the occipital lobe - the visual information processing part of the brain. These are benign, annoying but come from nothing and lead to nothing. Most are over in 5 minutes to 1 hour. If you get another, cover one eye, then the other and you will notice the sparkles in the same 1/2 of each eye. ...Read more
??: Need a little more info about your question. I assume you're saying you have a blind spot centrally and your seeing scintillating light peripherally--typically lasting about 15 minutes, not usually associated with any other symptoms. Sounds like an acephalic migraine or ocular migrains, without headache, sometimes described as auras. Central blindspot is concerning though. See your eyemd. ...Read more
See an eye doc ASAP: Any new onset floaters with decreased vision requires a dilated examination with an eye doctor immediately. Though it is often only floaters (a normal change that causes the gel in the back of the eye to develop small cracks), it must be differentiated from a retinal hole, tear or detachment - which all require immediate treatment. See an eye doctor right away. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Large dark floater in right eye & today developed floater in left eye. Retinas ok but floaters are distorting vision. Would cognitive therapy help?
Floaters: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. Wait one year then consider surgery. ...Read more
In regards to retinal detachment, symptoms are red eye, blurry vision, black spots and lights, pain at times, noticeable dimness all in one eye only
Guarded Prognosis: Pain and red eye usually aren't associated with retinal detachment unless it is chronic or unless the eye has inflammation and the detachment is caused by a fluid build-up instead of a hole. Given your history there are other things that can dim vision, such as a blocked vessel. You should be carefully evaluated by a retina specialist to optimize your chances of recovery. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually not: Many have small floater(s). If they are in the direct line of vision (uncommon) it can be annoying. If there are no other issues with the development of the floaters such as trauma, retinal detachment, etc. (you should be evaluated to rule these out by an ophthalmologist), then floaters are benign and will not change vision and eye health in any meaningful way. ...Read more
Small circle/ring, dark shadow/"cig light coil" shaped; appears bottom or left of eye when blink fast/after light glare. Appears same spot/disappears?
Flashes ; floaters: The clear gel that fills eyeball is normally attached to all parts of the inside of the eye. As we get older it can become more liquid (watery) and detaches from the back of the retina causing flashes ; floaters. This can indicate a retinal tear. As the retina detaches, change or loss in your side vision is the next symptom. You should see your eye doctor to check the retina. ...Read more
Flashing light in right eye with blurred vision mainly on periphery pain in eye . Missing period and sickness negative test?
Gray spot in vision right eye. 2 days ago the spot only flashed. Now, it is a spot that covers my vision. Retinal tear/detachment? Or more serious?
Hemorrhage: This is probably a seepage from a small vein in the conjunctiva which creates a very thin pool of blood in the normally closed space between the transparent conjunctiva and the underlying white sclera. It may increase in size due to spread (not due to further blood leakage) but will be absorbed in 3-10 days. If it persists after than see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more
BLIND SPOT: We all have a normal blind spot, the optic nerve head. There are other pathological blind spots occurring in diseased conditions such as glaucoma, solitary retinal hemorrhages, artery or vein occlusions etc. Stress alone is unlikely to cause such blind spots, but theoretically it could contribute to worsen a preexisting condition like hypertension, which may lead to retinal hemorrhages. ...Read more
Unsure: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater".

Can a left choroidal fissure cyst of 12mm affect vision in left eye. Blurry and double vision on and off.
Not likely: cysts of the choroid fissure or plexus are a common finding and totally asymptomatic. If you have optic neuritis this is something a neurologist and ophthalmologist need to be following. It can be a symptom of possible multiple sclerosis. It can be from other causes. Did you have a MRI with and without contrast? If they are looking for MS they will do additional images - to find lesions ...Read more
