Temporary Blurred Peripheral Vision
When you look at someone's face, you can still see their hand, even though you are not looking directly at it. When you are walking through a doorway, you are not looking at the sides, or looking directly at the threshold, but you see it through your peripheral vision. Anything outside of your direct focus spot, is considered peripheral. Which can be measured ...Read more
Many things!: Changes in vision, blurriness, blind spots, halos around lights, or dimness of vision should always be evaluated by a medical professional. Such changes may represent an eye disease, aging, eye injury, or a condition like diabetes that affects many organs in your body. Other potential causes of vision problems include fatigue, overexposure to the outdoors and certain medications.See 1 more doctor answer
Occipital migraine: In this type of migraine, there is a loss of a portion up to all of the vision of 1/2 of the field of vision of both eyes (check by covering one eye and then the other). Usually the greyed out loss has a shimmering surround which flickers until it disappears. These type of migraines are benign, short lasting (usually less than an hour), and cause no permanent change. No worry unless frequent.
What could be causing occasional and temporary severe blurriness in peripheral vision in one of eyes?
My brain is blank always! I have problem in concentrating. Its like im not mentally present. Sometimes my peripheral vision become blurred plz help!
Peripheral vision: Loss is significant specially if you are having other neurological deficit: loss of concentration. Please consult your physician for Bkood pressure and physical exam which may include MRI Brain with and without Contrast. Et a Neurology work with Neurologist. Meanwhile ask your Ophthalmologist to perform a complete Eye exam with visual fields. This will help the other specialists to decide
I got blurred peripheral vision in my right eye. It lasted about 15 minutes. It happened once before about 6 months ago. I don't get migraines.
Sounds like...: ...something you should see your doctor about. It may have been nothing or it may have been something, possibly serious. There's no way to know more from the minimal information in your 26-word post. If it IS a problem, could be a brain problem, could be an eye problem. That's the first thing you have to figure out.
I am currently experiencing blurred peripheral vision in my left eye, (like looking through a prism) on meds for sinus infect. Are they related?
See eye doctor ASAP.: If a sinus infection starts to affect your vision, you are in big trouble. The first thing you need to do is to consult an ophthalmologist ASAP. Side effects from medications may rarely affect one's vision but I 'd not expect it to affect only one eye.
Left eye peripheral vision blind spot in low light only for 2 days after being hit in the eye with water balloon. Was examined by ER doc who said she could see nothing wrong with my eye. Wondering if this is temporary, and what causes the blind spot.
Early warning: Central vision is for fine detail - reading, face recognition, etc. Peripheral vision, of low acuity, is sensitive to motion and serves to provide early warning of threats from the sides and also provides orientation to the major features of the visual space. With no peripheral vision (called tunnel vision) you cannot drive, or easily walk around, etc.
Retina-optic nerve: Peripheral vision loss may be a retinal detachment, retinitis pigmentosa, rare drug toxicities, immune retinopathy, retinal infection, and glaucomatous optic neuropathy. In the brain migraine, and certain types of stroke can cause a loss of peripheral vision. Transient obscurations of vision may be low blood pressure. An eye examination with dilation should identify the cause.See 1 more doctor answer
Migraine??: The big issue is whether it is a transient or permanent problem. Regardless, a full exam with visual field testing should help you sort out the possible cause. Migraine is most common transient type. In elderly patients you also have to assess for insufficient ocular blood flow (amarosis).
Many possibilities: Many things can cause loss of peripheral (side) vision: glaucoma is the most likely. Ocular pressure rise causes vascular and optic nerve damage. Another is a tumor or aneurysm near the pituitary gland, compressing the nerves from the eye as they first join and then re-divide on the way to the back of the brain. Oculo-vascular occlusions can do the same although most often this is only in one eye.
Possibly Migraine: This is a somewhat unusual symptom, but sounds like it could possibly be from ocular migraine. No headache or pain is required for that diagnosis. You should have a thorough exam by an ophthalmologist, probably including a visual field exam, to help determine the cause and to rule out certain neurological causes. Depending on the testing results, neuroimaging with a ct scan or MRI may be required.
Seek help: Vision may be lost peripherally from disasters within the eye such as retinal detachment or vascular occlusion; or from strokes in the brain in the occipital lobe or the pituitary region; or from systemic vascular collapse, drug toxicity or poisoning. You need to immediately see an ophthalmologist for this as some of these are extremely urgent and can affect both eyes.
Minor degree: There is a minor lowering of the extent of peripheral vision in older folks. The more important change is a measurable drop in reaction time which affects their ability to respond to visual input and makes driving more hazardous.
