Go to ER: What you are describing sounds like it could be a corneal infection, which can be common in contact lens wearers.

Vertebral arteries: supply the visual cortex in the posterior areas of the brain. These arteries can be visualized on MR angiogram. Consult with an MD whether or not you need to undergo this test. If you really really need it, it can be done even under general anesthesia. As with any medical test, one must weigh its benefits versus risks. ...Read more

Migraine type headache, eye socket pain, temple pain, neck pain, and blurry vision all on the left side. Is this an emergency?

It may be bad, but: Bad is not the same as emergency - try to find a good headache specialist in your area. Yiur GP might refer or even a Univ Hospital directory or drug store may have referrals. ERs are full of trauma and possible contagion - if you need it, they are life saving. If not, go to a less stressful place. Here, Dr Dariush Saghafi is an expert and there are others - he's a gem. ...Read more
