Doctor insights on:
Vision Seeing White Spots
Depends: You need to have a dilated retinal exam by an eye doctor, sooner rather than later.
Migraine or low BP: First, get you blood pressure checked, since low blood pressure can cause you to see spots. If these spots show up randomly, lasting 15 minutes and resolve completely, it may be an ocular migraine (often linked to stress or poor sleep). If you're seeing flashing lights in one eye, see your eye doc asap to check for retinal tears.
Ophthalmologist: Anytime there is a change in visual acuity such as blurring or spots (deficits), an ophthalmologist needs to be seen as soon as possible to treat any reversible conditions.
I cant eat or drink anything without vomiting and I experience spinning sensation with white spots in my vision?
Vomiting: Persistent vomiting can lead to dehydration as well as weakness and dizziness and thus you need medical evaluation and treatment if your symptoms persist. If you can't take in fluids like flat ginger ale or if there is abdominal pain and tenderness, you should go to the hospital emergency room.
14wks preg. Sometimes I get blurred vision, like a light is being shown in my eyes and there are white spots. What is this?
My mother had results of an MRI after she had lost some vision in her right eye, results also showed 12 white spots/fluid on the surface of her brain?
Consider this: Depending on age and medical condition, she may have suffered blood vessel obstruction of retinal artery, and may well possess significant risk for future additional strokes. Need to evaluate risk factors, and use proactive interventions. Consider usage of an antiplatelet agent, such as clopidigrel, or aggrenox. Check heart and peripheral vasculature.See 1 more doctor answer
I got diagnosed with cyrptic tonsills after seeing white spots on my tonsills now there gone I've been taking clindmaycin for 3 days what doesthatmean?
Tonsil stones: Masses of keratin (the internet is wrong about their composition) accumulate in some folks' tonsils. Most of us hack the smelly little "tonsilloliths" up without realizing it, but they can scrape around and invite bacteria into the injuries. If this is a nuisance, an ENT doctor with a laser can resurface them so they stop, or you can learn to remove them yourself (be careful).
White Spots: First off: stop chewing. One of the worse habits that someone can do to themselves. White lesions associated with "dipping" is the first sign of cellular change which means cells are in a dysplastic stage meaning possible beginning stages of cancer. Of all cancers; oral cancer is the most debilitating due to the surgery needed to remove. Jeffrey r. Briney, d.D.S.
Floaters: Vitreous floaters can cause that and often do sparkling or shooting lights is a different story and could be more serious.
You may be low on BP: Or you're having some sort of headache aura but since I don't hear you saying anything about severe headaches I'll stick with the low BP. 1st, make sure you're TANKING UP ON FLUIDS. I suspect you're low cuz your Crohn's is causing a lot of diarrhea & loss of fluids. You need to replace at least as much water daily as you're losing. Next, bolster your salt intake to 2x what you normally take.
I have glaucoma and I've recently been experiencing seeing little white spots after a hard cough. They last about 5 seconds, is glaucoma the reason?
Likely not: Glaucoma usually causes painless vision loss over a long period of time & the visual field ceases to exist (like trying to see your hand from the back of your head). You're describing 'flashes' due to irritation or excitement of your retina (the film in the camera of your eyes). Although very common, some people have a risk of retinal detachment. See an ophthalmologist to have a dilated exam.
I see white spots before my eyes during the day and when I close them at night. Is this normal? What could it be?
Today I woke up with shortness of breath and seeing lots of white spots. Yesterday when I took my BP it was 149 over 103.
I am 53 years old and in the last year I've begun seeing many raised white spots on my legs. I am concerned with the appearance. Any idea of what they are and how to have them removed? Is there a health concern I should be concerned with? Thank you jeff
Very: Very difficult to tell without a clinical examination so I would see a dermatologist. Perhaps they are seborrheic keratoses, specifically the "stucco keratoses" variant. See a picture of a pigmented version at the link below. I hope that helps.
My 8 year old is seeing white spots. Couple of weeks ago he asked us whether it is snowing outside... we saw an eye dr, all good with the eye.
