Migraines every 2 weeks with aura vision goes dark terrible head pain. Wake up with stiff neck+pain the day after. Sometimes face and left arm go numb?
Have you had an MRI: Clinically when a person has 2 or more migraines/month = chronic migraine disorder. You need to be evaluated to be on medications to prevent migraines from occurring. If left face and arm numbness are a new pattern for your migraines, you need to see your MD right away to have an MRI & MRA of brain done. If you have never had a MRI, it should be completed to dx hemiplegic migraine vs other cause. ...Read more
I scratched my cornea last week on November 29th. Every since then, I have blurry vision. My eye doctor prescribed me eye ointment for my eye, but it's still a little blurry, but not as bad when I went to the doctor. How long does a scratched cornea heal
Eye Hope This Helps: They heal pretty fast but it depends on the size, depth & location of the abrasion. If right in the line of sight, over the pupil, it could take several weeks before your vision is back to what it was. Try looking through a pinhole & see if it clears up. If it does, then it's likely something else, unless that"something else"was there before the injury. Try moisturizing eye drops for a while, then a recheck ...Read more

No: Congrats on having such good vision! maintaining eye health depends on many factors, of which a healthy diet is one of them. While carrots can be good for you, the chemical they provide can be overdone - you can turn orange! Better to eat a balanced diet, avoid eyestrain, bright lights, dangerous visual habits, smoke exposure and so on. ...Read more
Probably dry eye: This is most common when first waking up and the blurry vision is temporary. Artificial tears over the counter will help. Make sure it does NOT contain any redness or itching reliever in it. Just a pure lubricating drop. Use this through out the day and when waking up. Generally 3-4x/day. Dry eye is very common. If the blurry vision persists, see an eye doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Are controllable, predictable flashes of light in vision usually benign? Like every time I look up quickly in dark, I see a small flash at the bottom.
Not always!: 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". When it pulls away (initially tugs), it causes flashes. You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. ...Read more
Yes but: Scratched corneas will lower the vision until healed. But if your vision is dropping and you have to ask the question, then it probably is something else as scratched corneas are extremely painful and will not allow you to ignore them. For lowered vision see your ophthalmologist for a proper diagnosis and management. ...Read more

I keep getting a blurred circle shaped vision in my eyes every now and then? What could be the cause?
Is the blurred circle in your vision followed by a headache? Does the blurred circle tend to last 10-20 minutes? Do you have a family history of migraines? Motion sickness? These are all indications that your problem is a migraine.

How will wearing disposable contact lenses improve my vision if I'm throwing them away every day after 1 use?? I wear RX glasses mainly.
Do you see well?: Contact lenses correct the existing vision so you can see clearly. Disposable lenses do the same thing. They do not change the eye to reverse the visual optic needs. Daily disposables are a convenient way for vision correction but are not therapeutic, just optical. ...Read more

Possibly: If the reason for your worsening vision is a change in the refraction which is the optical correction available in new lenses, then that is all you need. If the change is due to pathology in the eye, new glasses might not help. Your ophthalmologist can help you find the difference between these two and give you assistance. ...Read more
