Is it normal for a nearsightedness to feel a little dizzy or headache after fitting new glasses? It just increased by 100.
Change in glasses Rx: It is common to have some difficulty getting used to a new glasses prescription. Usually, this should get better in a week or two. If it doesn't, then you should have the glasses checked by the place that made them and have the prescription checked by the eye doctor that did the exam to make sure the power is correct. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a constant scintillating scotoma that happens every time i look at a computer screen that is not "glassy" recently saw eye doc , no eye problems?
Usually Unrelated: Since you seem to be well educated as to how to use the term "scintillating scotoma" and aware of what appears to trigger the same then, you must've done enough reading or been told by the eye doc that such a symptom is much less likely associated with eye problems than it is with headache problems such as aura of a migraine. Back to the primary for a more definitive referral if necessary. ...Read more
Been seeing halo around lights at nightfor the past year or so.I notice it started soon after i got new prescriptive glasses.Could it be the cause or?
Possibly: Yes it's possible your eye glass prescription is incorrect, and the only way to know is to go back to your eye doc and have a refraction. An exam would also help to rule out other causes of nighttime halos, such as cataract, dry eye associated keratitis., or other corneal aberrations. ...Read more
Went to eye doctor because i thought i may have seen a flashing light in my peripheal for a split second. He found nothing wrong. Is photopsia hard to miss when you experience them?
Yes. Often.: Clinicians cannot see your flashes. Only you can see those. We can however, explain flashes on the basis of subtle changes in the vitreous gel and signs of traction on the retina. Most unilateral flashes are a result of vitreous traction - also not always evident on exam. So, if exam is normal and no (retinal) defects were found, i wouldn't worry. Inform your doctor if you have any rd signs. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I see a bright spot in my vision in each eye, (like after you stare at the sun) it's been there constantly for 24 hrs. Could it be from lyrica (pregabalin) I'm on?
I'm suffering from halo vision. i feel difficult to see in day light as it is so bright. But i had a numb of tests done by eye specialists and everything is perfectly normal. I also have trouble sleeping continuously at night. What do you think could be
Not sure: Sensitivity to light as you describe it could come from a dilated pupil (possibly from medications you take), A cataract ( though you're young to have this), inflammation in the eye (often associated with ache and redness), or corneal swelling/irritation. If you already had an eye specialist look at your eye, but the symptoms continue to persist or worsen, you may need to seek a second opinion. ...Read more
I have astigmatism & light sensitivity. I bought new glasses. Still have severe night time glare. Doc says eyes will adjust. Its been a month. Do I have to live with the glare? Visit another doctor?
Glare: Glare can be due to many things besides astigmatism-- you may have a cataract, you may have other eye problems--- some people will use slightly tinted glasses for night driving-- others will use special mirrors that dim down with oncoming headlights from behind-- it is ok to get another opinion from another doc, but first, make sure the glasses were made correctly... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Vision has gotten really blurry lately & i see visual snow in my vision even with glasses on. This started before the glasses as well. What's going on?
Time for exam: If the snow is there all the time, you really need to see your eye doctor for a full exam. Cover each eye separately to see if it's in one or both eyes. Make sure to describe it as well as you can for the doctor. If the snow comes and goes, it could be related to low blood pressure or with migraines (if you're prone to headaches). Good luck! ...Read more
I made a lasik surgery 2 days ago, till now i see blurry as if i am wearing a wrong degree glasses is it normal?what is the period 4 a clear vision?
Few months: Honestly, it can take 2-3 months before your vision stabilizes again and your eye is completely healed. It can vary based upon what your vision was like before the procedure. Ask your surgeon what he/she expects for you based upon what your eyes were like before the procedure so that you'll have a better idea of what to expect in terms of healing time. ...Read more

Sometimes after exercise or playing soccer I have blurry vision or see jagged lines in my field of vision. Lasts 15-30 min. Why might this happen?
Several options: This might be pigmentary glaucoma. If you are myopic and have this problem, the pigment liberated in exercise partially blocks fluid circulation inside the eye increasing the pressure and causing visual symptoms. It could also be a manifestation of occipital migraine. Check with your ophthalmologist as the glaucoma probably needs treatment. ...Read more
I believe I got an eye infection through make -up (false eyelashes) I've had a very red, scratchy, irritated and blurry vision in one eye for two days. I've traveling abroad and still traveling for another day before I can see a Dr. What should I do?
Likely allergic: Although you could get an infection from shared cosmetics,lashes, I doubt this has happened. Your tissue likely had an allergic response to the material used to attach the lashes.A simple eye wash and or artificial tears can help you in the near term and avoid using the lashes. If allergic,it will improve slowly,if infected this should help until you are seen. ...Read more
