Depends: If it is intermittent and moves, then it's likely a floater in the vitreous. If it doesn't move and is constant or increasing, then can be a problem in the retina. Sometimes a moving line of light can be representative of a cortical problem like an optic migraine. ...Read more

If I have an early glaucoma, does this affect my vision by time?

If I have an early glaucoma, does this affect my vision by time?

Possibly: Glaucoma can be vision threatening if poorly treated or undetected. The goal of therapy is to get the internal pressure into a safe range so that the vision is not affected. In most cases the vision will be preserved. It is a bit of a difficult motivation task as the use of eyedrops for glaucoma does not produce an immediate benefit (like a pain reliever would) so treatment is for the long term. ...Read more

If only one eye is affected it could be a retinal migraine or transient central retinal artery occlusion, with cilio-retinal artery sparing of the central vision. See an ophthalmologist. ...Read more

Will wearing someone else's strong glasses all the time cause my vision to worsen?

Will wearing someone else's strong glasses all the time cause my vision to worsen?

No: I am assuming you are wearing someone elses eyeglasses because they help your vision. But since they are not fit to your need, you might feel some strain. This is not harmful but it might be uncomfortable. At some time you should consider going to an ophthalmologist and getting the proper correction for your eyes. ...Read more
