What Are The Geometrical Prisms That Sparkle In My Vision Every So Often Only In My Left Eye

I've been having vision disturbances in my left eye for 3 years now. All test results are normal. What should I do?
How do I treat the floating-fly (black dots) in my sight vision?, I been having them in my left eye for 2 years now.
Floaters: They are most likely what are known as floaters. Floaters are condensations within the vitreous gel in the center of the eye. They can be annoying, but are usually not a significant problem. If you develop a shower of new floaters, particularly if seen with light flashes, that could indicate that you are developing a retinal tear or detachment, and you should be seen by an ophthalmologist asap. ...Read more
I feel that my left eye vision is good but a little blurry, I mean that I can see for long distance but with little blurry in my left eye.
Probably fine: I am guessing that your right eye sees clearly and there is a little blur when you cover the right eye. Many eyes are a little different from each other and it appears your left eye has a little bit of need for glasses but given that the right eye is so good, there is no hurry to do this. ...Read more
I just noticed the vision in my left eye seems a little duller and blue tinted than my right eye. Is this bad?
I keep getting a sharp pain in my left eye and my vision isn'tas good as it used to be. What's happening to me eyes?
Non-specific issue: Your description is not specific to any particular diagnosis. Any cause of eye surface irritation will cause sharp pain in the eye. I recommend that you see an eye doctor to determine the exact cause of your eye pain. ...Read more
Can I get the vision in my left eye up to par with my right eye by keeping my right eye covered with a patch, forcing my left eye to do more work?
Patching: Patching the better visioned eye does improve visual acuity in children particularly when they are 9 yo or less in age. Even to some degree patching up to 17 yo can help, but less effective. I didn't get your age, but if you are an adult, the benefits of patching will not likely have a positive impact. You should see an Eye MD if you are concerned about your vision. All you may need is glasses. ...Read more
Once in a while I get these strong headaches, which start will a blurring of the vision, mainly in my left eye. Is this related to my eyes? What can I do?
Eye doctor!: You should see an optometrist or ophthalmologist for diagnosis and treatment. You may need glasses or contacts, or it could be something entirely unrelated. But if blurry vision is your only symptom, see an expert eye doctor! Optometrists (od degree) diagnose and refract; ophthalmologists (md degree) do these also but also do many more things related to the eye, including surgery. ...Read more
My vision in my left eye is -7.75, and my vision in my right eye is -7.00 is this very bad? Am I going to go completely blind?
Moderate myopia: These numbers indicate the amount of nearsightedness you have. At 19 years old, it possible these are stable and won't get much worse. Most nearsighted people tend to get worse during the teenage years and stabilize in the late teen's or early 20's. When it becomes stable, you can have laser to fix it. Or you can continue to wear glasses or contact lenses. ...Read more
If I am forming a cataract in my left eye, would this effect my near point and distance vision? Or, only distance, in most situations?
Depends: Cataracts affect visual quality. Cataracts vary on the type and density. Your vision may be interfered by the cataract in many ways. Sometimes distance vision is affected primarily, other times it's mainly near vision. Of course, both far and near vision can be affected. So it all depends on what you're primarily doing and how you feel your vision is affected. ...Read more
Good day, I hope you could help. Since Saturday (2days ago), the vision in my left eye suddenly went blurry. Fisheye lens effect. Any reason?
Is a potentially serious/vision cause of sudden visual loss that needs to be ruled out rapidly. As does ciculatory problems such as vein occlusion or stroke. Please seek urgent attention from a GP, emergency doctor or ophthalmologist licensed in your area. Here is some general information on visual loss.

I am 20. My vision in my left eye has been gone since childhood. I have been told it is not the eye itself. Also there is no fixing the problem. Why?
Amblyopia: Your brain never "learned" how to see out of that eye. Usually the visual system matures around the age of 6 so if you haven't fixed the problem by then you are kind of out of luck. This is why some kids have one eye patched when they're little-- it forces the brain to get the non-seeing eye to learn how to see. ...Read more
My vision randomly got blurry and flashy in the corners of my eye. It feels worse in my left eye than right. Is it just a migraine? There is no pain
It is hard to know if this is a migraine or not. Although this symptom can be an aura, or warning for a migraine, it would be easier to conclude this if other migraine symptoms followed, like throbbing headache pain, nausea, or sensitivity to light.
It is a good idea to ask a provider to perform an eye exam in this case. Good luck! ...Read more
Sudden black & white zigzag pattern in my left eye. Can't see with side vision. Happens from light glares at time. No other symptoms. Lasts about 1hr?
Occipital migraine: This is due to vascular changes in the occipital lobe of the brain, the part of the brain that makes the images we call vision. The classic pattern is a zig zag one which sometimes shimmers in an arc with a greyout in the middle. These can be annoying but are not dangerous and do not cause long term damage. ...Read more
Actually, I am having a bad vision in my left eye and the eye ballof the left eyelooks small, also my left eye keeps wandering compare with the rightone?
See eye doctor soon: If your left eye has bad vision, seems smaller, and keeps wandering, your eye doctor can tell you whether it's amblyopic (seeing eye with vision) or lazy eye, or neither. Depends how long that eye has been doing it. All your life? Or just recent changes? A slit lamp microscopy exam will also look at other causes in your cornea, iris, retina that may be causing problems. So don't delay! ...Read more
I've been having a pressure feeling in my left eye and it makes my vision sorta blurry. What could it be and what should I do? I was also diagnosed with anxiety can it have anything to do with that?
My vision went strange in my left eye for 20 minutes. Looked like flashing circles and stars. Was this an ocular migraine? Worried
Need eye exam ASAP: There are many possible causes. If the blind spot was temporary and the visual loss completely resolved, this could be a visual migraine (which usually affects both eyes) or even a transiet ischemic attack (TIA) - which is much more serious and should be evaluated immediately. If the loss remains, retinal problems such as a vein occlusion, retinal detachment, or an optic nerve problem are possible. ...Read more
