Doctor can evaluate: If a new vision symptom pops up, one should see his primary care doctor and/or an ophthalmologist (eye doctor). Vision is so important, so it is good to have a doctor get the whole story and examine the eyes.

When I blink, I see a black spot in the corner of my left eye. Should I be worried?

Floater: If the black spot moves with blinks, then it's likely in the vitreous. If not new and only one without flashes or decreased vision, may not be anything serious. If it's a fixed black spot, then should be checked out for a potential retinal or brain problem. ...Read more

My boyfriend is very into fishing and recently found a great spot an hour away so now I barely see him, how should I handle this?

My boyfriend is very into fishing and recently found a great spot an hour away so now I barely see him, how should I handle this?

Your relationship: I would suggest that when life hands you lemons you make lemonade. It's great that he has found a good fishing spot, and my advice is to be as supportive as you can. If you don't like going fishing but can enjoy being there, go. If you don't like being there at all, or cleaning fish, be supportive, help him have a good time and ask him to clean the fish before he brings them home! ...Read more

Sensation: that sensation you are having sounds like neuropathy. A nerve is irritated in your scalp. Look for a rash in the area, it may be shingles. Many neuropathies resolve ( like when you hit your "funny bone"), if it persists for over a day, see your doctor. If you are having any weakness in your arm or face or slurring words or balance issues, see a doctor now. ...Read more

What may cause someone to see an increase of floaters/spot things?

What may cause someone to see an increase of floaters/spot things?

Floaters: It sounds as if you have had a 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". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. ...Read more

What to do if i look at sun and now I have prolim too see its like spot on my eyes what should I do know please frnd tel?

Solar retinopathy: Looking at the sun too long can actually burn the retina in the back of the eye. Symptoms may fade or be permanent depending on the severity of the damage. Don't look at the sun anymore, not even while wearing sunglasses. See an eye MD for a dilated exam. This condition has been more common after solar eclipses when people tried to view the sun directly. ...Read more
