Worst Astigmatism Symptom
How severe is an albumin of 5.4? Please describe severity of symptoms? Crippling fatigue, pulsating symptoms, severe headaches, eye pain, nausea?
None of the above: I hope it doesn't disappoint you greatly to let you know that your Albumin levels are considered quite within the normal range. Of course, lab values do vary from one laboratory to another therefore, it would be best to find out the normal range in the laboratory you had the blood drawn or tested but for all intents and purposes the range of normal for Albumin is taken to be 3.5 to 5.5. ...Read more
Blurred vision w/prescription glasses on have astigmatism & 4 or more migraines/week w/extreme pressure sharp pain over right eye. What could it be?
A reason for exam: Eye prescriptions don't last forever and changes in your general health or prescribed medications - even birth control - can made adjustments necessary. See a good vision doctor and/or your GP for exam if new lenses don't remove the pain(s). Don't wait - this is not likely to just change back and there's no need to suffer. ...Read more
Headaches, vision change, floaters, visual snow, halos, starburts and glare could all of these symptoms combined be brain related ?
Suddenly developed bad night glares and starbursts.No refractive error, checked cornea & everything-nothing wrong, have vitreous degen.Cause for glare?
No: Dim vision means relative darkening of images and surrounds compared to what a normal eye sees. Dim vision is caused by not enough light entering the back of the eye (cataract, small pupil, severely scarred cornea, severe lid droop) or the eye not transferring signals to the brain (retinal disease, glaucoma, optic nerve disease, poor blood circulation) . See your eye md. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possible: TIA can present as suddenly decreased vision ("curtain falling" or blurred vision). It can be in one eye or in both eyes (in which case it is usually only on one side of vision). Many other diseases can cause blurry vision - migraines, problems with the eye itself. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Blurred vision: Both high & low blood sugar levels can affect vision: high blood sugar causes swelling in lens, resulting in blurred vision. When blood sugar is better controlled, lens is less/not swollen & vision may change again. If eyes have adapted to higher blood sugar levels & swelling, dropping down to low sugar levels can cause blurred vision. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

GPC: Giant papillary conjunctivitis is the most common cause of sudden contact lens intolerance. It is treated with a period of contact lens discontinuation, topical steroid and anti-histamine/mast cell stabilizer, frequent artificial tears. Other issues such as dry eye or blepharitis could also be the cause of ctl intolerance. You should see your eye doctor for further evaluation. ...Read more

Migraine: is a serious and complex neurologic disorder.

It is manageable condition. See an orofacial pain or headache specialist for evaluation and professional management. ...Read more
Yes: It is not uncommon to have sinus pain from sinus disease or sinus congestion. However, it is persistent or if there is fever and neurological symptoms such as headaches or visual problems it should be checked out. You want to make certain that there is not the development of a sinus abscess or worse a brain abscess. You should have this evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more
Refractive Error: Yes, hyperopia and astigmatism are forms of refractive error that if not corrected with glasses or contact lenses can result in diminished or possibly even distorted vision. A detailed examination with an eye care provider is helpful in determining the extent of your refractive error and whether glasses, contacts, or other options will be helpful to you. ...Read more
No: Astigmatism has to do with the shape of the eyeball which is heavily influenced by genetics. It is quite different from what happens inside the metabolism of functioning cells. The mitochondria are little work centers that process/make things in response to and in unison with the information provided by the cell nucleus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Visual blur: Astigmatism is found in an eye with some degree of ovalness. Most are intrinsic (not due to some external cause) and it is very common (over 60% of eyes have some degree of astigmatism). Correction is a reverse oval of the proper power in eyeglasses or contact lenses. Lasik can also correct this. There are no eyedrops, lifestyle changes or dietary changes to correct this. ...Read more
Yes: "astigamatism symptoms", generally blurred or distorted vision, can be caused by many things. Incorrect glasses prescription, or glasses fitting in a tilted or "crooked" manner, can also cause these symptoms. See an ophthalmologist or optometrist to see if the glasses prescription is correct, and that they are fitting properly. ...Read more
Not much of an issue: Babies are born nearsighted, ~20/400 vision & can see clearly about 12 inches at the start. As they age, changes in the size of the eye bring them into better focus, & 20/20 vision is generally achieved by ~5y. As long as baby has similar visual imput from both their eyes, the brain seems to adjust & accept the info. If one eye is weak or distorted the brain may turn it off= ambliopia. ...Read more
Heavy handed: Asitgmatism is an ovalness of the optical parts of the eye which requires a reverse oval to correct in the eyeglasses or contacts used to correct it. It is common and in some cases can be quite extreme. Perhaps your doc is inexperienced, has not seen many cases and you are the worst. Or perhaps your doc is a little insensitive and overreacting to things. A second opinion can be helpful. ...Read more
I suffer from myopic astigmatism since borned. I also had operated strabismus. My dioptries haven't changed since 2009! Is ths a good sign? :)
Sounds good: I am hoping that your treatment when an infant and child kept the vision good in both eyes and even better, that you can use the eyes together? The diopters are less important than whether you have good vision in both eyes. Myopia tends to increase a little into the low to mid 20s and then it stops. You may have some small changes the next several years but these can be corrected. ...Read more
I have astigmatism, i haven't been to an eye doctor in 10 years. I get unfocused when i look down then back up. Is it possible it got worst?
Astigmatism: Astigmatism is one type of refractive error. Myopia (or nearsightedness), hyperopa (or farsightedness), and astigmatism all can cause refractive error. Refractive error is what causes a patient to require glasses or contact lenses to see better. Astigmatism is typically when the cornea is shaped more like a football than a basketball. Glasses, contact, and LASIK can fix this problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Corneal curvature: Astigmatism just means that your cornea is not perfectly spherically shaped and instead has different curvatures in different directions (kind of like a football in the extreme example). Everyone has some degree of astigmatism although not everyone has enough to notice it. I doubt you "need" any surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually not: Astigmatism is a physical curvature aspect of the cornea and lens of the eye which in effect makes the eye oval. The term astigmatism is from physics and is not usually a bad thing. The correction is a reverse oval in the eyeglasses or contacts. Most astigmatism is small and easily corrected. Sometimes it is large or irregular and that make perfect vision difficult. See your ophthalmologist. ...Read more
Diagnosing Astigmati: Astigmatism is caused by a football shaped cornea so technologies can that can measure corneal shape (topographers) can diagnose astigmatism.Glasses refraction, corneal topography, scheimpflug photography, keratometry, and many sophisticated technologies can easily diagnose astigmatism today. Most cases can be corrected by glasses/cls, laser techniquesand lens implant technologies (toric lenses). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
