If viral cold, yes. Sometimes with the viral shedding in the tear film, there can be minor irritation or blurriness that goes away as soon as the cold does. If not, call your eye doctor so they can assess under a slit lamp examination. Meanwhile, if your eyes are feeling 'hot', cool compresses may be better than warm until the cold goes away. If eyes are feeling cool, or cold, the warm compresses would be comforting. Read more...

Thinning macula. May refer to the loss of pigment or to a general decrease in thickness as occurs in many macular diseases in addition to macular degeneration. The macula can be assessed with a very rapid non invasive test called oct. This could resolve whether you do have pathologic (bad) thinning or whether it is just natural changes in pigment that occur as we get older. See a retinal specialist! Read more...
