i need to get to the Doc.
you know how it goes

so it has been happening for a couple months now. once or twice a day for about 5 minutes duration.

# will just get blurry. its weird.

happened earlier. i was typing something in a text and as i was reading it, perfectly clear a word i was looking at just lost focus. also a piece of the word, like a letter of it will seem much brighter or more/less in focus than the rest.

if i look away and look back it will be fine but maybe the next thing i look at will do the same thing.

i was at dunkin donuts and looked away from the phone and at the menu.

same deal

no pain. no dizziness.
just that but it is bad.

maybe the bright spot pulses or buzzes a little bit.


kind of freaking me out.


either something is going on with my eyes and i am going to be blind this time next year or i am John Travolta in Phenomenon in which case i will be dead not long after i learn Portugese and water the Marigolds.


am i dying?

Check your blood sugar first. May be diabetes.

Yikes. I hate doctors so I would be googling the shi out of it.

But you should go ask the doc.

Many things can have an effect on your vision. Jumping to conclusions is going to drive you mad -- I am a gold-medal recipient in hypochondria. Don't panic, get to a doc if you're concerned. Hope you're OK.

Google Ocular Migraine. See if this description fits.
There's no pain and no danger, just a weird sensation.

Why not get your eyes checked by an ophthalmologist...ASAP.
Our eyes can change as we age, there are diseases and conditions that can cause all sorts of problems....and untreated may cause vision loss/damage.

Perhaps cataracts ? I have had one sneak up on my as we speak.
I will be having surgery for it in the coming months.

As DictonaryOfExcuses said, we can jump to conclusions quite easily and mistakenly. TST, hope you get to the bottom of it, a lot of us here are fond of you..

GO TO A DOCTOR! Internet forums are no place for accurate diagnosis ...I can think of 5-6 different possibilities....and not 1 is a tumor. So, you're wasting valuable time.

Go..as soon as you can ...don't 2nd guess.

Best....

Sounds a lot like ocular migraines. I get them, usually at night. Wonky vision (usually one eye), a weird sensation (a little like vertigo). Sometimes I lose vision completely in one eye for a minute or two. Google will tell you all about the condition. Get yourself to a doc to make sure though, in case it's something more serious.

FFS mate get a scan sorted out!
I was worried about a brain tumour a few months ago, scan said all cool. Got another scan next week to see what is wrong with me though lol, but get a scan!
...sorry if it is an expensive thing for you, it's easy me saying get a scan when it it is free at the point of need for me.
Best wishes and hope it ain't something serious.

I must be missing something..

You feel you have something wrong with your brain or eyes possibly so you come to a site where their are people that believe the Earth is flat or the Moon is a hologram vs going to a medical professional..

Yeah it reads just as ridiculous as it sounds.

Haven't read any responses to your post yet.

Cataract? Completely fixable.
Diabetes? - how is your diet, what are your blood sugars, are you urinating excessively/insane thirst?
Hypertension - how is your blood pressure? High blood pressure can cause these symptoms.

Time for a yearly check up and blood panel, oh and a visit to the eye doctor. They can do retinal scan by simply taking a photo of your eye. It's as simple as they shoot a camera at your eye and snap the picture. If you have near sightedness, especially if it's quite bad, then a yearly retinal scan is extremely important.

Now, go and get checked over. Just like a yearly tune up for your car.

I completely understand, but think of it this way - doctors are preventative medicine and catch things before they can become an issue or become more than one has time/money/ability to deal with.

Put $50 a month (or whatever you decide) into an envelope every pay day or every month and that money is to be used for a yearly check up. Sometimes it's only a tweak to one's diet to reap the non costly results as opposed to maybe being on a lifetime of diabetes medication/strips/readers, etc. (example).

I'm sure it's nothing. You should continue seeking advice on an internet forum for whatever you think is killing you.

You still need to see a Doctor. Get yourself a proper diagnosis and treatment. I'll be keeping my eye on your thread to see how you are doing.
