  • Eye, sight problem... anyone experienced something similar?

    4:30 am today WOOOSH 5-10 seconds and I saw an abstract gray pattern, closed my eyes and a gray moving abstract pattern appeared,

    Then I opened my eyes and only saw the right side of my field of vision, the left side of my field of vision was only that gray moving pattern.



    For a test:

    - Closed my left eye and with the right eye and saw only the right side of my field of vision,

    - Closed my right eye and with my left eye I saw only the right side of my field of vision.

    So with the left as well the right eye I saw only the right side of my field of visiom, the left side was gray.



    I work 16-18 hours every day late into the night with two 24" LCD monitors.

    Then I went to bed and hoped that when I wake up this reduced field of vision would be normal again when I wake up.

    When I woke up the full field of vision was there again, but I still see little white spots which makes it difficult ro read text on the monitor.

      I didn't have exactly those symptoms. I was seeing sort of an amoeba type thing. Turned out I had a detached retina in one eye and retina tears in the other. I had to have surgery immediately.
      I recommend you see an eye doctor, and possibly a retina specialist stat, cause eyes aren't anything to mess with and I'm sure you don't want to go blind.

        Dude, get to an eye doctor right now! You could permanently lose your vision.

          Dude, this isn't a medical forum! Go see your doctor, stat, because you MAY be having optical problems or something far worse!

            Angelo, that could be anything from a retinal injury to an aneurysm. Get your ass to a doctor immediately.

                That anyway tomorrow.


                Just wanted to know if anyone experienced something similar.

                  that's pretty much descibes what I experienced

                  [COLOR="darkgreen"]
                  Zigzagging patterns
                  Blind spots
                  Shimmering spots or stars

                  sometimes, ocular migraine is used as a synonym for the medical term "retinal migraine." A retinal migraine is a rare condition occurring in a person who has experienced other symptoms of migraine. Retinal migraine involves repeated bouts of short-lasting, diminished vision or blindness. This may precede or accompany a headache.


                  Only that doesn't fit my case:

                    The geometric or abstract patterns are actually less worrisome than some other symptoms. Although everybody who has described them to me has been freaked out by them.

                    The condition that Jeff Leites described is why you want to be checked out. Do you take your blood pressure regularly? Audio work raises blood pressure because of a natural response to noise. That is probably aggravated by sitting in a chair for long hours. Hypertension (high blood pressure) can bring on the aneurysm that Jeff K mentioned.

                      It could be a warning sign of a possible impending stroke. It could be a transient ischemic attack. TIA. This can occur when plaque breaks free and partially cuts off or blocks the blood flow to the brain. If I were you I would immediately get your regular doctor to refer you to a neurologist and a cardiologist to rule it out. I sincerely hope it is not that serious, but please do not wait. If I were you and there were still a few hours to go before you could get to a doctor, I would go to the emergency and pay the extra money to get attention right now. Don't wait to make an appointment hours away or the next day......get in now. Insist he see you right away.

                      I do not mean to scare you, but with these things-the faster you get attention can make a huge difference. Good luck with that and I hope it's not a big deal.

                          That's weird, I've never heard of that. Hope it turns out OK.

                            Well, I think it has to do that I have a heavy sinusitis at the moment and the usual headache,

                            yes, I sit in the chair the whole day and night, smoke like a chimney and drink at least 10 cups of coffee



                            I haven't seen a doctor in decades, I think this folks are useless, well they know how to make a tomography for 800 bucks and still see nothing.

                              yes, that's somewhat strange, Sandro a friend of mine said "oh then it is something in the brain" and laughed
