I am 49 year old white female. 5-6 years ago, my migraines changed toinclude bright causing migraines, which was never a problem between 1995-2008. September 2011, I noticed some double vision, which went away for a year with the use of contacts. In 2013, was ddiagnosed with diplopia and given corrective glasses with prisms added this time. Now, depending on my level of my tiredness, brightness causes tunnel vision and decreased visual acuity in my left eye. I still get pain and migrained. My eye feels dry or light some sand in my left eye. Closing the left eye helps lower the pain. I don't know if the pain in my left ear has anything to do with it. Having chronic inner ear infection since the age of 9, I know the pain in my ear feels like an inner ear inflection. But the ear pain happens no less than twice a week for at least 2 years now. I can't detect any dropping eyelids. I don't know if an optometrist or a family doctor is the person to see. I do suffer from allergies and been diagnosed with pre-diabetes. I take meds for depression, anxiety, degenerative disc disease, and high blood pressure. Don't know what else to tell you.
