I am 30, male, computer programmer. I've never had any problem in my eyes before, but 13 days ago my left eye got blurred and then I started getting dizzy sometimes. I went to the GP and he said it could be conjunctivitis (I didn't think it was, because my eye wasn't red or sticking). I applied the eyewash he prescribed for 5 days, no improvements though.
Then I went to the eye hospital and they made a lot of exams (also with dilated pupil) and the doctor there said she couldn't find anything wrong in my eyes (My problem is in the left eye only) and then asked me to go back in 5 weeks time (24/08)
After these exams I started felling my vision getting better. But today it is more blurred than yesterday. I check this by looking in some objects at home, which are always in the same place,and see if I can read the text on them. Other test is to try to focus the computer screen with the right eye covered... I could see reasonable well yesterday, today it is worse, but still better than the first days.
After going to the eye hospital I went to the GP again, and he told me I should go to optician and maybe find a pair o glasses which would make me feel more comfortable.
I don't want to wear glasses before be sure what was the cause for that problem. By my experience my vision goes better some days and worse other days. Maybe (and hopefully) it can be reversible.
The symptoms I feel in my left eye are:
- Blurred vision (Some days better, some days worse).
- Sometimes it is itching;
- Sometimes if hurts a bit;
- Sometimes I feel like there is something inside it;
- Sometimes I have a feeling as the eyelid is a bit glued;
Something I tested yesterday was to see how light I have going through one eye and compare to the other.
During the day I could see things with more brightness in the right eye (the good one).
At night however, the left eye can capture much more light (still blurred though) as I almost thought I had infrared vision in my left eye...lol!!
All this is confusing for me...
I have high cholesterol (280) and I am over weight (Not hugely though). I also don't have a healthy diet.
I always have perfect vision and now I am scared as this symptoms could be an alert for any other serious problem I have and don't know yet.
P.S.: Sorry for my English, It's difficult to me to described the symptoms as my English is not so good.
Can any one help me please?
