About 5 months ago, I was working on my computer for a couple hours. I looked up at my clock about 20 feet away and noticed it was very blurry. I didn't think much of it, I thought my contacts were just dry and I was tired. So I went to sleep, but when I woke up everything was still blurry so I made an appointment with an eye doctor. Later in that day I noticed I was having an extremely hard time seeing at night. The doctor I went to didn't find anything and referred me to a retinal specialist. The retinal specialist didn't find anything either so I figured I just needed stronger contacts. I went and had another eye exam but the newer contacts didn't help. The problem has progressed. I has a sudden drop in vision about 3 months ago and other problems.

My most common problems are these.
Very sensitive to light:my eyes start watering and hurt.
Sudden drop in vision
General Bluriness
Very hard to see at night
Floaters are becoming more noticeable/more of them
Light Flashes
Dark shadow haze around what I am not looking at

I have gone from doctor to doctor with each one telling me they can't find anything. Please...Please help me if you have any idea of what can be going on. I am thinking it must be a rare problem since none of the doctors have found anything.. I am only 18 and this is ruining my life. Please help me.
