Post 556 Problem with my eyes… going to optometrist

’09 Nov. 08 Sunday 10:49 pm My eyes have been acting up, getting blurred vision since the latter part of September (Post 531 Issues with my Eyes ) I have bi-focals and I’ve noticed that as I’m reading or looking at things in the distance my vision becomes blurry in either my left or right eye, or both. It’s also unusual as sometimes I can see distance well with my right eye and close-ups with my left and then it switches… So I’m really confused as to what is going on.

After working on my computer for a couple of hours my vision was getting blurrier and as I was also getting tired, I decided to call it a night. I went to bed and as I rubbed my right eye I saw flashes of light. It was weird as I wasn’t actually touching my eye but pressing on my eye socket that created the flashes of light on the opposite side of my eye. I then tried it on my left eye and it did the same thing. I then tapped around my eyebrow to see if there were flashes of light as I was told that that was a sign of a detached retina but there was nothing.

Now that I have some extra money, I’m going to make an appointment with my daughter’s optometrist tomorrow to see what is going on.
