In the past 2 or 3 hours, I have had 2 occasions in which my left eye vision became significantly less than normal. The first, about 3 hrs. ago, I noticed a dizzy feeling and tightness in the chest and neck. The left eye vision became cloudy and blurred to the extent that I could not read. This lasted probably a minute but not much longer
The second occurred about 45 minutes ago with the same dizziness and tight chest and neck but the vision was much worse. In looking at a lamp, it had sunburst appearance in bright yellow and orange. Looking at the TV, about 1/2 of the viewing area appeared to be blocked out by the same sunburst image.
I checked my blood pressure 3 times and the readings were 127/71, pulse 62, 121/70, pulse 60, and 122/71, pulse 62.
I am 72 yrs old, male, take coumadin, simvastatin, atenelol, have had lasix eye surgery
some 7 or 8 yrs ago. Hospitalized with blood clots about 2 1/2 yrs ago.
Got any ideas?
