Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I can help you today.
thank you...i need lots of help
What type of physician prescribed the darvocet? What other treatments have you tried?
my primary care physician prescribed the darvocet
I have tried advil, tylenol, ice on my eyes, eye mask
How much vision have you lost secondary to your myopic macular degeneration?
I have lost the central vision in my right eye, my vision with correction is 20/250
I have many floaters in my right eye and a few in my left eye
Ok. Sorry to hear you have lost so much vision in that eye. Thanks for the extra information. Floaters are very,very common with high myopia and nothing to worry about
In my experience there is no association between photophobia, myopic degeneration and high myopia. I think your discomfort is related to something other then your eyes
can eye strain be the cause of the headaches?
I would suggest having a complete examination by a neurologist.
Yes, eye strain can cause headaches but headaches as bad as you describe? Very, very rare. I look at other causes first before turning to that as my first choice for a diagnosis.
what about occipital lobe migraines?
my eye doctor felt I may be experiencing those now
I must admit that I don't know much about those.....I do ophthalmology and retinal diseases and ship the migraines off to my colleagues
as you can tell by contacting you I am at witts in, I have an 11 year old child and a husband and all I have been able to do the past two days is lay in the dark. I am now able to function in a little light, even the light from the computer screen bothers my eyes
is your eye doctor an ophthalmologist or an optometrist?
what causes extreme photophobia
I am followed by both and a retinal specialist, neither of which help, only say there is nothing that can be done
lots of things.....uveitis, trauma, migraines,severe glaucoma....long list
for myopic macular degeneration with loss of the RPE and disciform scar formation, I'm afraid they are correct....
thanks...I just wish the headaches would stop
I still think you would be well served to see a good neurologist for the headaches. Darvocet N100's can only do so much.
I would rather be totally blind in the dark, then have what vision I have and suffer from these headaches which I truly believe are caused from straining to see and light
I hope they do. Thanks for letting me help you today. And now, a word from our sponsors:

You might even consider being seen in a University setting
that way you could see cutting edge headache experts, neurologist, ophthalmologist etc and they could all work together. Mayo Clinic in Rochester Mn does a very good job of this type of approach to complex cases.
Have a good day. I wish you the best of luck.
I was seen at Vanderbilt, they felt like I might be suffering from AZOOR also, I have had shingles in my head on two different ocassions.
The didn't offer any help just kept doing test after test.
that's complicates the issue.....you are kinda between a rock and a hard place.
