Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I can help you today.
So, let me make sure I understand you. The eye that has been mashed down in the pillow is the eye with the green/round/square spots and the other eye -- that was not in the pillow, is fine? Did I get that right? Also, do you wear plus powered glasses (hyperopia) or negative powered glasses (myopia)? Any medical problems, take any meds, or have any other symptoms?
Noooo ........ the eye that is in pillow is fine. That leaves one eye exposed when I wake. The exposed eye -if my left one - is fine - clear vision. It is when the left side of my face is in the pillow and the right eye is exposed - that is when the probs occur. If I wake with both eyes opening at the same time-all is well. Just when exposed right eye opens first - then the pattern on the wall which disappears after a few seconds. This is soooo bizarre !! I have bifocals - for distance and reading but am not wearing them when awakening. Have controlled high blood pressure - taking two meds for that - a potassium supplement - calcium supplement - and synthroid for hypothyroidism. Also take temazepam for sleep. I have been taking these meds for years - no probs. This all started a month ago. Oh, one last thing - my right eye has been blurring in and out for about two years. Nothing found at last eye exam - 12 months ago. Just a quick blur - then all is well. Happens so much I don't even notice it anymore unless I am focusing on something. Continued from last eyeglasses and new lenses. Not extremely bothersome. Hope this info helps ! : )
Ok. Thanks for helping me to get the facts straight. You are right....this is weird, but interesting......
I have to wonder...why would everything be fine when you open both eyes at once? I have to think of something that connects the eyes. One thing that comes to mind, especially when you talk about that eye blurring in and out quickly for a few years is some type of accommodation problem.
The chat system is acting up since you are not online. I'm going to switch to the Q&A mode but we can still "chat" if needed, it's just a little bit slower....
