This is a similar question to one someone asked Dec 6, I woke up last Monday morning with what looked like a round area of darkness in my left eye that looked like I had stared at a lightbulb for too long. There appears to be a small hole in the right middle of the mass that I can see through and the 'spot' (area of darkness) appears to be dark green. I measure it by looking at a wall 3 ft away and by stretching out my arm all the way and measuring the distance between my thumb and index finger it measures about 3 inches in circumference.
It seems to be worse when I blink. I see the 'negative' of it when I close my eyes, but goes away when I lay down to sleep. There is no pain.
In the last couple of days the spot hasn't changed, but that eye isn't sensing light perception the same as the right eye, i.e. seeing darker. There doesn't appear to be any extra blurriness
at this time.
I am a contact lens
wearer and left my contacts in overnight the morning that I first sensed this. Have done that before, but never had eyes affected. Also use 'monovision
' contacts (nearsighted) and the eye that is affected is my dominant eye (long distance).
I have been mostly wearing my glasses
since then, only a couple of evenings have I worn the contacts and for no more that a few hours, thinking I might have 'starved' the eye of oxygen and hoping it heals itself. Hasn't yet.
Thanks in advance for your advice and council.
