Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
How old are you? Other then the decreased, grey vision in the affected eye, do you have any other ocular or systemic sx?
I am 67
No other symptoms
ok. When you say that the vision is worse, can you be more specific?
Using both eyes is straining my eyes. It feels better if I hold my right eye closed
No But I used Rayban glasses out side.
When you close the left eye, looking out of the right eye only, tell me a little bit more of what you see and how it is worse then it was when it was first noticed.
It appears as following
There is a slight core of heavy blurring in the middle of my field of vision. I am unable to focus on an object or a word. It is less as it moves to the periphery. If I stare straight and utilize my peripheral vision it appears to be clear.
Yesterday I could see through that core better than today
I am a retina specialist and it very much sounds like you are having some type of macular event, edema (lots of causes), bleed (wet age related macular degeneration is high on the list) or one of the rare "zebra's". In any event I would feel better if you could get an ophthalmologist to have a look at it today since is has evolved so rapidly. An exam by an non-ophthalmologist would not be of much value (ER doc etc) but if they had an eye doc on call that could come in and see you, that would be good.
wish I had better news for you :(
Very good description by the way. That was helpful.
Perhaps you know an ophthalmologist in your community who would be willing to meet you at his office. I would do that for a colleague in a heartbeat.
That's what my insides
I'm in Northern Wisconsin.....most likely quite a drive from you.....
