Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Do you wear glasses?
Do you wear contact lenses?
Is all of the vision in the left eye blurred or only part of the vision in the left eye?
Glasses for reading only.
No contacts. No pain. All vision
It is possible that you have had a blockage of the blood vessel to the retina. This is called a central retinal artery occlusion. I'd recommend you see an ophthalmologist promptly.
There are other things which can cause blurry vision such as corneal swelling or dry eyes, but you will need an exam to determine this.
A central retinal artery occlusion would have no pain associated with it.
It is a Friday can it wait till Monday. My blood pressure is normally good, is a stroke a possibility
Are there eye doctors still open?
Yes but not easy to get into
I would recommend you call them and state that you have loss vision suddenly in that eye. They should be able to accommodate you.
I will, what about the stroke question?
A CRAO can be described as an "eye stroke" but it is not the same as a stroke of the brain.
If you develop headache, slurred speech, dizziness, these may be signs of a brain stroke.
if this is the case, you should be seen in the emergency room.
