Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Have you ever had herpes of the eye?
not that i know of
Also, when you close your unaffected eye, can you read with the affected one?
How does your eye look in the mirror?
yes, but with a dark spot. Initially the spot is sensitive to light, then it goes to a light brown color.
it looks pretty normal in the mirror
Ok. Well, there are many things that can cause central vision loss like you are experiencing. Since it has lasted so long I am concerned.
I think you should try to get in to see an ophthalmologist today for a complete eye exam.
I have to work, and am weary for asking for time off due to having just missed work for being sick.
I could go through a long differential diagnosis list but that really won't help. It should be checked out sooner rather then later -- even if it means taking half a day off without pay. Things that can cause your visual problems are best treated sooner rather then later. Delaying might only make things worse :(
My pleasure. Best of luck to you.
