Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
do these lines move around?
I see that you are offline. I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
I guess it does interfer with my vision. I can see the lines when I am on the computer so there is some distortion. If I look at the white wall across the room I can see the lines there.
I just noticed it about 6 weeks ago. I do not know if it was there before that or not. It could have been. I live in an old house with low lighting and some of the walls are a yellowish color. I just thought it was the low lighting but maybe I have had it for awhile. The only reason I zoned in on it was because I had hurt the calf muscle and was laying on the the couch one morning with my legs proped up just looking at the cealing when I notice the swirles in the plaster seemed to have yellow lines around them. When I looked at my countertop in the kitchen I could see the same lines and when I look in the sink I could agin see the lines. Uh Oh, something is wrong here.
It is both eyes and the pattern is very light.
No I do not see any flashes of light
Yes, it is both eyes. I have closed each and see the image with both.
I have not notice that the image has changed at all and yes, it never goes away.
Your answers are pretty much what I have figured out myself on the computer but I appreciate your input. I have an appt with my md next week and I am sure he will be sending me to an ophthalmologist at that time. I will also check into the neuro-opthalmologist you spoke of. That was suggest on one of the other chat websites I found.
I would be glad to get back to you if there is any further results. My family seems to always have problems that are not in the norm. :) How would I further contact you to tell you of any progress on this problem?
Thank you for your time. I will be glad to give you kudo's.
