Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
How long has this been going on for?
Do you wear contacts?
Do you have any medical problems or take any medication?
This has been going on for: Regarding headaches it has been hurting me for months...Re: eye pain for the past month ( usually when light (i.e. sun or room light shines into eye)
Sorry NO I do not wear contacts. No medical hx
No medications for any thing besides vitamins
From what you have posted it sounds like you have swelling inside your eye (uveitis)
I went to the doctor a year ago and was given a referral for an MRI. What would the MRI help to conclude. Would that be better to do than a CT scan? What can I do to decrease the swelling in my eye?
Do not like going to docs much. No I did not do the MRI
The MRI really wouldn't have any place in the workup of the symptoms you have put forward here....
Ok then what should my next step be. How can I find relief?
I think that the best thing for you to do would be to have a complete eye examination by an ophthalmologist. She could quickly diagnose any internal ocular problem and, if it is inflammation as I suspect, get you on the road to feeling better quickly.
Does this make sense to you?
Yes thank you
My pleasure. Have a good day.
