Heloo I'm having trouble seeing out of my right eye.

Customer Question

I'm having trouble seeing out of my right eye. Myvision is blurred even with my glasses or contacts on. I only see the colors but not the writting.
Am I going blind or do i need a stronger prescription for that eye.

When did this start? Without your glasses/contacts, how is your upclose vision? One or both eyes? Any eye pain?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I can't see without my glasses ,I need them at all times. I rarely have pain but i do get headaches
Expert:  Dr. James replied 8 years ago.
Without your glasses, you should be able to see upclose.

Is your upclose vision affected as well? Pain?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
If it's close to my face yes. for example if i'm watching tv i need them or i would have to squint to see. no pain but i sometime think i have something moving around in the right one
Expert:  Dr. James replied 8 years ago.
If your upclose vision is OK in that right eye, then that may mean that you need a change in prescription. I recommend you make an appointment with an optometrist today for check of you vision.
