I see a dark green tint over one eye upon waking or getting up - either during the night or when reading laying down in the afternoon. It started almost 2 years ago during an attack of Porphyria (PCT) - I was highly photosensitive. The green tint was originally a light tint but now it is so dark that there is very little vision there. The tint lasts for 10-15 minutes.
After analyzing the situation I found that I could trigger it in either eye. For example, if I am lying on my left side then when I get up it will be my right eye that sees the the tint and vice versa for lying on my right side. I have asked my porphyria doctor, 3 primary doctors, 2 eye doctors
and my oncologist and no one has heard of this. Yet, I did see a person via the web post a similar question, no results to that question as of yet. The answer did say to see a neuro-ophthalmologists
. My primary said I should see another eye doctor (#3).
Can you help with this? The 3rd eye doctor, referred to by my latest primary has scheduled me for a catorid ultrasound
but it doesn't sound like she thinks this is the problem. Has anyone heard of this?
I also have hypothyroidism. I had an ependymoma removed and breast cancer - all new items within the last 3-4 years.
