Hi There, I have been experiencing this eye issue for many months now.. When looking at lines or colorful prints such as tiger or zebra.. My eyesight or should I say.. I see wavy lines or like a heat wave... I wear eyeglasses and the eye doctor says my vision is fine... I'm very very nervous about this... Also, my eyes twitch constantly... some days worse than others

hi

Dr. PG :

welcome to just answer

Dr. PG :

are you present online?

Dr. PG :

given your symptoms there are a few possibilities in your case-

Dr. PG :

- increased pressure of the eye or glaucoma

Dr. PG :

- ARMD (age related macular degeneration) - this is basically degenerative process of the central macular part of retina. But this is usually seen in older age

Dr. PG :

- other retina problems like CSR (central serous retinopathy), edema in the central part of retina or other lesions ec. For this you would need a detailed retinal examination after dilating the pupil

Dr. PG :

if need be investigations like OCT and FFA might be needed

Dr. PG :

if your eye doctor has done a complete check up to rule out the above causes, then the other possibility can be ocular migraine, which would need an evaluation by a Neurologist

Dr. PG :

If the diagnosis of migraine is confirmed, then starting treatment for the same would help relieve your symptoms

Dr. PG :

Hope this information helps
