Background: I'm 60 yrs. old, have diabetes, congestive heart failure, atrial fibrillation (constant), sleep apnea, diabetic neuropathy, and my doctor recently said my (something) count (which is supposed to be 150) is at 30 and that at 15 they start talking dialysis. I take many vitamins and supplements and have just begun several things to try to help my kidneys. I had an eye exam a couple of months ago with my opthalmologist who said my only problem was that my eye pressure was at the top number that qualifies as normal rather than high (I think it was 20, but I really don't remember).
The other evening I wasn't feeling quite 'right', so I went in to lay down. When my husband flipped off the light, instead of going to dark, everything was as if I was looking through a red lens
or filter. I felt as though I were laying under one of those red lamps the restaurant uses to keep food warm! Of course, I did the expected -- blinked, shifted my gaze all around, tried not to panic (though it didn't help that my heart was being especially erratic and jumping around!), but I didn't rub my eyes as I wasn't sure that would be a good idea. It faded away after about 2 or 3 minutes - but it really freaked me out.
I've tried 'googling' red eyes
and red vision, but didn't find anything even close.
Do you have any ideas? Thanks so much.
