Customer Question
Hi For about 18 years...
Hi For about 18 years (I'm 43) I have been experiencing a weird phenomenon with both eyes. I will try and explain. If I stare at a white wall or mirror and look straight ahead with out moving my eyes then move my head either left, right, up or down as
much as it can go without moving my eyes I can see sort of grey circles appear (around the area of the blind spot in each eye - so just right off center in the right eye etc), that get wider the further I turn. They seem to appear when I take my eyes to an
unnatural place – So if I look left as much as I can and then turn my head slowly right - a kind of grey circle appears. It seems to happen when I look past I guess normal movement of the eye if you see what I mean. It feels like I'm changing the shape of
my eye or straining something, Thanks

Hello
This is a visual phenomena that you are inducing.
It is not abnormal.
You have seen opthalmologists, correct?
And what have they told you?

No not yet, too apprehensiveThanks
Eye Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 3 years ago
OK
Given this amount of time, and what you describer, this is a visual symptom you are inducing, and anxiety can do it.
See an opthalmologist for a clean bill of health.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

Thanks, ***** ***** see them all.the time, (when I try to) no real anxiety
Thanks
Eye Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 3 years ago
Anything going of for 18 years is not likely to be serious.
You need to see an opthalmologist, and being anxious about it should not stop you.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
