Customer Question

Hello I experience quick and temporary vision loss sometimes
JA: Have you experienced any changes or blurriness in your vision? Eye pain? Are your eyes dry or bloodshot?
Customer: My eyes are always sort of blurry because I'm myopic and wear glasses. No pain. My eyes are red sometimes when I don't get enough sleep. This vision loss thing has been happening for like two years on off but very rarely and i always ignore it because it happens at night so I assume it's the light flickering but lately I've been worried
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Have you been having any headaches?
Customer: No headaches. I rarely have headaches.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Nothing really. I'm 23 and I consider myself healthy. I'm not overweight. I don't smoke or drink if di drugs. So I'm not sure why this is happening!

Hi,

Can you give some more information -

- how long does the episode of vision blurring last?

- any headaches following the vision blurring?

- have you had your BP checked?

- any correlation to lack of sleep, stress, remaining hungry for long times before these blurring of vision episodes?

Regards
