When I woke this morning I had trouble focusing my vision.

Customer Question
This happened for the first...
When I woke this morning I had trouble focusing my vision. This happened for the first time 5 days ago, Sunday afternoon when I was walking my dogs. It came on suddenly and with mild nausea. Since then This has occurred several times, including yesterday evening after work on the bus home. On Sunday I needed to drive home and found it difficult to drive just the six blocks or so because of difficulty being able to focus. It seems the right eye is worse. When I close one eye the problem seems to get better. I have a history of migraines, am a 61 yr old woman, Dx Graves disease, thyroid removed 2 months ago. I needed to drive into work today but do not feel I can. Also believe I am seeing "ghost" images occasionally, grey areas in the peripheral vision. Any ideas what may be causing this? I saw my eye dr a month ago. No problems other than a benign floater in my retina I believe, very nearsighted (-8, -9), eye pressure on higher end of normal. Hope you can help

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
