Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

Did you have any blood investigations done? Are you suffering from any visual impairment requiring the use of glasses?

No I have not. Yes i am wearing glasses , for power -2.5 and -2.

Dear customer,

Thank you for replying.

You should have a complete blood count done. These visual symptoms can be due to anemia and low hemoglobin which can be easily treated.

Also, these symptoms can be due to the visual impairment that you are suffering from which requires glasses. This is normal for this condition. You should not worry regarding this.

Another possible explanation is that these are the visual aura of a migraine if you have a headache associated with these visual symptoms.

Take care.

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.
