cloudy grey spot in vision in right eye

yesterday in the midst of teaching class in a highly flourescent lit room I experienced some "flashes" which disoriented me...Once I got back to my office I noticed I had a little cloudy grey spot in the lower left portion of my line of vision in my right eye (if I am reading a line I can see it in the left corner of line beneath the one I am reading)...I also note that when I blink I see a bright spot in the same area...About 5 years ago I was diagnosed with an opthalmic migrane...got glasses and have no more than the usual floaters since...Does anybody have any feedback on such a symptom?...I am set to see my eye doctor tomorrow...I guess I am just panicked because being a professor I need to see/read all of these bad papers...thanks...HTF

Re: cloudy grey spot in vision in right eye

Flashes followed by a grey area should always be investigated, so it's good you're seeing your doctor tomorrow.
Migraine auras have a wide variety of symptoms, but the visual effects usually fade quickly. The grey spot is unusual.
Well, best see what the doc says.

Re: cloudy grey spot in vision in right eye

thanks for the reply...I have been to the opthamologist today and a retinal specialist...and it turns out that I have a hemmoragged blood vessel near the center of my vision in the right eye...had it not been so close to the center I wouldn't have noticed it...Nothing else seems to be out of the ordinary..and after shooting some dye such that the smaller vessels could be examined...I am advised that is should clear up within 2 months...As to what caused it...who knows? High blood pressure and diabetes are known culprits...he also suggested that weight lifters are prone to this condition as well...I am none of those things...with the exception of borderline high blood pressure...so hopefully that's all there is to it...I just had spine surgery through the front of my neck this past summer and I can't bear anymore health trauma...HTF

Oh, your surgery sounds horrible.
Well, at least you got a diagnosis and everything should be fine.

Re: cloudy grey spot in vision in right eye

I had (have) almost the same thing.....I had 2 opthamlic migraines, went to a neurologist, negative for anything like stroke etc, but then headed to the optometrist, who found 3 small hemorrage spots in the subject eye. From there to bloodwork etc....no diabetes, but I am on meds for hypertension. My spot takes on whatever color I happen to be looking at most of the time, and has changed in consistency and shape a bit, I am told by the eye specialist that is will clear in 2 - 6 months, and was likely the result of a b/p surge.

In short, nothing to worry about, but it sure pisses you off.

Re: cloudy grey spot in vision in right eye

Meant to add, it also "Glimmers" at times, which I am told is the light refracting thru the floater area.....he called it an "active" floater......

As I said, not to worry
