| | Worsening Night Vision?
Hello all. Sorry if this is a bit long.
It seems as though over the last semester or so, my night vision has gotten progressively worse, though I can't think of any reason that would be. I've noticed this mostly while driving. Even with overhead lighting oncoming headlights (and often those close behind as well) make it almost nightmarish to see clearly. It's like everything dims way down and the focus goes kind of soft. Distances go a bit weird too. I usually just have to focus on the taillights in front of me, or the white line beside the car. I've also noticed that if I come into a well lit area, things seem flat, almost 2-D and the star-burst/halo around streetlamps seems to be much brighter/denser than normal.
My last exam was about six months ago and everything was normal. I had noticed a bit, but at the time, I thought it was stress from school and my very old glasses with my very not up to date prescription that took a couple of bad dips in the river last summer during an internship.
I've tried everything I can think of. I still have to drive once a week after dark because of an ongoing, off campus group, but otherwise I avoid it as much as I can.
I've never had this sort of problem before, in fact, I've always had fairly good night vision, all things considered.
Does anyone have a similar problem? Any advice/suggestions? It will be at least the end of next month before I can get back home and to my normal doc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
