| | HELP!!! Vision Changing FAST! Need advice PLZ!
Hi everyone. I am having some problems with my eyes. A few years ago I had longterm exposure to carbon monoxide in a place I rented. When I lived there, I was very ill. I noticed my son kept having issues with his eyes and would make strange faces trying to alleviate whatever he was feeling in his eyes. I also noticed a blue vein type of thing at that time, which is now gone. My Dr. back then said I had a pterygium. I don't know much about that - and think it is now gone. SORRY for the long introduction.
Since we left that exposure, I noticed while at my computer that I started to feel nauseated often - felt like motion sickness. I then (one day in particular) experienced a sudden jolt of dizziness, some slight pressure in my left eye and nearly fell off my chair - vision was blurred and things went dark - then saw some sparkles and vision returned.. I then figured out I may have had something wrong with my eyes and got them checked. When examined, my Dr. said the sickness was because my eyes were constantly trying to compensate and focus. I had a really weird/rare prescription with near-sightedness in one eye and far in the other. Prior to all this stuff, my vision was always 20/20 and fine.
A bit over a year later, I noticed it was harder to see the computer text and things seemed weird with my eyes - couldn't see very well again. Had my eyes checked and the guy who checked them didn't believe that the first exam I had a year earlier was correct - as it changed SO MUCH. I am pretty positive the first one was correct because the guy had been doing his job for many years and I had my eyes checked TWO TIMES to be sure - both times the Rx were the same. At this time, I am struggling with blurriness and nausea again - so I called and setup an appt for another exam this coming week. I'll put my Rx's below for people to see. Any advice, thoughts, input - ideas - anything you have to say is really appreciated. I am frustrated - it's tough to keep changing these prescriptions and having it affect so much of what I am doing and how I am feeling. Thanks....
