Re: Ongoing Vision Problems
From what you are describing, it sounds something very similar to what I have been experiencing for the last year or so.
I am a 39 year old male who has problems with what seems to be supermarket shelves with rows of stuff on them, oriental rugs, white computer text on a black backgrounds, high contrast shop signs. Its like it shimmers or flickers. I dont know if it is the high contrast, or complex patterns that cause it
I have visited with several Opthalmologists, Optomoterists and a Neurologist. All tests have come back normal.
Eye sight is good, normal OCT, pressures, field vision, retina good, optic nerves healthy. I had an EEG and MRI with contrast. Both normal.
If I close either eye it completely goes away and if i wear sunglasses in the supermarket it becomes less noticeable.
It feels like either contrast or horizontal lines are causing this. I can look at the exact same pattern from another angle and it seems to ease it. I don't know if this is the same for you.
The Doctors seems to be at a loss but Optomoterists seem to think that it is binocular in nature but offer no solutions! It is frustrating to say the least and am hoping for it just to go away which is what the neurologist seems to think will happen.
I also have floaters too and occasionally suffer from flashes.
Rest assured, I don't think that anything you are experiencing is serious but more irritating than anything else and when all the doctors seem clueless it just furthers the curiosity.
