I am 19 years old, no history of eye problems other than nearsightedness. Lately I have begun noticing that I have sort of a staticy vision especially when looking at things that aren't complicated (solid colored walls, the sky) and in dim light. It's sort of like bad night vision I think. It's like a very grainy afterimage or something. What do I call this if I see an eye doctor about it? My vision seems fine (I wear contacts, not a strong prescription) but it's hard to see in dim light. It worsens throughout the day. I look at computer monitors a lot. Is this just because I have bad night vision or could it be infection or something? I think I have had it all my life, just recently I started noticing it more during the day and not just at night.
I don't really know how to describe it... shimmering, sparkling, static, graininess, it's a lot worse when I go from bright surroundings to dim surroundings, and it seems to worsen throughout the day.
I would really appreciate any advice.
Thanks,
Andy
