    Occasional double vision, eye floaters, ghost images? Help?

    Okay. Help please.

    Background:
    -Last eye exam was January 2010. Prescription was -1.25 in both eyes, and the doctor said I had slight astigmatism, but he would not issue astigmatic contact lenses.

    Symptoms:
    -Occasional double vision (especially with white words on a black background, vice versa, or virtually any dark color/light color on a light/dark background). This doesn't happen with anything else but words. It goes away when I squint.
    -Eye floaters (I got these about a week after the double vision. They are very annoying I get them especially in well sun-lit rooms or outside)
    -Ghost imaging (I noticed this about four days ago, especially around light colors such as neon green, red, white, etc). For example, I would see my square pillow on the couch with about a few inches of light ghosting about it. Went away when I squinted. All ghost imaging goes away when I squint.

    Can anyone offer insight? I'm seeing the eye doctor in two weeks. Could this be a result of a worsening prescription and my astigmatism getting worse? I'm very nervous, but the only symptoms I'm having I stated above.

    Thank you for your help.

    I'm guessing that you are still quite young, maybe still studying, using the computer a lot, maybe not getting enough sleep, etc. All of those factors can contribute to visual disturbances of one kind or another.
    From what you say, it sounds like there is nothing in particular to worry about so I'm sure the eye doctor will be able to put your mind at rest.

    Yes, I am in high school. I use the computer a lot and have trouble sleeping. I'm still very nervous about this.

    Hi! I was just wondering if you ever found out was was causing these vision problems? I've been having the same symptoms recently. Especially with the ghost images with white objects against a darker background.

    Thanks!
