Help I have been recently had my eyes dilated and examined by a neuro-opthomologist. I was referred to him by my neurologist who I've been seeing for my chronic headache disorder. The opthomologist told me I look completely normal. But my eyes keep fogging over spontaneously. It tends to be much more frequent and severe in my left eye but also happens in my right eye at times. Sometimes I can "blink away" the fog as it starts, but other times I have stood over the sink and rinsed my eyes with water for an hour and my vision is still foggy. It is as if I there is a thick fog in my vision, around lights, etc. It has allways resolved within a half day, or the next morning. Do you have any idea what maybe wrong? I am 28 years old. male, white. Thank you
Yes i also wanted to mention that when i stare at one fixed spot for a while (20+ seconds) everything surrounding in my periphreal vision begins to fade away..not so much black out as just blur together
Also I do not nor have I ever worn contacts. I used to wear glasses but that was because my job involved driving. I do not wear glasses anymore unless I'm driving at night (which I rarely do). I am 20/50 (i think) but I have no need to wear my glasses especially because they provoke my headache (constant 24/7 pressure in head).
