My problem is that every time i enter a new room it looks like it is filled with smoke. people think i am nuts but i always ask everyone if they see smoke. I also feel like there is something filmy on both eyes. I am only 27 years old but have had 4 kids in the last 4 years. I attribute the decline in vision to tired eyes because i sleep very little. My night vision is also declined and driving at night is becoming more difficult. I always had 20/20 vision growing up. Could it be something more?
no, i doubt it is emergent. especially if it only occurs when you go from the bright light into a darker room.
but even if its not "emergent", it could still be "serious". problems with light adaptation *could* mean retinal disorders like retinitis pigmentosa, etc. i personally doubt thats what you have, but it is within the realm of possibility and no one will know one way or the other w/o an exam.
