I recently went to my opthomologist about being able to see my pulse or heart beat in my eyes after physical activity.
I don't see it or notice it when I am sitting still, however when I run on the treadmill or run up the steps to answer the phone or something, I can see my heart beat or pulse in my eyes. I have done so much research online and haven't found any info, however I do find that there are message boards with many people who have the same symptom as I. My eye doc did not find anything. He said my eyes checked out perfectly. So I am confused. Is this normal?
Several people have complained of this on these websites. I think you would need to see an Ophthalmologist Eye MD and a cardiologist and have both clear you before saying its not anything serious. If your "eye doc" is an optometrist you have not had a medical eye exam. you need to see a physician Eye MD ophthalmologist. Find one at www.aao.org If you did see an Eye MD then get a second opinion from a neuro-ophthalmologist.
