Ive searched the forum and seen similar questions, but i didn't really see an answer..
Ive been seeing floaters in my eyes (both) for awhile now. I am sensitive to bright over head lighting and sunlight and it causes blurred vision and pain in my right eye. It feels more like eyestrain. IT looks and feels nothing like a migraine. Ive seen an optimologist and he said my eyeball looks healthy and to check with my optometrist next. This problem was noticed after a couple migraines i had in December and of course I tend to want to equate the eye problem with the headaches but I'm not sure. Another factor is i also have anxiety disorder. So this is where it gets frustrating.. If you go into a doctors office and say you have either migraines or anxiety no matter what your problem is they want to point at one of those to disorders as the issue. All i want to do is know what could cause the eye pain, the light sensitivity and the floaters or which direction should go in finding out an answer
I think you have a sampling error problem. If its migraine or anxiety causing something that can be a good thing. I recently had a anxious, migraine patient with symptoms caused by glaucoma and another by a brain tumor. So in that context anxiety doesn't look so bad. If you have been checked by an ophthalmologist and an optometrist and neither finds a problems what can I say but its likely anxiety.
If you want to pursue getting a third opinion then see a neuro-ophthalmologist. Find one at www.aao.org
All of your symptoms sound like mine and I was diagnosed with uveitis and prescribed prednisolone.There are few different types, but they have to dilate your eyes to see in the back and when they dilate them the pain normally goes away. I hope this information helps.
