Rainbow like halo/slightly blurred vision
I went to bed late this morning (4am) and my eyes were fine. It was a long night of drinking, and i woke up at 9am really thirsty, but i noticed that i had this larger rainbow halo like spot that i see. I cannot see anything physically in my eye. But when i blink, or go from light to dark areas i can see it. Also, it that particular area of my eye the vision is slightly blurred. What could this be? I cant get in to see an eye doctor untilt Monday and its sat. now, and im panicking! Please help.

To clear things up, i have no pain, i do not see halos around lights... lights dont bother my eye. Its just one halo in my left eye. Comparable to the effects of staring at the sun for a second or two and then closing your eyes and blinking.

That problem can be due to some things that are serious including small blockages of the arteries and veins of the retina or leakage of fluid in the retina or pressure problems.

I suggest you contact an ophthalmologists' answering service and plan to get examined within the next 24 hours.

And drop the heavy drinking its not good for you or your eyes

I would wait to see an ophthalmologist tomorrow, you would probably have to wait to see one til then anyway, and that is who you need to see.
