I have many other visual distortions that doctors have found no reason for. I've been to several Neuros, eye doc....etc. I have floaters, phosphenes, afterimages, snow, you name it. Within the last couple weeks I've developed a new symptom that is very scary for me. When I wake in the morning, I can see the blood vessels in my own vision. Especially if I look at bright or white surfaces. I also notice these veins in my vision when I look at the computer. After I blink, they are very visible but die down quickly until I blink again. I notice these vessels in my vision after standing up as well or after squinting hard and opening my eyes. What could cause this? I feel overwhelmed by yet, another visual symptom and I'm afraid of finally going blind due to all these things.
Thank you for your time!
I am unsure of the diagnosis based on your symptoms. I would recommend that you call one of the neurologists and/or eyeMD’s that you have seen, ask their opinion as they are aware of your complete history and examination.
