Hi twice now in the past 3 months my left eye has suddenly lost focus for up to 60 seconds and then regained focus. It is very strange and concerns me. I wear corrective contact lenses and am 52 years old. I need progressive lens correction but the eye doctor has me using a near lens in one eye and a distance lens in the other. The results are not super but it keeps me out of glasses. I do regularly get ocular migraines as well but this new sudden and short loss of vision in the left eye is new. Do I need to be concerned?
Thanks for your reply. I will book an appointment with my optometrist. By lack of focus I do not mean loss of vision. I can still see but nothing is in focus. It's like I see a total blur and I try with all my effort to refocus and it eventually regains focus. My left eye feels weird a lot in that it feels like it could once again go out of focus almost any time. When these "spells" occur I feel like my eyeball is moving around but I don't think it is although I've never had the chance to look in the mirror when it is happening. Please let me know if you have anymore thoughts and I appreciate your help.
