Likely clogged oil glands/ meibomian gland dysfunction. Increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids, use a warm compress on your eyelids once a day, and scrub off any eyelid makeup with a baby shampoo and water (50/50) mixture. If this doesn't work, see an ophthalmologist who can prescribe medications to deal with it. HV

Some doctor's recommend AREDS 2 formula eye vitamins if there are features that look similar to age related macular degeneration. regular dilated exams (preferably by a retinal specialist) are also recommended as there are complications that can be treated if caught early. Other than that, there isn't much that could be done. I have patients who ...

Have him see an ophthalmologist again. I would make sure there is no evidence of traumatic damage to the eye and an eye pressure needs to be checked. HV

The laser barricade is usually very safe and the risks are much lower than letting retinal holes go untreated. If you are having doubts, get a second opinion from a retinal specialist and then make your decision. This should be done right away though. HV

Sounds a lot like what we call an "ocular Migraine" which is a cousin of migraine headaches but without the headache.

Probably due to your focusing at different distances.

Very important they do not dilate you before you see the doctor though. HV
