Blurred vision, one character appears as multiple copies in a circular patter

I am experiencing blurry and distorted vision in my left eye.  One object appears as many copies of the object in a circular pattern.  One star in the sky appears as a ring of about 16 stars.  The same distortion is seen looking at a single LED light or a character on a printed page or computer screen.  Is this a known symptom which describes a known eye problem?

You should tell your parents and have then take you to see an ophthalmologist.  Your symptoms are not normal and deserve immediate attention.

I am a community leader on med help, not a doctor. I am also an experienced eye patient.

It is a symptom that indicates that you need to see an eye MD immediately

One of the doctors will respond as soon as they are available, but you need an exam by an EYE MD, an Ophthalmologist right away. Find one at www.aao.org.
