I am a 29 year old female. Last October I went to the eye doctor to get new glasses and I was referred to an ophthalmologist due to high eye pressure in the mid to upper 20s, even low 30s.
They did a dilated eye exam, mapping of my optic nerve, measured my cornea, etc. They said that my cornea is really thick and my optic nerves are oddly shaped, but there is nothing to worry about at this time. I was prescribed latanoprost which I took and my eye pressure had decreased as it should at my follow up visit in January.
Since then, I have undergone some heart testing due to having palpitations and I ended up going off of the latanoprost, with permission from my doctor. I haven't noticed a large difference in my eyes until recently.
When in a dark room my vision is kind of staticky. Upon waking up at night, or in the morning, the first couple times I blink my eyes there is a grey, see-through dot in my central vision in both eyes. It goes away after a few seconds of blinking. At other times, I see a bluish white ring of light in both eyes that also goes away with blinking.
I do have a lot of health-related anxiety, despite having good bloodwork, etc. And I recently also started sleeping in a dark room, which I haven't prior.
What could this be? I am to schedule a follow-up with the ophthalmologist to discuss things since ending the latanoprost and I will be doing a visual field test in July.
I just want to hear others' experiences to calm my mind in the meantime.
