I am concerned about this.
I’ve noticed that when I go outside I see starbursts around headlights of cars and also when I look up at the streetlights. Before I would only notice them without my glasses but now even when I wear my glasses I see them. It’s like the light extends all the way vertically both bottom and top.
Also, I’ve noticed that when I blink at a light source such as a TV or my phone/computer, I see the light from that object almost like it’s being dragged down every time I blink. It’s like a trail being dragged down from the light source vertically as well. It’s kind of like that light beam you get when you squint your eyes but I see even when I blink.
I’m worried that it could be something serious but I just went to my optometrist about 1-2 months ago and everything seemed fine. I have nearsightedness but only mild. -1.50 in left eye and -1.25 in right eye.
What could this be? Please help!
