Dear all, let me re-start a thread compiling all the information in a more systematic way.
I am 46 years old.
-January 2020: go for my annual glaucoma test (glaucoma runs in my family: mum and grandma). All fine (a bit high pressure) but developing Presbyopia. I am told my long distance sight is exceptional.
Right eye: SPH=0.0, CYL=-0.50, Axis=0.95, Near-ADD=+1.25
Left eye: SPH=0.0, CYL=-0.50, Axis=85.0, Near-ADD=+1.25
-Day 0 (about 1 month ago): headaches start (haven't stopped since then)
-Day 3 and 7 (approx): I remember telling my son that my sight is not as good as it was
-Day 12: I am having difficulties working, my glasses for presbyopia seem to not be working. I close my right eye and notice that everything is super blurry with the left eye. Short and long distance, very poor sight with the left eye. The right eye has worsen too, but not by any means as much.
-Day 14: go to the GP, who refers me to the Opthalmologist
-Day 14: seen by the Ophtalmologist in the Eye Clinic. Wasn't able to see even the large letters with the left eye, but with a pinhole, magic, everything became super clear (able to see even the tiniest letters). The ophtalmologist looked inside my eyes and says everything looked fine (apart of a bit of high pressure in the left eye). Must be a refractive problem. Recommends me to go to the optician and see if glasses can correct this.
-Day 16: visit optician. Come out with the following prescription:
Right eye: SPH=0.00, CYL=-0.75, AXIS=100.0, Near-ADD=+1.25
Left eye: SPH=-1.00, CYL=-0.25, AXIS=80.0, Near-ADD=+1.25
Both eyes: BVD=10.00
-Day 23: I go to collect my new glasses. They don´t help my left eye at all. They measure again my sight and provide a new prescription. Headaches continue (there hasn't been a day without them)
-Day 29: blood test to check for diabetes (results not ready yet, but I've measured my glucose levels at home and they seem totally fine)
-Day 30 (Today, morning): I go to collect my new glasses again. They are better, but still don't work well for my left eye. There is only one specific distance I can use the glasses with (about an arm distance), like if I lost the ability to focus to other distances.
-Day 30 (afternoon): Seen by the optician again. My new prescription:
Right eye: SPH=0.00, CYL=-0.75, AXIS=100.0, Near-ADD=+1.25, Inter-ADD=+0.75
Left eye: SPH=-2.25, Near-ADD=+1.25, Inter-ADD=+0.75
I feel like there's something quite odd here and am so tired of the headaches. Yesterday I had to take some codeine because ibuprophen/paracetamol weren't working.
Any help or guidance is much appreciated. I'll see my GP on Tuesday.
Sorry for the long post and thank you very much if you have read all this,
