Pixelated vision all day

For the past four or five weeks, I have had problems with my vision. It all started about 6 weeks ago when I felt this weird pressure around my eyes. I took medicine for ten days, and it didn't seem to help.  After I was done with the medication, I noticed that my vision was becoming "pixelated", which is basically like seeing millions of tiny dots in your vision everywhere you look. At times, I have been feeling dizzy and weak, and can get headaches. Yesterday I went to a doctor and she told me it was just migraines and I am currently taking medicine. It seems as if the dots are getting worse. I spend a lot of time on the computer, so could the bright screen be damaging my eyes? Where I live, the weather constantly changes. One day it will be 65 degrees and sunny, and the next day 20 degrees and snowy. So I think the wather has to do with it too.  I'm not sure if the medicine is only making it worse, or if i'm just going crazy. Please tell me there is a cure for this because this is really stressing me out and is making me feel depressed. I don't think I can take this anymore. I am a very unheathy eater. I don't eat fruits and hardly eat veggies so that could be another reason why.

Make an appointment with an optometrist to get your eyes checked...

I think it's great that you made the appointment with the optometrist.  Ask for "retinal mapping".  

If you have an actual diet deficiency (like scurvy, which is very unlikely in our society) you might have that as a concern, but it's very unlikely,  KM.  

Where are your parents?  You need an advocate here because it doesn't seem like you're getting the help you need,   and just dismissing this as "migraines" or lack of vegetables isn't really moving you forward.

Thank you! Unfortunately my appointment isn't for about 20 days(soonest my father could get). A couple hours ago I have felt this tightness/pressure around my eyes and in my forehead. My parents are doing what they can, but it seems like nobody understands what exactly is wrong with me, which is making me even more depressed. To be honest I think this doctor I had was wrong about the migraines because I don't get headaches too often.

I was just doing some research online, and it seems like I may have anxiety problems. Thanks for the help!

Stress/anxiety can cause a lot of physical symptoms, not just emotional. Try calling back to your doctors office in the morning and see if they have any cancellations. They may be able to fit you in earlier. Good luck
