Hi everyone
I had eye test two weeks ago after struggling on and off with blurry vision, dry eyes, taking my glasses on and off every two minutes, i can see with them on and cant see with them on and same when they are off. Got two pairs of new glasses, great one for reading and tv and everyday pair. Thought great this will really help, wearing my old glasses today as the other ones are not so comfy and I am still having the same blinking (he he ) problems.

Sorry to hear that Wanda, sometimes it can take a while for your eyes to adjust to new glasses, if you feel you cant get on with them go back to the opticians. :goodluck1:

:wave: Hello everyone i was wondering when somebody was going to ask the question about eye sight.I myself have had trouble with my eyes :crazy: , Possibly more frequent over the last 8yrs or so.I appear to have rather a lot of migraines :shock: , where i can only see half of what I'm looking at :? . then i get these zig zag lines starting to appear then followed by a pain at the top and back of my head :facepalm: . I have to sit down for at least 30 Min's for it to go away, this happens quite regularly.Another thing is that bright light hurts my eyes :shock: ,Whether its from daylight ,car headlights, computer screens :pcsmash: , television, fluorescent lights, etc. Had my eyes checked at opticians said I'd failed field of view test. I had an appointment at hospital i was told nothing wrong he said I'd got 20x20 vision, Googled bright lights hurting eyes and it came back with fibromyalgia, another thing is that flashes from the sun past hedgerows or from cameras etc set of my migraine within minutes of it happening. I was wondering if anyone else suffers with similar symptoms thanks :xmaswave1: :xmaswave1:

Hi Link :xmaswave1: I to suffer very bad headaches just like you, even the snow hurts my eyes, bright lights cameras, but what helps Me, is a pair of sunglasses, But you should ALWAYS get things checked out by your GP, NEVER put anything you take down to FM, hope this helps you. :santchimney1: :xmastree1:

Hi there,
Yes I get trouble with my eye sight. I have trouble concerntrating on words and things often get blurry and I get very bad sinus trouble. I went to see the optition last week and they said I have a slight prescription for glasses. It is horrible when you have so much pain and trouble yet they come back and say they cant see anything wrong. Hope you are ok. :) x
Merry Christmas .... x

Hiya

I was reffered to an opthamoligist a couple of months ago. I get floaters/worms and double vision but ive also started getting flashes at the side of my vision and occassionaly see coloured spots. dont get much pain although i can feel my muscle straining when getting double vision. I had 3 or 4 operations when i was younger to correct a squint in my left eye but all of a sudden its came back...???

I have always had bad eyesight and have to pay an arm and a leg for my glasses to be made thinner (instead of milk bottle bottoms) so I very rarely go to the opticians, I try to persevere with the glasses I have, and before you say it I know its silly but its so expensive. But after reading all your comments I am defo. oing now, cos at the minute I am using a magnifying glass to read things as well as my glasses. Beside all the blobs and zigzagz and stuff I have experienced, I thought it was cos I need stronger lens. I hate going to the opticians cos my lens get stronger and stronger I have visions of a pair of binoculars with arms next. But you lot got me worried now.Guess I will have to start saving real quickly.
