I have this eye problem that's been driving me crazy for over 6 months now.
I was in a really bright room and I noticed that I have spots in my vision. Very tiny, not always noticeable, generally in very bright rooms, or places without a lot in them - blank walls, etc.
I noticed that the spots move with my eyes, they are always in the exact same place in my vision.
I got really scared and made an appointment with the eye doctor immediately. He checked my eyes thoroughly and told me there is absolutely nothing wrong with them. He said I may have some protein deposits on my eyes.
That is very likely. My last pair of contacts, I had to quit wearing b/c they had so much protein buildup that I couldn't wear them a full day without being miserable and unable to see. Unfortunately we could not afford new ones so I am stuck with these horrible scratched up glasses (making the problem even worse).
Well, this is all fine and dandy that I'm pretty sure I know the problem and what caused it, but I STILL have these stupid spots, and they are INFURIATING!!!
They are distracting. I feel half-present in my life, b/c I'm constantly seeing them and even going outside (where it's almost always bright enough to see them) has become something I absolutely *dread*. I only want to be in dark rooms. I feel like I can't see right, and it's become depressing. Even looking at a computer screen is something to dread.
I am only 27 and the thought of having to live with this for the rest of my life is... unbearable.
I can't stand this, I want to cry every time I think about it.
I am begging for any ideas anyone can offer. I'm desperate. I want to see normally again. I want to be able to concentrate on someone's face without trying to see around these spots.
Anyone heard of this, have any ideas? Herbal, anything??
I tried a google search but haven't found anything related to deposits on the eyes, only on contact lenses, which does me no good.
I can't get to the eye doctor for probably another month.
eta: also: I am pregnant.
