Ok I have really bad eyesite firstly. Haven't had new glasses in a year. Last night I got those dots in front of my eyes like when you are looking at a flash and my eyes hurt. Went away after I rested my eyes. Today it's happening again. could there be something wrong or could I need new glasses and my eyes are getting stressed? How long abouts do I need to worry about it?

i wear glasses and have noticible eye strain at times.<br>
my vision gets very fuzzy.<br>
it's especially pronounced if i read or crochet or somesuch for long periods.<br>
if it makes you feel better, take more breaks.<br>
have you considered getting another eye exam?<br>
my eye doctor recommends once a year.

I can't get another eye exam I don't have it covered on our insurance <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I'm pretty sure it's because i've been knitting. It does make me feel better someone else is going through it!

An exam should not be too expensive. Here they are not covered under private or provincial health and it is only $85. Dh gets his done at a different place and his are $50.<br><br>
It'd be worth it to check it out. It could be something like migraines or early retina detaching.

LOL I wish. Eye exams alone are about $85-90 around here. I don't have that right now. It's not migraines cause my head doesn't hurt. I'll just have to deal with it till I can see an eye dr
