I am 51 years old. for the past 6 months My left eye has been drifting outwards. When I look closely at it I have VERY red veins growing from the inside of my eye over the cornea. My vision is grey and blury, out of the left eye When I touch the lid of my eye when my eyes are closed it hurts. There are also veins growing in my right eye in the same way. But not quite as bad. At night my vision is no longer grey, it is completely GONE. What is wrong with my eyes????

    I agree with dena, please see an eye doctor.  It could be a number of things, some of which can be quickly fixed.  I would not delay.

      I am going in just a few weeks. My job has become a llttle more demanding. I am afraid I will be fired because I am a "liability". I am a waitress.

    You must seek professional help. Your eyes are extremely precious.      I'm guessing you are not in UK as you mention insurance.   Dont be scared,but dont delay.
