I started feeling a sort of blurriness in my left eye in October. Thinking it was just my prescription, I went to an optometrist to have a refraction done. The optometrist was unable to find my prescription for my left eye, and recommended I go to a retina specialist. After my appointment with the retina specialist, I was told that there was nothing wrong with my left eye, and on top of that, he told me that my left eye was in better condition than my right eye. A couple of months later I noticed the blurriness getting worse, so I went to see an ophthamologist. He too couldn't find anything wrong with my left eye, and recommended I go see a nerve specialist. After a couple of tests done with the nerve specialist, same deal. He couldn't find anything wrong. My left eye keeps getting worse and I can't figure out what the issue is. I sense a kind of blurriness which seems as though my left eye is unable to focus on anything. According to the ophthamologist I saw, he was able to prescribe me enough to make my eye sight 20/20, but the issue was still there. Although I had been prescribed 20/20, I was still seeing this blurriness/non-focusable feeling in my left eye. I have worn glasses all my life, and I use my computer a lot, but I have never faced an issue like this. I have been through five appointments, and all of them tell me the same thing. They all tell me that there's nothing wrong, and that my left eye seems to be in better condition than my right. I'm really scared that I might go blind on one eye, and I am sitting here doing nothing about it. A couple of years ago, one of my eye doctors told me I have a mild case of dry eyes. Now I don't know if that could be the cause of the issue, but it sure is relevant information. I'm going to make another appointment with this nerve specialist to take two more tests which involve examining how the nerves from the retina to the brain transmit, and another similar test which I can't recall. Hopefully one of these tests shows some kind of solution to this problem, but I wanted to know if anyone out there has had the same problem, and of course if you have a solution. Any help is appreciated.
