    I have retinal eye screening because I'm diabetic, and once they let me see the screen. It was a huge image, I seem to remember it was orange. They pointed things out to me and explained that the eyes were healthy but I can't remember details.

      I don't know what you eye problem is but I sometimes get terrible stinging when looking at the screen. I'm taking Eye Bright tea for it, it's a herb and when I'm drinking the tea my eyes don't sting or go blurry. Eye Bright isn't just good for the stinging, it's good for eyes in general.

      I've been getting headaches and am worried that it may be a brain tumour.  Went to the optician and had a full eye test and he said the back omy eyes were healthy.  They use the digital camera

      When I was at school I used to get headaches when I sat too near the blackboard, it was found that I was long sighted. I wear glasses and don't get them now. Could that be it for you?

      There are many reasons for headaches other than brain tumours so it might be best to try not to assume that. You could be making the headaches worse through stress?

      Oh I know what you mean, once a worry get's it's claws into you it's very difficult to stop it. Are you going to the doc? You might have your mind put at ease.

      I have been to see my GP and she gave me a full neuro test and said it wasn't anything serious.  She also referred me for an MRI, mainly for reassurance.  The trouble is I dont stay reassured for long.  Thanks for replying all your help is making me feel slightly better.  Take care

      I struggle a lot with stress.  I am booked in for an MRI scan (reassurance only) and have asked to be put on the cancellation list.  The pain feels slightly better.  Trying to keep myself busy.  My GP said if it was a tumour she would have seen changes behind my eyes as well as the optician. It takes a lot to convince me.  This is typical of health anxiety.  I have had it for years. Thankyou everyone for your advice, glad to know you are not on your own
