Hi, so I am 19 years old and have experienced a number of visual disturbances over the last few years, the most notable being that I see large halos and rainbow halos around lights at night. Naturally when they started to bother me I googled causes of it, and glaucoma was the overwhelming response.
I made an appointment with an ophthalmologist, who I have now seen three times over the last six months, each time him telling me my eyes look perfectly healthy and I do not have glaucoma. Given that he is a very well-respected ophthalmologist who specialises in glaucoma I am inclined to believe him. But if not glaucoma then what else could be causing this? He also told me he saw no sign of cataracts (something else he specialises in). I am starting to feel like a crazy person but the halos have gotten worse recently and I just can't believe that this is just a normal phenomenon that my eyes are experiencing.
To give some context about my eyes I have essentially 20/20 vision (mild long sightedness in my left eye), haven't lost any central or peripheral vision (at least not yet), but I am very light sensitive and see a lot of floaters.
Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated, thankyou.
