Hi I was wondering if anyone else has ever experienced any symptoms with their vision and find out that everything is normal after being tested. I was having some strange symptoms that started with seeing these black dots but their not quite like floaters they started as a small cluster that I noticed in the sky on a sunny day. This turned into more of them that I often see a lot all over the walls and then I started getting a lot of after images. I went to the doctors and they sent me to the optician who done a load of tests on my eyes they were thorough because of the symptoms I'd described to them. Including retina scans, dilating my pupils to see in the back of my eye, eye pressure tests, prophery vision tests etc. Everything came back normal. After two weeks my symptoms wouldn't ease so I decided to go back for another test just in case, especially since I was having a new symptom which was flickering in the corner of my eye (as if the light bulb was flickering) and I was getting headaches a lot too. I was getting eye pain as well like burning and a feling like an eyelash was in it. Everything came back normal again (this was a few days ago) although they did say I have dry eyes. But I was told this wasn't the cause of my symptoms only the eye pain. They said they think I'm having migraines but the headache doesn't always happen at the same time as the flickering and the headache doesn't feel bad enough to be a migraine although it's worse and more frequent than my usual headache. I'm also starting to think that the flickering was just the dots moving in the corner of my eye (they move like tv static) It all seems very strange to me and to other people who I explain it to. The thing is I have health anxiety so I go through times where I start to dought what they have told me and think there's something wrong even after loads of intense tests. My question is, has anyone else experienced any visual or eye symptoms but been told that your eyes are healthy by an optician or a doctor? And did it go away? If not feel free to reply to my post anyway of course. Thanks in advance.
