Terrible eye pain and visual disturbances getting worse all the time

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have been having such a terrible time for so long with eye pain and terrible visual disturbances. Been to multiple specialists had an mri ct all with no avail. The last few months it’s became debilitating progressing so fast I have no idea what to do. Having to lay in bed with a wet cloth on my eyes for hours upon hours because of the pain. My eyes have became red also all the time. I’ll try and describe the visual problems or at least what I can think of there’s so much. Terrible visual afterimages constantly seeing everything you look at repeatedly, seeing clear outlines of everything you look at whenever it’s bright, tons of floaters, white dots everywhere whenever looking at the sky or anything bright, flashes of light all the time from white to blue or black. Even when I close my eyes I always see blue light even when I’m a dark room with my eyes closed for hours I can’t ever get rid of this.  I never heard of anyone seeing blue like this all the time with eyes closed. Also have an arc of light in the side of my right eye almost all the time, extremely bad light sensitivity, if I see any glare of light or head or taillights or anything it gets burned into my eyes for minutes. I cannot find help it is progressing so fast I’m beyond terrified. I can even look at my phone or anything and look around and see a black outline of whatever I was looking at for minutes. There is so much more going on with my vision and head pressure and so much more I could never list it all. If anyone has experienced anything like this please help me. I have lost all faith in the medical field just keep getting put off months at a time. I Pray more than anything for healing. Please anyone that can help please. Thank you

    I agree with Tiffany. It does sound like uveitis which I have had for 12 years. You need to be referred to an opthalmologist at your local hospital ASAP before you lose your sight.

    And I third that. But if you have had eye exams am baffled. Uveitis would show up. Who has examined your eyes??

      I just saw my opthalmologist this week and have been to four eye specialists who can’t find anything structural wrong. I’m an absolute wreck with my vision and pain getting worse and worse and no one will help you emergency. I can’t wait two months to see another doctor I don’t know what to do. Only God knows I need a miracle this beyond words bad

    Aaron, it has just occurred to me that the other thing that could be causing your problems is optic migraine which I also suffer from. It does not show as any structural problem. I suffered for 3 years before it was finally diagnosed. I was prescribed propranolol and have rarely had problems since then. I don't quite understand why you have ti wait so long to see a specialist. As I said before I wonder if you need to go to a specialist eye centre - in the Uk they are at Sheffield, Liverpool, London and Glasgow.
