I am a 34 year old diabetic with sinus issues.
For the past 13 years I've had some blind spots in my vision in both eyes. If I look at a wall clock and close my left eye, the 1 and 2 vanish and the 6 to the 8. There are some in my left eye as well. I can see them when I close my eyes, they are slightly brighter. Also if I look for them they almost 'shake'. Its like they are all static. Sometimes they create blank void and other times they are grey blobs. It depends on what I'm looking at. They have not changed or grown in all the years they have been there. I normally can see fine as the other eye makes up for the spots.
Recently I've noticed small new spots in my left eye in my center vision. They are close enough to my center vision and over lap with the spots in my right eye that I notice it when looking at small details, such as these letters.
Over the years I have spoken with 5 different doctors about these spots. They have all said it not diabetic related and my eyes look really healthy. It had been suggested that I have dry eyes, and sometimes I do have issues with that, but eye drops (natural ones I bought from the doctors eyes) have helped but not with the spots I mentioned. They have not helped with the new spots.
Today I spoke with a new doctor and he repeated the same. Said my eyes look healthy, no signs of dry eye or diabetic damage. He suggested it may be neurological and there may be a tumor resting on it causing the spots. I have had xrays and MRI's done on my face and skull for sinus issues a few time since these spot have been there. Although they are not looking at my sinuses, nothing abnormal has ever shown in my ocular area. Also this is the first time in over 10 years I've noticed any growth or changes with the spots.
He is sending me to a specialist to check for said possible tumor but also said it could take up to a year to get in. I have no pain or budging in my eyes at all so I really don't think it's a tumor and would like to ask other possible reasonings. Any ideas?
