What's wrong with my eyes?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi !

I am a 19 years old teenager and i have a problem with my eyes for about 9 years. Is like this: once in a while ( 3-4 times a month or once in 3-4 months....it depends) my eyesight gets like watching through a binocular on the other side....if you understand what i want to say. This last for about 5 minutes but during this my hearing is strange, i think it sharpens a little bit and i am a little agressive. Even if i close my eyes the black is different...far. What could it be?

Sorry for my english!

    I think migraine is the most likely diagnosis. You don't mention headache but migraine does not always have a headache anyway and there are lots of different types of migraine.  The crucial factors are: your condition seems to be benign as it has been going on for 9 years and the symptoms evolve over 5 to 15 minutes and then completely fade away. I wonder if you have any trigger factors like stress or something in your diet that may cause particular episodes and if any of the standard migraine treatments from your GP might help.

    Hve you asked you GP about it?

    Robert sounds right, it could well be a form of migraine. As long as there's no pain involved or any stressful situations coming out of it, you could just kick back and enjoy it! After all, how many of us get to see the world through reverse binoculars? You may just be one of the lucky ones!

    I get the visiual disturbance part of migraines which I now understand is known as auras.

    But for years it had no name. To me it was just my five minutes of animated Picasso paintings driving slowly through my vision from right to left. Fun!
