Hi all, I'm a 24 yo male, I have a history of nearsightedness, contacts have been -2 and -1.5 forever. About four months ago I noticed my eye sight was weird while wearing my contacts, almost like my eyes couldn't focus on the same thing, with my glasses there was no problem. I started getting terrible headaches and went to my optometrist who changed my contact prescription, just thinking it was a little worse. After a couple weeks, my eye sight was changing even while wearing my glasses and my headaches got so bad I had to go to the ER where they did a CT (normal) and referred me to a neurologist. I had a full eye exam which was normal as well as a visual field test and pictures taken of my optic nerve, all normal. MRI results are normal and I really don't know what else to do. Should I get a second opinion from another eye doctor? At this point my eye doctor just thinks it is strain and has prescribed me reading glasses which don't work unless I hold a page right up to my face. I feel as though my headaches have subsided but my vision is still messed up. It feels like my eyes just can't focus on the same thing. Even when closing one eye it doesn't really help the focusing of the eye. I'm really at my wits end and super anxious all the time. Any help is appreciated!
