Spot in vision when I blink

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
This started last night. When I blink, there is a little "spot" in my vision in my left eye. It's not there all the time but it's kinda weirding me out. Anyone else have this happen to them?

My mom has this problem. She went to the eye doctor and they said they were floaters. http://www.allaboutvision.com/condit...potsfloats.htm

It could just be something in your eye though. If it continues, I would go to the doctor and get it checked out. Unfortunately, if it is a floater, there isn't anything you can do about it. Your eye will eventually learn to look around it.

I know it isn't a floater, I have those sometimes. It just comes and goes. I'm going to call the eye doctor tomorrow. Thanks for the link.

I have an eye doctor appointment at 3 p.m. today. I'm kinda nervous. I know I don't ask for them often, but could anyone spare some everything is going to be okay vibes? I would appreciate it. Thanks.

I hope everything at the doctor goes well and you don't have a detached retina or anything! I could also be something non-eye related, so if the opthamologist doesn't find anything you could be having a migraine or something and would need a regular doctor.

Is it a flashing sort of light? It may be related to the visual aura some people with migraines experience before the onset of a migraine. They aren't always linked with migraines, though-I get visual auras when I don't have a migraine.

Well, everything is a-okay. The worst part of the visit was that they had to dilate my eyes...I hate that. She thinks it's just a floater. It won't get any bigger and should eventually "float" out of my line of vision. Both of my retinas look perfectly healthy. Thanks for all the vibes everyone, I know they helped

It's a good thing I didn't see this thread before you went to the doctor. I would have told you that the spot meant you were going to develop chronic diarrea. Just kidding. I'm glad you got it checked out by the doctor. It would have have me worried too.
