Good evening everyone, I have been posting a lot today because I get so anxious and paranoid. I will be seeking professional help this coming week.
I have been seeing line floaters ever since I was pregnant which was last year. I got it checked out by 2 different optometrists with dilated exams. The first one said that she saw a lot of floaters in my retina and also a white speck on my right eye and I freaked out and kept calling her asking if she thinks it's a tumor and she said no. She just told me that if I was so concerned about it that I should go see an eye surgeon.
So I went to a second optometrist and she took a picture of the back of my eyes to look at my retina.. it's like an x-ray thing. Also I got my eyes dilated again with her. She saw the floaters and didn't seem concerned, she just told me to ignore it and that my retinas are fine. She didn't say anything about any white speck.
Anyways it's until recently that I think I see double. I wear contacts and glasses.. my eyes like to get dry sometimes during the day. When I take my contacts off everything looks blurry and sometimes I see reflection of an image under that image... or if I'm looking at a digital clock from far away I would see the halo or reflection under it.. I don't really know how to explain it.
However, I just noticed that I only see these images from far away and I would have to squint so everything can kinda go back to one image. If it was double vision I don't think that squinting would improve anything, right?? I think it's just my eye sight being so blurry, am I right?
If it was double vision and something serious would I be seeing it all the time and squinting won't make it better???
I really can't afford another eye exam.. I had like 2 eye exams back to back like in April or May. I'm saving up for lasik.
Please give me some advice on my vision. I know I have a lot of anxiety but this is driving me CRAZY. I want to cry.
