I am extremely near sighted and now to make matters worse, my astigmatism is also strengthening with the aging process and soon I'll need bifocals. I'm basically legally blind without my glasses on which I need 24 hours a day. To finally put the cherry in top, I also have ocular migraines so you can imagine that my vision is crazy. The kinds of symptoms I experience are bizarre. I go to the eye doctor every June and I can't wait to finally go this time because I am seeing all kinds of things as of late. I have a strange flashing spot in the upper corner of my left eye which is only visible on a bright background and when I move my eyes rapidly. I have a similar one in my right eye, but its not a round spot. Its more like a line. They basically look like after images that never go away but are only noticeable on a bright white background. I can also see a strange cloudy blotch in my left eye but only when wearing polarized sunglasses and when I move my eyes rapidly. I have floaters, flashes, fireworks, noticeable blind spots, shimmers and visual snow. I've been seen by countless specialists and eye doctors. Its an every six month the to a yearly thing with me. I don't know what else to do. I've learned to ignore most of it or go crazier.
