So awhile back I went through a lot of paranoia as a diabetic about losing my eye sight, I actually think I made a post here and thats why I ended up joining the site. Anyway I went to the eye doctor and all that blew over, no problems, just a slight (Gonna spell it wrong) Astygmatism? Er something like that, anyway, today was pretty normal, nothing wrong with my vision. Then I went and took a nap a few hours ago and when I woke up I noticed I saw a small spot in my vision, not a dark splotch or anything very obvious. It's more like when you look at a light for a moment and you get that thing in your vision for awhile.
Anyway I thought thats what it was and didnt think much of it. This was a few hours ago, now I can still notice it. It's not blocking vision completely or anything like that but Im starting to freak out, I can only see it consistently when I close my right eye, and when using my left eye it's more of a greyish spec. As I said, it's like what you get when you stare at a light. Which all Ive done is look at my computer screen for awhile tonight, though it happened when I woke up, not after staring at it for abit.
I had my mom look at my eye when it first happened, I was curious if she could see any blood but according to her the only thing she saw was that my eyes were blood shot and stuff. I even looked in the mirror myself and didnt see anything like that. I dont know if Im wrong or not but I was under the impression that if blood was blocking my eye sight Id be able to see it on my eyelid, but I dont know if thats true or not.
Also I recall hearing that if I didnt get it taken care of IMMEDIATELY I would go blind, which Im scared about because it's 4am and I dont know of any eye doctors open at 4am. Im not sure if a hospital deals with that sorta thing.
Sorry for that lengthy post, Im just freaking out a bit here. I really dont want to go blind.
EDIT- Sorry, let me clarify. I said "speck" it's bigger than a speck, but it's not covering my entire eye or anything, it's just a small spot in my vision. Sorry.
