My eyes are still dialated, so this is fun!!

Next week I do have to go  into town for an ultrasound.  My eyes are ok, but in talking with my eye doctor, he says he wants me to get the ultrasound and check my carotid veins checked. (Occular Migrains).  Those zig zag shiny bright lights are what they are called.

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

It starts out, where I can't totally see out of one eye, some not all, then the flashing zig zag lines start in.  It's only irritating in that it messes with my seeing things.  No pain involved at all.  It only lasts 15 min's approximately, then disappears and all is well. 

 

I've tried to figure it out and that has proven useless.  Tried all combo's of "could it be this, or that" but nothing makes sense.  So I'll see what I find out Tuesday.  Maybe we'll be at the same place. LOL Well, it'll be after Tuesday that I find out anything at all.

 

P.S. the doc I saw, is an eye surgeon.

I can see well,but I am concerned about the white flashes of light.My colleague was told by her dr.last October that it is part of aging.

He didn't check inside her eyes though.

I hope I don't have a detached retina.

Is the puff of air in the eye a glaucoma test?

 

Or is it only using the glaucoma testing eye drops?

I have a floater in my right eye. My eye doctor said if I see white flashing lights to call back to see him.
