Are your eyes itchy or watery?
If you are suffering from prolonged itchiness and watering of the eyes, you could have an allergy to pollen, pet hair, or other foreign substances in your environment. The condition can be uncomfortable, but does not usually result in significant vision loss. Your eye may feel irritated and tired. Dry eyes can also cause itch and tearing. Your eye doctor can accurately determine the cause of your eye discomfort and advise treatment.
Do you see floaters in your field of vision?
The dark, distinct spots you sometimes see in your field of vision are called floaters. Floaters occur when small clumps of the vitreous (a jelly-like fluid) inside the eye detach from the inner wall of the eye. Seeing floaters can be an indication of vitreous detachment, or a more serious problem like diabetic retinopathy which causes blood vessels in the retina to weaken and burst. The resulting blood that seeps into the eye forms floaters. Floaters can also be caused by retinal detachment, a serious condition when the retina of the eye detaches from the rest of the layers of the eye. If you see floaters, see your eye doctor for early diagnosis and treatment.
Are you seeing flashes?
Flashes appear as arcs of light across the field of vision, or sometimes as flashes of light. Like floaters, flashes are eye symptoms that are commonly associated with vitreous detachment and, more seriously, with retinal detachment. If you see flashes, see your eye doctor for early diagnosis and treatment.
Other Vision Problems and Symptoms
There are many other symptoms that can occur due to eye problems. Eye pain can be due to scratches on the cornea or internal pressure, which might signal a dangerous form of glaucoma. If you suffer from excessive crusting of the eyelid, it could be due to allergies or eye infections such as pink eye. If you suffer from any problems with your eyes or vision, see your eye doctor for early diagnosis and treatment.
