More of a statement to compile information in one post for people to read when they research. Only a 2000 character limit so I will be brief. Was born with congenital condition that means blindness in left eye. Eyesight fine until age of 19 blurred vision, tired eyes etc. Saw optometrist, sight fine but referred me to Royal eye hospital because of scratches on Cornea. Seen by specialist team, said scratches may have been from injuries as a kid, fighting with sticks, horseplay etc. Said sight was fine but my problem was dry eyes, due to computer work or dry skin/flakes falling in eye.
June 2011 same symptoms, saw one optometrist, said I needed glasses. Saw another said I didnt need glasses and gave me dry eye drops, both extenisvely tested eyes, one commented "health of the eye is fine". Had same symptoms on and off since xmas 2011. But recently I have been seeing a haze around lights. Saw optometrist, tested pressure test, glaucoma, I think he did a slit lamp test too. Recommended glasses. Got the glasses vision much improved. Still see a haze around lights, which I mentioned, again he said its dry eyes. The haze fluctuates depending on the day, and on one night the haze was gone, but the next day was back again, its not affecting me other than annoying. The haze is same colour as the light itself, and is not a halo, but a haze. With traffic lights its kind of when a child colours in a circle but goes over the lines somewhat. One md online said put eye drop in and then look at the light.If there is improvement with the drop, issue is dry eye related. Tried this and improves it for 1 minute or so, but then the haze returns. Researched yesterday and my flaky red scalp appears to be seborrheoic dermatitis.
Could optometrists (3) have missed something? Can dry eyes cause this? How long will the drops take to resolve the dryness?
