I woke up this morning around 9 30am and had a small spot of blurry vision in my right eye. It get progressively larger over a half hour. I would cover my left eye then focus on a single point then move the end of a pen around trying to track it in my peripheral vision. In the lower right quadrant of my field of vision I would lose sight of the pen.
At the largest I would estimate the blind spot to be about 4"x4". Over the next hour it got progressively smaller. At this point, 11am, the blindspot is much smaller but it is still there. It is about <1"x1".
Yesterday I spent about 8 hours in front of my computer writing a paper. By the end of the night I had a mild headache, from the strain on my eyes. Usually I'll put on a pair of sunglasses to do with the glare but I didn't think to because the light in the room was good.
I will be going to a doctor either later this afternoon or tomorrow. I have a few final exams this week and need to complete a paper upon which my graduation depends on so I am pressed for free time. That is why I am posting this.
Does anyone have idea on how serious this could be? Any experiences? I did a google search and couldn't find anything definitive about retina or cornea problems.
