    I suffered an injury to my eye February 2017 but how I had gotten injuried I was riding a forklift and I had went into a pallet trailer and when I did debris or a wood chip from the trailer floor came up and got me in the eye so I had to go to the Er to flush it out and after that my employer that I was working for at the time had set me up with workers comp and I had been seeing there specialists and there eye doctors but they really made it seem like I had nothing wrong with my eye when in fact I'm still having problems to this day but really for a long time I had just thought to give up because I thought that maybe the doctors were right maybe I was just being to serious but am I glad that I didn't give up because as of February of this year I was diagnosed with a cataract which the doctor said is preexisting which is not true 22 years olds don't get cataracts lmao and she diagnosed me with recuring corneal erosion I see halos in my eye starbursts I experience sharp pains in my eye really I was wanting to know if my cataract could be related to my injury because mind you I'm 22 I don't wear any glasses or contacts I have no history of eye trouble I just want a honest accurate answer and no b.s I'm already getting a lot of that from the insurance company

  • Can i put my contacts in hydrogen peroxide contacts solution for over 6 hours?

    I just got my ortho k night contacts. I’ve soaked my contacts in the hydrogen peroxide solution and the case it came with since noon. And I usually sleep around 10 or 11. So my contacts probably soaked for about 9 hours. Is that okay? A lot of people say you have to soak for 6 hours.

  • My eye doctor said I have 30/20 vision? What does that mean?

    Best answer: Either you or the eye doctor made a mistake (and I guess even a doctor might be guilty of a slip of the tongue). They meant 20/30, and footprintz has explained what it means.

  • Why are my eyes dark brown if neither of my parents have dark brown eyes?

    My father has green eyes and my mother has light brown/honey eyes. Is it genetically possible that my eyes can be dark brown/almost black? It's ok if it isn't, knowing I'm adopted wouldn't be a life-changing situation for me

    I’m 16, female, and on birth control pills and nasofan. so a few minutes ago my vision started flickering quite fast, in both eyes. It looked like the lights in the room were dimming and getting brighter repeatedly (they weren’t). it seems to have stopped now. I went for a regular eye test about 2 months ago, and everything was fine aside from one small dark floater that I still have. Over the last few weeks I’ve noticed my vision changing. I’ve been experiencing the entopic phenomena, but on light backgrounds as well as the sky (sparks, dots, etc). I’ve also noticed a blurry spot at the centre of my vision, seemingly both eyes, that seems to spin, especially when I close my eyes. Several times upon waking I’ve also seen a pattern which went away after a minute or so, which seems to change. The first few mornings it was transparent wavy lines, then a honeycomb pattern, then a black and white pinwheel. This isn’t every morning, but the majority. Also, in bright light conditions, I tend to see black dots that move quite quickly towards the centre of my vision then disappear. This will remain until I move out of the bright light. My vision seems to be quite static, especially in dim light and the dark. I’ve had increased afterimages too. This is all becoming very distracting. Has anyone got any idea what might be going on? I’ve asked my parents to take me to get my eyes checked but they say my eyes are fine and that I’m being dramatic. I do have anxiety if it’s relevant.

I have glasses, but they are extremely thick and I don’t want to wear them to school. My prescription is -6.5 in both eyes. I can’t see, so i have to go to school in glasses, but I look so bad in them and the lenses literally come out of the frames. Should i just wear my glasses, or should i try to get through school for 2 weeks with no glasses or contacts on??
