This is my first post but i have been following others for some time. I am 51 years old and was severely myopic (-15) before having Lasik about 18 years ago. My vision gradually got worse until I became about minus 6. I noticed a yellow blob in my right eye vision earlier in the year which developed into a blind spot to the left of my central vision. Also wavy lines in both eyes. After one optician told me there was nothing to worry about a second optician referred me to the eye hospital where I was brutally told I had myopic MD and as it was dry it couldn't be treated and I would be monitored. After paying to be seen privately I was reassured that even though I had a blind spot there was no reason to suspect it would get worse and my corrected sight was pretty good. I had a follow up appointment on the NHS 3 months later (3 weeks ago) and the blind spot was the same. However in the last couple of days I have noticed the yellowness has returned around the area of the blind spot and the vision in this area is not clear. This is now affecting the central vision in that eye. I am so scared i will go completely blind in that eye but even more scared that if it can happen in one eye it could happen in the other. I will phone the eye clinic tomorrow (closed by the time I could call today)
Sorry for rambling but has anyone else had a myopic blind spot and did it get any worse? I have felt so bad all day. I haven't been able toconcentrate at work or eat and keep closingng my good eye to see how my vision is.
