  • Hi, I don't have your condition but I've had a blurred spot and also missing letters in the past. In my case it was from oedema and got better with injections ( temporarily for me then but improved now fingers crossed).

    Monday will be here soon and you will get some answers from drs so not long to wait , try not to get stressed it definitely doesn't help.

    Wishing you all the best going forward .

  • Thankyou

  • I agree with Eyesright. I am very myopic too. Please also inquire about Retinoschesis. It is caused by retina splitting due to high myopia which causes fluid to get between the retinal layers which can cause distortion. Best to you!!
