    I am not a medical person, but for the past few days in the lower left portion of where my right eye can see it seems to be blurry and feels like something is detached slightly from my eye. almost feels like there is a slight pressure behind my eye. I don't really know how to describe it so i took a shot in the dark and thought i would ask here.

    Like I said, go see an ophthalmologist.

    Even the medics on GBAtemp, and most of us are not that, will have to have a look with the proper gear for this one. What little I do know says it could be something minor or it could be something quite major, and I am quite deliberately not naming conditions/symptoms and will discourage you from looking things up.

    As a general rule any kind of persistent or localised vision change, especially sudden onset (or after a blow) with pain as well, is "get yourself to a relevant doctor" time. As it is new year's eve I don't know if I would bother with A&E/ER and I assume you are not going to get an appointment at your GP/family doctor today or tomorrow.

    Not to be rude or anything, but why did you ask GBATemp?

    Was at a recent men's group that had a health professional answering questions. One of the men described something very similiar where he's developed a patch in the center of his vision. Sadly the discussion mentioned its something he'll have to cope with the remainder of his life. It sounds like an issue many if not most people will develop and usually not discussed around associates or family, and the guy was only in his early 30's

    Since then it's made me subconscious with annoyinging squiggles near and far vision. The underlying importance is people should take care of their body better than their precious retro console systems. Vitamins and maintence, don't neglect

    You might have dirt stuck in your eye. It would most likely be uncomfortable if so, but still, try dripping some eye drops in the eye, blink a lot, drip some more if needed, and see if it helps. Usually helps a bit for me.

    I have the same problem. Get to a eye dr asap you either have had a stroke in your eye or a busted blood vessel.

    I don't think the Temp is the best place or conducive for medical advice; see a doctor.

    Yes, go to a doctor, it could be something where if it isn't treated it gets worse or permanent!

    Don't put it off, at all. I went to the doctor's earlier this year for an ear problem, and they told me that it was very wise of me that I took care of it the second it started up.

    i don't know about that but i know that we all have a blind point in both eyes, you just need to find it, and it's fun when you find because your brain try to fill the spot with the colors around it

    You can always try that light trick with flash on and seeing if you see white in there. God forbid, but you can always try it.

    But, being serious, you should go to a doctor, eyes are not something to fuck around with. Considering how sensitive they are.

    See a doctor.
    You're in the USA? Go to a family med doctor and have them take a look. If it's something serious, they will get you in same day to an eye doc.

    The most important thing is this: what is happening is not normal.
    DO NOT let the doctor send you home without a definitive diagnosis and treatment plan.
    Also, make sure you are seeing a real doctor. They will have MD or DO after their names.
    If your provider had an 'NP', 'ARNP', or 'PA' after their name, ask to see a real doctor.

    Medical care providers are only interested in collecting a paycheck and clocking out at 5PM.
    You are the only one who can ensure proper treatment for yourself.

    Well I definitely couldn't tell you why you're vision is going out like that, I know that whenever I get massive migraines I lose most of my vision in my left eye until the headache passes. It's very disorientating, because things don't just fade out, they get really blurry, but not like an out of focus lense, it's like theres a river in your eye constantly moving and changing direction.

    You're probably just going blind from staring too long at LCD screens.

    Just another go to the ophthalmologist on this one from me as well, also - as soon as you can make time. It could be many different things, from inflammation, to blood flow issues, cataract, to the retina slightly separating. In the last case immediate treatment can fix stuff, or prevent further damage - this is why we are urging you to see a professional, fast. :) It doesnt have to be that - but because of it you always send people in to get that looked at asap. The first visit will not hurt either (they''ll look at your retina with a slit lamp, and magnification and diagnose from there). ;)

    edit: Just realized, that this was an older thread. Hope you are doing well. :) But the emphasis on seeing an ophthalmologist in this case is definitely right - so lurkers who might read this, remember that as well. :)
