    Any history of exposures to things like Herpes or other infectious agents? I would do my best to avoid touching your eye or you'll scratch your cornea and that will suck even more.

    What sort of testing did they do?

    they did some kind of dye/uv light to test the cornea thing, no exposure to std ever. most i can think about was on the past Thursday i pocked the side of my eye while i was in class where it seemed like i flipped my eyelid for just a second but i fixed it right back. They also flipped my eyelid then to see if anything was there and found nothing

    did they measure the pressure in your eye?

    and what do you mean "pupil wasn't expanding"? (fixed pupil + your sx = acute closed angle glaucoma until proven otherwise)

    if they did, they didnt tell me, this blurry vision issue has only been a thing the past few days, before leaving the ER I did an eye chart read with both eyes just fine

    Edit: like one was normal size and the right one was small, like it wasnt adjusting to incoming light

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    I mean, either you have a tumor pressing on your nerves or it's glaucoma. Random blurry vision is something to be concerned about.

    can you take a video of what happens when light gets shown into your eye?

    glaucoma usually = mid-dilated pupil. CNIII compression usually = dilated pupil. and wouldn't cause eye redness. disagree w/ kurono

    Well right now the light sensitivity isnt as bad as it was when I went to the ER, which is why I went at all. Right now my main issue is the blurry vision AFTER using the meds that they gave me. Back then I wasnt even able to be in the room with my PS4 standby light being on and not wishing I would just die. right now i can keep the eye open for a few but the blurry vision messes me up so I just do my best to keep it covered so i can see with my good one.

    Nothing else? Otherwise I'm just throwing worst case out there. HC is an internist and he knows a lot more than I do.

    this sounds more like acute optic neuritis, i really don't think this is related to the medication. i think it's just the misdiagnosis getting worse. obv without doing an exam i can't tell you what's wrong. do you have a ophtho appointment?

    Thats all they gave me, before I went to the ER i had someone pick me up some "Clear eyes MAXIMUM ITCHY EYE RELIEF" and i tried some of that before but it didnt do anything so thats when i called a phone nurse and they said go to ER. And right now any ideas are better ideas than what i have right now until i see the GP doctor tomorrow morning and they see if i need to see a specialist.

    EDIT: I cant book a specialist on my own or else these guys wont pay for it, I go a free clinic since I dont make enough for insurance and made too much for medicaid

    how bad is the vision now? can you see out of the eye ? can you check to see if your pupil(s) change to light exposure? is the white part of your eye still red?


    @kurono i'm actually in EM
