Eye and Vision Care
Wavy Patterns in Both Eyes
For the past three days off and on I have been experiencing wavy patterns across both eyes, in fact, there are so many I can`t hardly see. I have had double vision from time to time and the drs don`t know why. 10 years ago I suffered from a concussion and have had problems from double vision every since. Also, nerve endings stay sore on where I was hit by a golf ball.
You may have swelling (edema), blood (hemorrhage), or even a separation of tissues (retinal detachment) in the back of your eyes. Other possibilities are less harmful cholesterol deposits (asteroid hyalosis) or a watery vitreous (floaters).
But to be on the safe side, see your eye doctor today!
