    I've been noticing some disturbances in my vision recently. I'm not sure if it's something that happens more often and i'm only just paying attention or if it's started recently. I guess the best way I can explain it is being similar to the disturbances you get after a bright light has been shone in your eyes or you've had some water in your eye- that kinda bright fuzzy thing.
    Other than that I think I have reasonable eyesight. I do occasionally get the odd thing like floaters or spots, but I assume that is normal to get on occasion.
    I do also have dyslexia which causes some abnormalities, but that's something i've always had and has never been a problem really. I've seen somebody for that and apparently it's not my eyes that are the problem, but my brain not quite fitting the images from my two eyes together quite right.

    Anyway, I guess i'm just wondering if it's worth seeing anybody or if it sounds normal. Thanks.

    I would. Your sight isn't worth risking for the cost of an eye exam. When was your last one? We get them every year, including my son who doesn't need glasses.

    I would, especially if you haven't had your eyes tested in the past couple of years
