Hi everyone,

I have this strange thing with my vision. If I look to the far right or left I see a spot... it's gray and somewhat translucent. This also happens when I look upwards. If I shake my head I can see the spots flickering.

This started when I was 25 and I'm now 34. I managed to live with it but now it's started to scare me as I think it may be getting slightly worse.

I went to an ophthalmologist and he ran every test imaginable and found nothing. He then sent me for an MRI of my brain and orbits, with and without contrast, and again everything showed up fine. Lastly I went to a neuro-ophthalmologist and she too saw nothing.

It appears equally in both eyes. Other than this my vision is fine (I wear contacts). I do have some VS but it's manageable, and I have floaters and ocular migraines.

As far as all test can tell, my eyes appear healthy but there is clearly something going on. It almost feels or looks like there's a muscle being pulled or perhaps circulartory problems? Sometimes I will see my pulse in my eyes and the veins, if that makes any sense.

I just had a physical and I'm healthy. I'm not overweight and exercise regularly. There was a thread that is now closed but it is exactly what I am experiencing, so I at least know I'm not the only one..

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you
