Am I going blind?
Jan 1, 2017
I see glares, my eye vision goes blurry, I see flashes when I close my eyes sometimes, I see static sometimes when I close my eyes and open them while I'm in the dark, my right eye is blurry, I seen a black shadow our the corner of my eye twice, and I seen black floaters the other day for like 1-2 seconds. It seems like It's retinal detachment, but I don't have any of the risk factors for it. I am on my phone all day. My age is 19, If that helps. Also, the symptoms did seem to go away when I kept my phone farther away from my face.(knock on wood) Right now it's just the blurry part and my eyes switching from far sighted to near sighted. Am I going blind? Could this be just short term side effects of being on your phone too much?

If your symptoms were better when you used your phone less it might be worth trying a longer testing period and see if that helps. Also a trip to the eye doc could not hurt.
