Hello doctor,

I have blurry vision in a small section of my right eye, and it keeps moving around. Sometimes, it completely disappears. In addition, I have pain on the inside of my top and bottom eyelids as well as the outer corner of my eye, but I feel the pain only when I blink. This pain is also alternated between those three sections of my eye while I was wearing the contacts, but the pain has settled in my top eyelid now. I also noticed the discharge a couple of minutes ago. These symptoms started this morning upon inserting my cleaned contact lenses. I am currently on Melatonin and Depo-Provera.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Stop wearing contact lenses until the eye is completely normal without redness. Consult an ophthalmologist nearby to check for eyelids and retina for moving things and weak spots (lattice). The moving thing is a floater. It is uncommon in your age unless you are myopic. There is a jelly-like substance in the eye and as age progresses it starts to liquify and you start seeing floaters.

You should go to an ophthalmologist immediately in case if there is an increase in the number of these floaters, or if you are seeing flashes of light. Because these are the signs of retinal detachment. Get your retina checked at least once a year. Right now you have to ignore the floaters and you will get used to it.
