Hi doctor,

I am suffering from peripheral vision for the past one year. I cannot control my peripheral vision by ignoring the people just beside my main vision. It is much wider than foveal vision and it seems like I am staring the person. Please help me to resolve this.

Welcome to

  • This is very rare and can happen both in neurological and retinal problems.
  • Can you give more details about the problem? How it started and what is the duration?
  • Do you have any history of injury? How old are you?
  • Are you using any glasses? What is the vision?
  • Please send your pictures of your eyes and old records for more clear diagnosis and treatment.

Thank you doctor,

There is no history of injury. I am a 22 year old male. For one year, I am suffering from serious schizophrenia and other psychological disorder. First, I thought that people are talking about me even strange. I did not know that I am suffering from a disorder, so as a move to resist I tried to ignore them. Limiting the answer towards eye, I do not look at people, but my mind always wanted to view them. Slowly, I went to unintentional viewing people with peripheral vision. Now my psychological diseases are controlled and I am normal, but this eye thing always troubles me. My psychiatrist could not help me with this part. I cannot watch a blackboard or television at public place because of the fear that I will unwillingly stare people in my view. Like my teenage time, I cannot talk to a person without paying attention to a person say 40 degrees away from it. Wearing an eye glass with broad frames on the side slightly help me by blocking my side view. I am using 1.5 power glasses for both right and left eye only in the classroom, which was prescribed before seven years by the doctor. I am attaching the pictures of my eye.

Welcome back to

I have gone through the pictures of your eyes (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • There are no appreciable problems with your eyes. It looks more of neurological or psychological problems.
  • It is best to wear glasses with restricted view frames till you get used to vision problems. Also, check your glass power once.
  • Get a neurologist's opinion to rule out any nerve problem.
