Dead spot in vision



I just noticed I have a dead spot in my right eye.

Pretty much just the absolute center of my vision. I don't notice it when looking straight ahead or both my eyes are open.

Any thoughts? My eye doesn't hurt at all, havn't got anything in it or anything.

Go to the eye doctor... It could be a detatched retina.... My dad has a had a few, and they are not something to mess around with... Anything with my vision and im at the dr within a few minutes...

My dad can no longer see out of his right eye....

Wouldn't a detached retina make me blind in that eye?

But yeah, if it doesn't go away in a little bit I'm gonna go up to the hospital to get it checked out.

Everyone has a blind spot in their vision in both eyes. It's not dead center, but about 10*-15* offset. The reason is because this location is where the optical nerve enters the eye and there are no photoreceptors on that part of the optic disc.

The only way you can notice this is if one eye is closed. Since it's normal, the brain just fills in this missing section of your vision w/ the surroundings.

If its something youre just now noticing, go to the doctors. I agree with SonicBoom, but you wouldnt just now notice this.

i have this same problem. i notice it only at night. i have those glow in the dark stars stuck to my ceiling and when the lights are off n i stare right at it, it disappears within about 2 seconds... its not immediately gone. if i want to see it, i have to look right next to it and itll show up.

in the light, there's no problems.. i think i read somewhere that its normal for it to happen in darkness.. if ur having problems during the daylight hours, id go immediately. maybe ill go now that i think about it.

This is also perfectly normal. The reason is because your night vision is actually in your peripheral vision. Since it's dark in your room and you're using your night vision, looking directly at the object makes it harder to see. When looking at things when it's dark out, it's easiest to see if you just to the side of it.

Just got back from the ER. They couldn't find anything physically wrong with my eye, they looked inside it with a machine. Found out though if I close my left eye its really really hard to read small stuff, anything I'm looking directly at has like a shadow over it. I have an appointment with the eye doctor on monday. =/

I have retinal detachment according to my eye doctor. And I have floaters in my eyes, which are dark spots that move when I look around. Some of them aren't dark.. they're kind of whitish. I notice them more when I'm looking at something bright, like a computer screen or if I'm outside. Sometimes I can see them on darker things too.

When they get in the right spot when I'm reading, they will make a word look fuzzy or blurred out, but if I look one way and then look back again, they will usually move and I can see the word again.

It's pretty annoying, and it can make it a pain in the ass to track down flies or mosquitoes.
