A little background: I am near-sighted with a pretty bad case of\nastigmatism. I've been wearing corrective lenses since I was 6 years\nold. I am 32 now. I see my eye doctor every 12-15 months. My problem\nis that for some time now (a few years at least), I've had problems\nseeing at my focus point in the central part of my eye. Well, I'll\nhave to give an example. Last night, I went to the garage, it was\ncompletely dark in the garage. There was a glow-in-the-dark basketball\nin there that was lit up (it was probably 10-15 feet in front of me).\nIf I look at it directly, all I see is a big blur - no definite shape,\nnot bright, just a huge circular haze - very fuzzy, can't tell it's a\nbasketball. However, if I look off to the side of the ball (just a\ncouple of feet off to the side), I can tell that the ball is a ball.\nThis doesn't happen in daylight - just at night or in dark rooms. It\ndoesn't happen all the time, but I would say most of the time. I would\nassume that it's a permanent problem. I have another eye appt on\n2/19/05. I will ask about it then. However, like I said, I've had\nthis problem for at least a few years now. The only thing I've found\nthat might be related is macular degeneration. However, that mostly\nhappens with people over 50. Since I'm only 32, I'm not positive\nthat's what this is. Plus, since I go to the eye doctor every year, I\nfigured he would have been able to diagnose this. Anyway, I would like\nto know if others have experienced this type of eye behavior or if\nanyone has a clue as to what this might be. Basically, it occurs in\ndark rooms with a faint light somewhere. Thank you.
