    My night vision continues to deteriorate, and I don't know why despite
    posting on different forums, searching the net, and seeing 3 different

    My problem is that I see massive starbursts around light sources,
    mainly streetlights and headlights. The problem started almost a
    year ago when I got off work one night, and became alarmed when I saw
    halo distortions around lights for the first time.

    Over the months, the starbursts have grown in size, and now I am at
    the point where I dread looking a car's headlight, or driving at
    night. I never would have dreamed that one day, I would fear lights,
    but I do. The bursts are so bad that even heavily shaded sunglasses
    can not filter it out.

    All my research online brings up Lasik as the cause of this
    distortion, but I've never had any type of eye surgery. I am just
    severely nearsighted, and I do a lot of computer work.

    The starburst vision does fluctuate a lot. One set up headlights will
    have massive starbursts, but another will not, or it will change based
    on the angle i am seeing the object. Sometimes I even see them in the
    daytime, and so many people now drive with their headlights on during
    the day. Sometimes, I see other distortions like a neon sign
    appearing as a half double image.

    My amount of frustration is beyond description. Doctors can even tell
    me what's causing my problem, but less offer any solutions. Surely, I
    am not the only person out there struggling with this problem. I do
    have problems with high blood pressure. COuld this be affecting my
    vision in this way?

    Sorry, that was a typo. I meant to say that doctors can't tell me
    what's causing my problem, much less offer any solutions.

  3. Stupid people exist in the world, this idiot Alvin is a great example.

    He searches for answers in the outside world, posting on newsgroups,
    asking stupid ophthalmologist... and does not care a bit to look
    inside of himself, where the root-problem exists.

    These people deserve the pain they suffer.

    You idiot, when you will wake up?

    The world is filled with idiots like you, snake oil salesman who
    promise the world while emptying their wallet. Bad vision is my
    reality, not some mental disease. You can't cure myopia by chanting
    some verse, or some mental masturbation.

    GO away with your stupid posts and false hopes.

  5. I am already away, but you?

    You remain there, stuck in your stupid search, it seems your problems
    are to be blamed on me, what I have to do with them?

    I'm sorry for you, but you are in misery, not me!!!

    I hope you will cure yourself as soon as you can, but following the
    mainstream theories about vision WON'T cure you, as you yourself
    confess with your miserable statements.

    What are you doing for your eyesight?

  6. With glasses or contacts, how large is your uncorrected astigmatism?
    Do you have dry eyes? Ask for a tear breakup time and schirmer test,
    and other things to see the quality of your tear film. Have you tried
    using refresh tears? Does it make a difference?

    Try alt.lasik-eyes too for information.
