Well, at least in my life :p


I've suddenly developed something weird. Anytime I see a source of light at night (ie headlights of incomng cars or street lights), there is a small black "hole" in the bottom left of the circle of light. It's just there for every single light source...wtf? IE....if I saw 20 lights ahead, I'd see 20 black holes, one in each light source.

It's a blind spot, a part of your eye where the pupil cannot see a certain part of light, and it makes it black.

hmm, weird.

Are they black or are they just not there?

I think we should take away your Mod status and give it to me. It seems that you've lost your mind ;)

Do they tell you to eat people and pop popcorn?

I think its due to a lack of a certain vitamin (A, D, E, or K, I think...) One of those. I could be totally wrong...

If that's the case, then it could be because of a hole or tear in the retina, and should be checked A.S.A.P. If caught early enough, the condition is treatable. :)

@RP: Have you been in any sort of accident of gotten hit on the head recently? That could cause a retinal injury, therefore creating a black or blind spot. :) Anyway you might want to go to this page (http://my.webmd.com/content/pages/13/79969). There's a lot of links there that might help you figure it out.

A retinal tear wouldn't create a dark spot on each light he sees.

There is a kid in my class that got hit in the eye with a volley ball, hes now blind in that eye. But he doesn't make a big deal about, either.

It's clearly not a blindspot...because it isn't in one place.

It's just in every "light source".

Meaning....it's not in one set place. If a light is at the very right and moves to the left...the blackspot stays with the light and moves from right to left.

The natural blind spot inthat picture is a single spot on each eye and is not, "black" but rather filled in by the brain with whatever color is near it. The demonstration on this (http://serendip.brynmawr.edu/bb/blindspot1.html) page is pretty cool.

Hmm, eyes sensitive to light?

this is hardly a wtf.... when weird things are happening with your body, most people usually go to a doctor, sheez :p Ive got an ingrown toenail atm.... OMG WTF !!!1101

nah, its from running with tight shoes :)

I would suggest you review with your GP, who may suggest review by an optometrist/opthamologist as required....

and yeah, try and normalise your sleep patterns. When the eyes are tired they do strange things fella

If it only lasted that long, then it was probably not your eyes, but your brain. You were probably having a migrane (possibly caused by fatigue), same kinda thing happend to me, only it was like a blind spot that was always there, like if I looked straight at something it would dissapear, like in that page rhett linked to. It was almost like I had x-ray vision. :p
And if I wanted to read something i'd have to sort of look away slightly.
But yeah, the doctors said it was because of a migrane, I had no headache either. I dunno, though, it coulda been your eyes, i'm no expert.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys.

Yeah, because it's really normal to have a mod that thinks Satan attacks him at night.


Oh snap.

I've had something similar happen, though it wasn't a blindspot. I was really tired and was running low on food. I actually started to lose my vision. I couldn't read a single thing. I had to shove my face right up in front of my screen AND wear glasses that I haven't worn in years and still had to take 30 seconds to read a single sentence. It scared the crap out of me. Thought I was going blind.

That's weird. But since it's fixed, I declare this thread free to spam!
