I feel your pain. I am 25 years old. For a month I have been suffering from seeing halos and starbursts on lights at night or in dimly lit areas. I have some small headaches in the temporal areas of my head sometimes. I had an MRI normal, Ophthalmologist did full eye exam and nothing. My doctor thinks it's migraines but it's been a month straight. I'm at a loss for what it could be. Did something bring it on for you? I remember one day feeling like I had something in my eye and then these issues started. I have astigmatism in both eyes. With glasses 20/20 vision and i still see these issues. Also some cheek pain. I hope you find resolve, I'll let you know if I do.
You should really go and see an Opthamologist......the halo effect can be the cause of an uncoming migraine,,,not sure if you get headaches right after the whole halo effect
this may not be a vision issue, do you experience migraine headaches?
you're a little young for cataracts but get that looked at too
Sometimes I'll see halos around lights at night when I'm outside and it's very misty out...but if you're seeing them around lights when you're inside, and especially if you're seeing starbursts, that doesn't sound normal. It might be a good idea to go to an ophthalmologist and have a thorough eye exam just to be on the safe side. Optometrists do not have M.D.'s and therefore are not in the best position to determine what might be causing your vision problems, whereas ophthalmologists are fully-qualified physicians..
