Ghost images and floaters at age 14-15
I'm a 15 year old girl and I've had myopia since elementary school. The myopia was progressing rapidly until 7th grade and now I have about -8.5 in each eye. (But it's not progressing as of now)
The previous summer was very hard for me as it was about 40 degrees Celsius outside and I can't tolerate heat very well. And then I started to notice that my eyes are dry (I'm a heavy computer user but I've never had that problem before)
The following October I began to get headaches and low blood pressure, and then I began to see those little floaters in both of my eyes. My eye doctor said that it's because I'm myopic so my vitreous humor is stretched.
In November I was watching TV, and when white credits began to roll on a black background, I saw a little copy of the text right above it for a moment but I thought that it happened because my glasses were dirty.
The following December I got a bad flu infection (the doctor suspected swine flu) and i was treated with TamiFlu. Then I got that flu again a week after my recovery and again I was treated with TamiFlu.
After my recovery I began to see ghost images not only on the TV screen, but everywhere. For example, when I'm walking under some wires, I see one big blurry wire which actually consists of two small wires - the true image of the wire and the ghost image of the wire which is fainter and blurrier.
Also, my myopia is not fully corrected because my glasses are -7.0
The doctor said that not fully correcting my myopia would train the eye muscles or something.
Also, my mother and father both have myopia and my mother has astigmatism and she also told me she saw ghost images last summer.
Also, I have something like cross-eyedness only the other way around. I have had it since about 6 years of age. When I completely relax my eye muscles, my left eye rolls to the left while my right eye remains focused (also my left eye's vision is worse than the right one's) Sometimes when reading or working at the computer I unintentionally relax my eyes and let that left one roll to the side. By unfocusing my eyes like that I'm able to see two full images (not the ghost images, but two complete images)
Also the ghosting worsens and becomes more evident when my eyes are tired or when I feel sick or dizzy. For example, today I was at the movies and I ate too many chips and I began to feel queasy. Then the subtitles on the screen (which were already "ghosted" a bit) began to be even more ghosted, and the ghost images became more life-like instead of being just "drop-shadows"
So doctor, could you please tell me what's wrong with me? I'm scared and I don't wanna go blind at such a young age.
