Common Eye Symptons

When do I see an Ophthalmologist?

Even if you have not experienced eye problems in the past, you should see an ophthalmologist if:

  • you experience a change in vision in one or both eyes, such as blurring, double vision, blind spots, flashing lights or floaters
  • your eyes experience pain, persistent irritation, itching, discharge or the sensation of a foreign body
  • you have had recurrent conjunctivitis, or red eyes
  • you experience problems with too many or too few tears
  • you are currently taking steroids orally for any other condition
  • you have a growth on the eyelid or the eyelid is incorrectly positioned.
  • you are diabetic
