[SOLVED]I've had this since high school (13 years old give or take), but since medical help is so hard to acquire in my third-world country, I never got it checked out. I recently landed a job that had HMO so I'm planning to use it soon, but I wanted to make sure I tell the specialists the correct thins so I can get diagnosed properly- even until now I don't know what to call this problem I have.
You know when you put your eyes really close to the old box TVs and it looks like a bunch of dotted/lined rainbows? Or if you put a drop of water on your phone and look through the colors? That's what it looks like.
I don't know how I get them. I have these “attacks” where I get a speckle of the rainbow spot randomly appear on my vision, it looks like a tiny scratch and it gets worse as time passes- it gets bigger and bigger and it causes blindness for where the rainbow spots are. Whenever this happens, I just know I'm f**ked for the entire day because it cases me severe headaches and nausea.
Does anyone know what I possibly have? For a little eye background, I'm ver near-sighted, have astigmatism, and my glasses are about 475 on each eye (I don't exactly remember the number but they're definitely above 475 each)
