    White spots
    ibrielle posted:
    Every now and then one or both of my eyes gets a foggy white spot covering a small bit of it. It usually happens after I blink and it's been happening more frequently than before. It stays there for a few seconds and goes away. I wear glasses for astigmatism and nearsightedness. I was wondering if this is an early sign of a bigger eye problem than either the astigmatism or nearsightedness.
    Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
    Hard to know exactly what this might represent.

    Blink to blink variation in vision may be related to dry eye. The fact that it goes away completely in between episodes is evidence against a major structural change in your eyes.

    It will take a visit to your eye doctor for a full updated exam to make sure there is nothing else going on.
