I had a car accident 2 month ago and about 10 days ago, my vision/eye got strange. Often, I move my eye to see something, my eye try to focus, like a camera in a sec and I can see clear. past few days, got worse. My chiropractor told me that it is common to have these issues after an accident. So I went back to my doctor and the nurse checked my eyesight. Then I realized that when I cover my right eye to read letters, my left eye sees letters all tilted! It was strange feelings. They are sending me to eye doctor in a week. Could you give me more advise, is it safe to wait that long or should I go to ER to check it out??? I am 45 and no health issues other than neck pain from accident. Thank you.
