Dear Dr. Archer,
For several months I keep getting slivers of other images in my vision. I can be driving and looking straight ahead, and shards of another image will enter my sight.
I've also been crying at the drop of a hat, whether it's good news or bad. Even as I am typing this right now my eyes are welling up with tears. I cannot seem to stop this! I don't know what to do. I'm on full disability and my funds are zero. Please help.
Being on full disability, I assume you're on Medicare. If you are not, you need to go to the official Social Security website to get medical assistance. You can also go to your local community medical clinic.
I cannot make a diagnosis as to why you're experiencing images within your line of vision. This needs to be done by a doctor, face to face. Crying can be a sign of depression, but again, this needs to be evaluated in person, not through a short letter.
Please do not put this off. There's a saying that goes, "The best way to get something done is to begin." Make your appointment today so you can start to heal. Good luck,
