The last few nights I have been troubled by on awakening

Customer Question

The last few nights I have been troubled by on awakening during the night seeing strange objects in front of me and moving around the room and even landing on the ceiling. This
only happens during the night and only in darkness. I am 90 years of age and have all my faculties. Myright eye is the only eye affected.

Hello.

There are many reasons this might happen.

An eye problem: since it is one eye, and you need an immediate exam.

A brain problem, such as a seizure less likely.

A state in an out of sleep where such phenomena can occur....doesn't sound like this, if you are fully awake.

I would start with an exam from your doctor today.

If that is clear, an opthalmologist should be consulted.
