Question:
I can see and feel my pulse in the vision of my left eye. What might this be?

Answer:
Without a proper exam, this is difficult to diagnose. Anything from a sinus problem to an arteriorvenous malformation in the brain (an abnormal tangle of arteries and veins) could cause this. Please see an ophthalmologist to see what is going on.
