• Why do I feel a pulse in my eyes?


    Question:

    Why do I feel a pulse in my eyes?


    Answer:

    I would need more information to make a determination. Questions such as rate of the pulse (beats per minute), whether it’s the same in both eyes, duration, history of eye injury, or any associated symptoms, would need to be answered.

    Also, is it a throbbing pulse, a neutral beat or a pulse of light in your vision? If this is a new symptom and you find it noticeable and disturbing, particularly if there are associated symptoms, then a visit to an ophthalmologist is necessary to rule out a problem. The symptom you describe does not immediately make me concerned that there is a significant issue but based on the answers to the questions and the exam it is possible that there is something going on that requires attention.
