Anyone have any ideas what it would mean to wake in the middle of the night and when you opened your eyes you saw the color orange?? It was not described to me as dots just massive color. The lady that told me about this is 80 some years old and has some health issues. She thinks it is from her supplemental oxygen of 2 liters she wears at night while sleeping. I do not believe this to be the case. I asked her when the last time she had an eye exam and she stated it has been a long time. I have encouraged her to make an apt and in the mean time I am doing some research on my own.
Anyone have any ideas???

Thanks!!! Gee peace

seeing orange
Don't know if you are still checking this post, but my 9 year old son says when he went to bed last night he saw orange out of only one eye - remains the same this morning. Also described some peri-orbital pain in same eye. Vision appears to be unaffected. If it continues we will go see Dr. I am an RN and have never heard of this. Have you had any luck with getting information?
Thanks.

seeing orange in right eye
My 9 year old daughter is complaining that she is seeing the color orange out or her right. It just started today around noon. I was wondering if anyone has had any luck figuring out what might cause this.

Seeing Orage after surgery
I am a 63 year old woman and had open heart surgery 3 weeks ago and now I see orange, it is the most annoying thing that has happened to me. I am in too much pain to go to the doctor just now (he is 60 miles away) but as soon as I recover I will go to a retina specialist, then a neurologist and i am sure they will say 'I don't know what is wrong with you"

My 10 year old daughter woke me up last night and told me that when she opened her eyes and looked around everything was bright green, although it isn't orange, it seems to be the same symptoms. If anyone has any information on figuring this out if would be great.

I have opened my eyes and seen both green and orange. A huge area of it - while looking at my bedroom wall, the whole wall was bathed in bright green or orange. This happens just now and again and at first I thought I was still half asleep but now after reading the above I think there's something else going on! Will need to look into it. There doesn't seem to be an answer here...?

About 6 months ago, I was seeing dots, that is with my eyes open. lots of dots. I told my Ophthalmologist, he said he coulnt find anything wrong with my eyes. A few months ago, I would wake up to see bright green. Anything giving off light was bright green, This went on a few weeks. People think Im crazy when I tell them this. That quit and now for a few weeks , when I wake I see bright orange. My walls appear to be orange. This is scary, I scream thinking my house is on fire. I can go back to sleep, and wake to same thing. I go back to Ophthalmologist in a few weeks. Hopefully I get get some answers. Iam in my early 50's.

See my above post. I also wake up and see bright green or bright orange. It glows. What is it? I'm also in my early 50s. I hope there's an answer!

Seeing red
My dad in his 80's told me he is seeing red out of one eye and his vision in that eye is blurred.When he looks in the mirror his eye isn't blood shot. He said this has been going on for a few weeks.My dad did have cataract surgery about 20 years ago. I don't know if that has anything to do with seeing red.

So what is the answer to seeing an orange cloud? My father-in-law is 90 and complained of waking up with seeing just an orange cloud. This remained even after he got up. It's gone now, but what could cause it? He is on medication for hs heart, cholesterol, and glaucoma.

seeing orange
I have been seeing orange or other colors sometimes and have begun to think it is when my blood sugar is out of a normal range. It seems that this happens when I need to eat something with protein or something like that. I just am guessing that from my experience.

I had this problem. It is because oils get into
Our eyes which displaces the light. Using optrex eye wash helps.
