I had retinal bleeding in my left eye 22 years ago. As a result, I have a
not too small blind spot in the peripheral vision in the eye. Soon after the
bleeding, if I remember correctly, I could see a sort of bluish gray spot
blocking my peripheral vision, but some time later the bleeding spot
stablized and it was not so visible (In other words, the blind spot was
always there but the spot itself was not so visible. Does this make sense to
you?).

Recently, the spot started to be visible again, especially against bright
background. Also, if I close my eyes and open again in a bright environment,
the spot is more visible. The spot is where it has been and I don't think
it's getting bigger at all. Why is it visible again after all those 22
years? What's happening? I've become ultra sensitive to my vision since my
eye doc told me that I had cataract & VD. FYI, a retina specialist did OCT &
FA on me 3 weeks ago and the result was fine.

Viewed with one eye, that is?

So did you take a visual field test and did the spot show up there?
