Eye and Vision Care
I happened to close my right eye to rub it and realized that everything appeared green through the left eye. Color as seen through the right eye appeared to be normal
The first thing you should evaluate is whether this is still present. If there is still a difference with the color perception of each eye I would recommend an eye exam.Thank you for visiting NetWellness.
Moderately long standing monocular color changes could possibly indicate an infectious or inflammatory condition to the optic nerve. This would also probably have an associated decrease in visual acuity.
If the color perception change was very brief, it was probably just a visual perception anomaly, which can briefly occur and is usually meaningless.
If it is long-standing then I would have it evaluated by an eye doctor.
