    Hello,
    I'm going to the eye doctor today and need some help with related French vocabulary.

    I would like to say that I wake up with a film over one eye and cloudy vision.

    Here's what I've come up with, but I fear it's clumsy and wrong.

    My last eye checkup was 18 months ago. Now, when I wake up, I find the right eye covered with a film (cloudy). From time to time recently I also feel a stabbing pain in the right eye.

    J’ai fait mon dernier bilan de santé des yeux il y a 18 mois. Maintenant, quand je me lève, l’œil droit est recouvré d’une couche légère. Et de temps en temps, dans les derniers jours, je sens une pointe dans l’œil droit.

    Any suggestions would be most appreciated!

    J'ai fait mon dernier bilan occulaire il y a 18 mois. Maintenant quand je me réveille, j'ai l'oeil droit recouvert d'un film trouble. Et ces derniers temps je ressentais parfois une douleur (une douleur vive?) dans l'oeil droit.

    Thank you!

    An extra question, if I say I feel a "douleur" and he asks me what kind, how would I indicate that it's not a continuous dull pain, but a sharp one -- like a knife stab? "Comme un couteau" perhaps?

    Again many thanks for your help.
