So I've had this problem my whole life. I recently found out that my mom also has this same problem, and didn't know about it until she was about 30 years old. Whenever I try to look into a hole (such as a microscope, telescope, into a rifle) I cannot see anything. Even if the microscope or whatever has two holes for your eyes, I still cannot see. The only way I can see through the hole is by closing one of my eyes. I use microscopes a lot so this is a huge problem for me!! (And I look like an idiot closing one eye when the microscope has two eyeholes)
My mom read a book where a guy has this problem so he couldn't look through the scope of his gun in war or something and that's how she found out what it was called. She looked into it a little and found some info (it's genetic and you can get corrective lenses) but forgot what it was called. I would really like to know some info because I don't have access to a doctor right now and would really like to try to get this problem fixed because it's a huge hassle.
My son is 19 and wants to join the military. He was born with dry eyes and has never, ever shed a tear (even as a baby). Eye doctors here have examined him over the years since he has been little, and there are no blocked tear ducts or any other things that could be the cause. He has to have eye drops throughout the day every day, or he gets dry, scratchy eyes. He is also in a whole lot of discomfort if he has lack of sleep even with extra eye drops. We don't know anything that could help him besides the unlimited supply of Refresh Tears. I also wonder if the military would accept that and how the eyes could deal with the gas chamber requirement. I can't see them letting recruits sleep much and letting one stop to put in eye drops throughout the day.View Thread
Hello, I am contacting the web for help because I am at a breaking point. For the past 2 years I haven't been able to look at any screens, they give me an immediate sharp pain in the center of eye. Pain that leads to headaches after a while and mini black outs if I were to really strain them. (They only last a short few seconds) The black outs have stopped because like I said I've started to take of myself and not watch t.v or anything but in a world where everything is tech now and I'm a studying college student it's not easy. I have 20/20 and have gone to multiple eye doctors that can only detect ever so slight astigmatism. I recently went to Bascom Palmers eye institute and wasted a huge sum of money on multiple exams just for the doctor to give me a confused look and send me home with migraine pills that don't work. The screens hurt more while in a dark room. I don't have dry eyes and I have done a head MRI that also hasn't turned up any results. I've done the warm compressions, I've gone days without screens hoping to see improvements but there are none, the pain is there and I am dying to just watch a movie again with my family.View Thread

Last night my wife and I were laying on the couch. When we both got up, the back of her head hit me eye. Kind of like when someone hits someone hits their heads together. It wasn't painful, just the sensation for a couple minutes of someone hitting your eye. It didn't get red and my vision is fine.
I have an IOL in that eye from a cataract surgery two years ago. I had a full eye exam a few weeks ago and everything is normal. However, I have become a bit of a hypo and have gone to the eye doctor numerous times for things that were nothing. Of course, I Googled getting hit in the eye and I saw all kinds of things like getting high eye pressure and the like.
Like I stated, my vision feels fine and I have no pain. Am I worrying for nothing? Is the eye tougher than I am thinking? ThanksView Thread
