The last time I was given a retina exam, the nurse put two different drops in my eyes. During the exam, I suddenly became nauseated, dizzy, lightheaded, and sweaty. This is the second time I had these reactions after getting the two different drops. This doesn't happen when I get only one kind of drop. Is it possible to experience such symptoms from the combination of eye drops, or were these two incidents conicidental to something else?View Thread
Hello, I am 46-years-old and have had glasses for distance vision since I was six-years-old. I now have progressive lenses for reading and middle distance as well. Right about the time I started noticing I might soon be needing reading glasses, I noticed that if I did close up work (like trying to read a paper map) that afterwards when I looked up there would be a tiny blurry spot in the center of my vision. It still occurs today, but did decrease in frequency when I got my first reading glasses. It's always a small little circle of blur in the center of my vision that goes away in about five minutes. I get my eyes examined every year and just had my eyes examined again for this year. I asked my doctor about it again and she said my eyes are very healthy and that this is due to aging. She said that the lens has trouble adjusting back to normal after doing close up work. I didn't ask if I could do anything to prevent this though and if it would get worse with age. I can't seem to find anything about this on the Internet except a couple of posts without any answers. One post said your vision could stay like that though. I hope that's not the case. Is there anything I can try? I was trying to learn to crochet and I holding something that close triggers it. If there's anything I can do now to prevent it from getting worse I'd like to address it now. Thank you. View Thread
I have tried topical drops, steroid drops, Autologous Serum Eye Drops, Lyrical, Pain killers, Anti Inflammatory pills none have even come close to helping the least. I've seen the best Lasik surgeons in the Chicago land area and they are all stumped. They don't think it's dry eye but deep nerve damage. I have extreme chronic pain and light sensitivity. My eye burns, and have a constant a migraine behind my eye that never goes away even when I sleep! Considering plugs or Scleral Lenses. Treatments!?View Thread
After burning my eye with pepper juice I had a cornea transplant. As a result I had to have Silicon oil put in my eye 6 years ago Now I'm told the oil needs to be replaced. Is this normal procedure as it will cost $4,000.00 to have it done. Thanks for any inputView Thread
It's right next to the pink skin part in the corner of your inner eye. There's red dot and I can't tell if it's a bump or if it's red dot in general but that part has been sore for few days and I just noticed today when staring at the mirror. Cant tell if it's because I shared towel and yesterday I got mixed up eyeglasss with somebody since it looked the same as his. Should I be ok? I trying eye wash. Shouldn't be std or anything like that? When I put contacts that part became more sore so I removed the Lense. I'm very worried if it's a type of std. It shouldn't be a bump inside eye? I also went to hair salon and the lady doesn't really do good job but I'm afraid if that might be the hair dye color. I don't want my hair color to dye my eye. The red spot is sore I can feel it. It stinged a lot when u was washing my eye after I got back from hair salon when I was washing my face. Will I be ok? What should I do?View Thread
