Can anyone give me a lead on this? They don't itch but are sensitive to touch. The first one I noticed is starting to go away it seems then I noticed two more appear. I have nothing like this anywhere else on my body. View Thread
Hello! It literally feels like I have poison ivy in my eye!! That itchy! I have been a contact lens wearer for many years and admit to sleeping in my lenses a lot. I have gotten much better at taking them out, soaking them to disinfect and replacing them as I should. However, this past 2 months I wore a pair for 2 months( though I did disinfect them and wore glasses here and there) . So I now got my new lenses and yesterday I put them in, then I disinfected them overnight and this morning put them in. All day my eye has been watering, blurring, and itching like crazy! I know it is irritation under my eye lids. I inspected them, see nothing weird just a lot of redness.
I saw my optometrist a few weeks ago for an exam and he noticed this eye had inflammation. He told me it will just go away on its own. I was prescribed Pataday drops for the itching. Doesn't help at all! I have some eye drops antiobiotics( tobramycin) from a previous issue. Maybe I should use those?

My son is 24 yrs old. He has been suffering from painful eyes for quite some time, in fact since he finished working on his art project. Since then he has been complaining that red colour hurts his eyes. Afterwards he could not stand bright light, then looking at a screen became painful, looking higher or level to his eyes became painful too, looking at a crowd, looking at things in motion such as a car moving,in short it hurts when he uses his eyes. The eye doctors he went to visit are baffled by his symptoms. I am very worried. Can someone please help me to understand my son's eye problems?View Thread
I have a problem in my right eye from about 5 years ago. When I look to a single dot I see it as a complete hollow circle up to 5 cm diameter. When the object is further the circle has bigger diameter but no more than 5 cm.
As a result of seeing everything repeated in circular shape I then can't see with this eye unless I see through a small hole then I can see clearly as only one ray pass to the eye.
I have no pressure, migraine or diabetic.
I visited two doctors and they checked the eye but the didn't find anything unusual.
Anybody see something like that before? What the medical name of this symptom?

Had cataract surgery/lens implants 2003. Had difficulty getting glasses after healing. Everything looked out of level when looking down on a desktop or table. Dispensing optician questioned the axis correction for one lens for the new glasses, looked unusual. Prescription was changed and vision improved. 2014 begun to have continuous headaches behind eyes. After several eye exams by two ophthalmologists, one of which being the same who did the original surgery, with no finding of any problem, my GP ordered MRI of head. Found suspicious enlarged blood vessels. Ordered angiogram looking for possible aneurisms . No cause for the headache or vision problems was found. Is it possible that one lens was rotated? Is there any correction available?View Thread

I currently wear Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism, and have been doing so for a few years. I have been wearing contacts for about 10 years now.
For the past year, my left contact lens begun to have this strange horizontal haze. My right contact did experience the same problem, but it has since subsided. The haze occurs after 3-6 days of wearing the contact lens. I have tried to make sure my hands were washed, rubbing the contact w/ cleaning solution before and/or after the problem occurs, different cases, different solutions, nothing works! Every two weeks when I open a new contact up from my box and wear it for 3-6 days, the same thing happens. I think there was one time a couple months ago where my contact didn't haze up.
I have a feeling it has something to do with the stock that I am using. I haven't had any problems with this brand of contact until this set of boxes that I bought for the year. What gives?
I attached a picture to show what it looks likeView Thread
Hi, I got my eyes checked today and they gave me some drops for pupil dilation. All was good except that my left eye was seeing better than my right one. After the exam I was told I won't be able to read for a few hours but in fact I was able to with my left eye, with the right one all was a bit blurry. When I got home and look myself in the mirror I saw that my left eye pupil was like normal, but the right one was fully dilated (almost no part of the iris can be seen). A bit freaky to be honest so I took some pictures.
Do I need to worry and contact my GP or is this normal?View Thread
Hello, I have been experiencing quite a bit of health problems over the last 2.5 months, most of which started from a cold/sinus infection I had back in April, plus I sprained my ankle pretty badly so I hadn't run (I used to run 18 miles/week) or exercised since then. I had 2 rounds of antibiotics and steroid treatments but I still have headaches everyday. ENT used the scope camera on my nasal cavities and she said it was clear. Doing a CT scan next week.
Now though, my headaches hurt all over,like someone sitting on my head and at the same time putting a band around my head and squeezing it all around. In the middle of all this, I experienced an extreme headache, more painful that the sinus ones one evening after taking a hot shower where afterwards, my vision was very much affected. My eyes could not focus for more than 1 second. Whenever I would try to focus, it seemed like my eyes would cross and I couldn't see anything in focus. Plus, all my peripheral vision seemed to have turned hazy. This lasted for about 30 minutes. I got a last minute appointment to see my opthalmologist the next day and it turned out, I had two little holes in my left retina. He repaired it with laser (he said he "super glued the holes back"). I'm scheduled for a followup in 2 weeks.
However, last night, after coming back from the gym of only walking for 1.5 miles on the treadmill and taking a hot shower, I had more headaches, felt really nauseas, and once again my vision was hazy and lost most of my peripheral vision. This time, it lasted a few hours before I fell asleep. My vision seems okay today but I'm worried whether it's my headaches that's causing the vision problems or the other way around.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.View Thread
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.
