Painful eye = needs medical attention. No other suggestion is a safe one.
"Foreign body sensation" may be a retained foreign body or it can be a corneal abrasion caused by the foreign body or the rubbing. In either case you need to see a doctor to make the diagnosis and probably prescribe preventative antibiotics to make sure it heals quickly and without infection.View Thread
It is extremely unlikely that the postoperative eyedrops are the cause of your increase blood sugar and hemoglobin A1C. It is much more likely that the changes in your physical routines after surgery are responsible for the loss of diabetes control.View Thread
Distortion of shape has multiple possible causes. These include serious issues such as retinal problems as well as less serious such as astigmatism or starting the use of glasses to correct astigmatism.
No diagnosis can be made without an ophthalmologist examination.View Thread
There are multiple possibilities for your visual issue. If the shapes and patterns occur in episodes and last for a few minutes, they could be migraine related. This could be a retinal migraine or if followed by a headache, the visual aura preceding a migraine headache.
Of course, no diagnosis can be made without an examination and gathering more history specific to your situation. So, an ophthalmologist visit is a good idea.View Thread
You took your child to a pediatric ophthalmologist and dilation is a requirement for the exam. The doctor can't look at the inside of the eye (retina) or get an accurate refraction (check for glasses) without dilation.
There is no problem. Dilation is part of the standard of care. It would be a problem if the doctor did not dilate the pupils.View Thread
You will need to have more discussion with the ophthalmologist taking care of this person. An irreversibly swollen corneal transplant, either from donor rejection or from simply "wearing out" over time, can be fairly easily replaced with another transplant. Indeed, a partial transplant can usually be used in such a situation to address the failed cornea.
On the other hand, it may be the case that there are other eye problems in addition to the failed corneal transplant which prevent vision improvement; this might be a reason that the transplant is not being fixed.
Again, a direct question to the eye doctor is needed. Failed corneal transplants are routinely replaced.View Thread
As long as you have had a complete ophthalmologist exam to make sure you don't have a need for prescription glasses, dry eye or any other specifically treatable cause of excessive computer viewing fatigue, its OK to try optical aids such as computer glasses or tinted computer screen covers. No a lot of science or evidence behind these glasses or covers but they may be subjectively helpful. These devices will not harm your eyes.View Thread
Could your lightheadedness and jumbled vision be what someone else might describe as blurred vision and eye strain following extended visual effort especially at close distances? If yes, your starting point would be a visit to your eye doctor to determine whether you might benefit from a pair of glasses. For anyone approaching or passing the age of 40, this is a natural development and reading glasses will pretty much fix the issue.
Lightheadedness and jumbled vision, particularly if dramatic and brand new, bring up more possibilities in the neurological realm. This is far less likely but if this description better fits your symptoms, you might want to start with your primary care doctor probably followed by the eye doctor.View Thread
You are not likely to solve your watery eye issue on an internet forum. An eye doctor visit is in your future.
In general, excessive tearing is caused by either overproduction of tears or insufficient drainage. Tears may be overproduced by irritation conditions which do include many issues including allergy or even dry eye - yes, reflex (overflow) tearing can be a response to dry eyes.
The tears normally drain through a small hole (punctum) on each lower eyelid and the exit passage is routed through the lacrimal sac and to your nose and the back of your throat. This is sort of a gutter and downspout arrangement which can be blocked at multiple points. The lids can be overly loose with spillage over the "gutters" The punctum can be too small or blocked or the downspout itself can be blocked.
So, your eye doctor can help you diagnose and treat the cause of your watery eyes but this does take a full examination.View Thread
