    Glaucoma

    I was diagnosed early Glaucoma and early dry AMD at the end of 2015. Since then I Have been using various eye drops for glaucoma. Some eye drops did not suit me at all and caused low BP and decrease in heart rate. Hence left them. Now I am using Travatan once a day in the evening and Azopt twice a day for the last 8 months. My IOP remains 18-19 Rt eye and 15-16 lt eye. My eye sight remains reasonable and I am still using the same glasses as prescribed 3 years back. Can I have the views of those who....

    Headache at night

    My eyesight is weak at minus 2 for both eyes. I wear soft contact lenses during the day. At night when I take them out to sleep, my head starts hurting as soon as I close my eyes. If I keep wearing them when I go to sleep there is no headache. The headache is persistent when I go to bed without the lenses. Help please.

    Is this a normal vision problem for older people?

    I am an older guy with what the eye dr tells me is standard eye aging and visual degeneration. However, I have yet to find out why or what is causing this: When I am reading or working on something up close, I am unable to see the objects very well (without my glasses.) If I tip my head forward and read or view the object in a manner that is, say like I was reading over the top of the glasses, IF I had them on, I can see it 3-10x better. It's very annoying because the book or object is very blurry....

    Nerves about my eye.

    On my right eye I noticed a bubble that looked like air bubble on the eyeball when I was doing my makeup. As soon as I saw it I looked it to see if it harmless but I found out that it could damage my vision if I don't take care of it. It's been two days now and it hasn't gone down. I been putting eyedrops on it. What should I do?
  • Pain when moving eye too far

    Three days ago, my eyes started hurting whenever I moved them too far in any direction. My eyes only hurt when I turn them too much. I thought it was optic neuritis, but my vision is completely fine--it isn't blurred, dimmed, or colorblind. While the pain is in both eyes, it is primarily in one. I am sixteen years old. In addition to the problem with my eyes, I also got something like a cold three days ago, including a runny nose, sore throat, and headache. I thought that my eyes hurting was....

    IOL for astigmatism

    Do IOL for astigmatism fix the problem for good or does it continue to change like nearsightedness does? Can astigmatism cause eyesight issues eventually that are uncorrectable? I will be having cataract surgery and am not sure that paying for specialty lenses is worth it. I have little or no interest in going to lengths to avoid wearing glasses after surgery.

    Are lazic eye procedures permanent? Not covered by eye insurance, so would not want to have to repeat it.

    Don't know what it is and it won't go away!

    I have very dry, red, flaky skin around my left eye and the eyelid is slightly swollen. It's been going for about 4 months now. It calms almost to the point of going away, and then it flares up again. It starts as a red spot under the skin. It itches and burns a little. Then, it swells up a bit and gets really red. It dries, the redness goes away and it flakes off. But the swelling never eases and then the process will repeat itself all over again. It started as a small itchy spot on my lower....

    excessive tearing

    10 yrs. ago I had surgery for a detached retina. The surgery was successful and follow ups are no longer necessary. The problem for the past several years has been the tearing out of that eye. At least a dozen times over the past year, there has been blood mixed in with the tears. Not red in the eye, but actual blood. And it has only happened at night. My optho. dr. did not find any problem with my eye. So, should my next step be to see a dr. who deals with tear ducts?

    Vision loss and lousy practice from NJ optometrist

    Just a heads up to any looking or considering an eye doc in the Summit, NJ area- optometrist on Springfield Ave., DJS, screwed me up royally- prescribed and dispensed me badly fitting hard lenses (CRT lenses from Paragon Vision Sciences) and neglected appropriate follow up and various other care issues resulting in severe corneal infection, scarring and loss of vision in my eye. Awaiting surgery due to extreme medical negligence. Doc seems to have forgotten "do no harm" in place of how....
