    Castor Oil (Organic) for eyelash growth and health

    Hello everyone! I have tried to get a straightforward answer to this question, but to no avail. Is it okay or not to use organic castor oil on your eyelashes? This would be to get them to grow longer and darker if damaged? First I hear it's wonderful for damaged eyelashes and restores them completely. Then I hear it can damage your eyesight and cause major problems. So which is it? So much conflicting information out there - very confusing! I appreciate any and all comments from people who know....

    Weeping/discharge from 1 eye only

    Hi. Sorry, I'm very new to this forum, so I'm not aware of any kind of unwritten rules. For awhile now I've been having a whitish discharge from my right eye, roughly constantly. About a week now, stopped for awhile, and then came back again. Left eye did it for about a day and then stopped and hasn't come back, but the right eye is still going to town. When it's worse I can't really see out that eye, everything's cloudy. It also crusts close when I sleep which it doesn't....

    Blurry / Dark Vision in Left Exe

    I am 27 years old and since Last 2 days, I am noticing some kind of blurry vision in my left eye. When I blink my eye, I see a flashing dark oval shaped spot in the center which then vanishes away. I feel discomfort in the vision and the blurriness / haziness seems more prominent when I am outside in the sun and then enter a dark room. Reading text on a computer screen is then hazy since today morning. Since I live in Germany, getting appointments to a eye doctor is a pretty tedious job. Should I....
  • Eye sight and anxiety choice

    Dear doctor. I have had very bad anxiety for the past few years. One of the reasons is because I have always complained about blurry vision. This is my prescription which is obviously not that bad: "RX: RE: - 0.50 LE: -0.50/-0.25 x15 Near support lenses (Nulux B lenses) were prescribed. " Wearing glasses stresses me out, wearing contacts is really uncomfortable.. but the bluryness upsets me and I don't know how much/how often to wear the contacts or glasses and I don't want to worsen....
  • Loss of vision throughout the day. Looks like the opposite of tunnel vision.

    Two months ago (March) I had a migraine that lasted for a week. When it finally went away, I started getting really bad neck pains and my eyesight was bad.( This has happened twice before in the last two years but they were so spread apart that I couldn't remember how long it lasted each time.) Just before my migraine started, I went to the doctor's for help with my weight and I was put on Levothyroxine 125mg because i have an underactive thyroid and I hadn't taken my medicine in years....

    Difference between two eyes

    I recently got a new pair of glasses but on the left eye I have a plain lens and for the right eye the diopter is +2.50 spherical and +1 cylindrical with an axis of 95 degrees. Although I could see quite clearly using both eyes at once, I have decided to wear glasses to make sure my vision would not worsen. However, I see much worse now with both eyes when I wear glasses. It seems to me that the image is doubled. I have been wearing them for work on the computer and for reading, but the area around....

    Eye pain or brain pain?

    After 1.5 hrs of exercise including strength training and 50 min on treadmill with av. HR of 133...while driving home, I had a very mild headache and started seeing ribbons of flashing lights at the top of my vision in both eyes. At arrival at home, I looked at the tv and all the faces I looked at were slightly distorted looking. I rested for 15 min and it all went away. Total time of this episode was about 25 min. What could this be??
