    Intermittent Sharp eye pain

    I continue to experience an intermittent, sharp/stabbing eye pain in my eye/s. Exclusively at night prior to going to sleep. The pain is quite uncomfortable albeit it only lasts for a few seconds. Is this a symptom of dry eye? Or something more sinister?

    eye health

    I would like to have my lazy eye corrected. Is there such an operation for this and if so how much is it? How long does it take the eye to heal? Thank you for any thing you can tell me about this! I am very self concious about it.

    Eye Health

    I am a 54 year old and i stopped taking my eye drops for five months. I went in with my right eye pressure of 55 and left eye of 25. I was prescribed prednisone and dorzolamide-timolol and both eyes went down to 16. I wasn't taking it religiously so during my last check up, my eyes were 22 and 24. then i was prescribed two more medications ( diclofenac and brimonidine) making it a total of four. I want to know if it is necessary for all these four medications. I don't have any symptoms.
  • Uneven eyes & unilateral tension

    Over the last five or six years one side of my body has become quite tense, to the point where I wake up with my face already scrunched as though I'm squinting. Meanwhile, my eyes are becoming increasingly uneven; the eye on the non-tense side seems to bulge and it often aches. My eyes have always been a tiny bit asymmetrical & I put the ache down to needing a new contact prescription, but the asymmetry is becoming so pronounced that it's clear something's up. I'm concerned because....

    Adapting to progressive lenses

    Recently I've purchased some progressive lenses online in some very nice frames. I got them from go-optic ( http://www.go-optic.com ) and they're right according to the doctor. I was told I just needed to get used to them. How long did it take you to adapt?

    Problems with cataract surgery

    I searched on cataracts and found a couple of very long threads, but I'm not up for reading them right now--my eye hurts too much. So I hope no one minds if I start a new thread? I may be having a bad experience, even though everyone told me it wasn't painful or a big deal. I had cataracts in both eyes--small ones, the doctor said. So I had the left one done a few weeks ago. They put me under. And it hurt! The next day when I went in, he said one of the stitches came out, and one was loose....

    Blurry vision in one eye only

    I have blurry vision in one eye only. To the point where I cannot read anything what so ever. My doctor gave me a +5 lens in one eye and it is a bit clearer but I can still not read clearly, even if a book is right in front of me. Does anybody know what this is? I have the strongest lens possible and yet still have limited vision in my left eye, and reall can only see on my left side if I cover my right eye.

    Mass inside corner or eye

    What is this growing in the corner of eye ? I've had it for about a week now. It's gotten a little bigger since it first started growing. It's causing me no pain or discomfort but it is attached to my eye ball so I'm concerned it might be Infected. Through the day I get quite a bit of dischargeI can't see my eye doctor until next week.
