    Hyphema question

    My son suffered a hyphema to his eye about 4 years ago. There are still issues with it, but nothing that requires medical attention. He was in a class about impaired driving, and during a demonstration by a police officer about roadside DUI tests, his injured eye "failed" the horizontal gaze nystagmus, (sp?), test. Is this common and should there be any additional follow up to his eye Dr? Having a hard time getting any Dr to answer this, and concerned this may lead to issues in the future....

  • Home Remedies for Pink Eye

    Pink eye, also known as conjunctivitis, is inflammation of the clear membrane that lines your eyelid and eyeball. It’s pretty common and usually caused by allergies or an infection from a virus or bacteria. Usually pink eye is irritating but it does not affect your vision.

    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.

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....
