    Myopia corrective surgery

    I have somewhat severe myopia and am looking at getting corrective eye surgery. One eye is -11 and the other, -10.75. I believe I have rather "thick" corneas (575 & 585). Is laser surgery a good option for me? I have read a few articles that seem to recommend implantable lenses for myopia greater than -10. I have seen an MD and he recommended "Zyoptix" with Intralase, however he does not perform implants so I believe his recommendation may be biased. I would like to know,....

    Eye pain/loss of vision when looking too far to the side or down (not so much looking up)

    So I have had this for years, but I was wondering if it is simply how eyes work, or if it is a condition or what, but whenever I look too far to the side and down (like left bottom corner or right bottom corner of my vision) then the furthest eye aches and starts to lose vision the longer I look to that side. For instance, if I am looking to the bottom left corner of my vision (my right eye is looking towards my nose) then my right eye feels strained and loses vision to where if I continue to look....

    My EYES!!!

    Ok so I want to say about a year ago I had got the pink eye for the first time. I got it treated with eye drops and hot towels but my eyes aren't the same they still feel like there's something in them like a rock or something but I know what it is.

    Headaches and eye size

    I have been having headaches not as severe as before but just mostly pressure on half side of my head making one eye bulge. So one of my eyes seems bigger than the other. I have gone to the doctor but with medical I have not been able to be referred with a specialist. I'm really tired of having pressure on one side of my face and my eye looking weird. My doctor does not want to refer me. I wouldn't mind having one eye look different than the other but my problem is I feel pressure on one....
  • 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....

    Cataract Surgery- 18 yr old son having bad side effects

    Our 18 year old son got diagnosed with cataracts when he was 15. He got the multifocal lens in December 2016. It was a terrible lens for him, so he opted to have them removed and the monofocal lens was implanted in both eyes 6 weeks and 2 weeks ago. He is experiencing very bad side effects, including artificial lights coming into the front and peripheral of his eyes and sprinkling in his vision path. This happens all throughout the day and night. He also has lost all his sharpness. His vision is....

    Eye sometimes gets stuck close for a few seconds in a painful way

    My eye sometimes getting stuck somehow when blinking normally, it stops after a few seconds but it is really painful for the time and a bit scary. It doesn't happen often, and I'm not sure if it happens only on one eye, I had no idea what can it be but when trying to explain to someone that said they has this as well, they said it might be the upper eyelid getting stuck in the bottom eyelid. If anyone knows what is going on and if there is a way to prevent it from happening it could really....
