    Sore eyes

    My eyes are always sore, eyelids red and inflamed and twitch randomly, they are sensitive to light. I believe this also contributes to feeling constantly fatigued. I have havfever and also experience an itchy nose and redness on and around my nose. I use a computer for up to 8 hours a day which probably doesn't help. Treatments I have tried include eyedrops, hot/cold compress, looking away from my pc periodically. Is there anything I should try?

    Conflicting astigmatism from both eyes?

    My mom was given the attached prescription. The glasses store said that the astigmatism from both of here eyes are perpendicular and it is impossible to make a pair of glasses that accommodate both eyes. Is that true? If so, can you explain why? Are there any way to get around it? Right now, her glasses only allow one of her eyes to see clearly. Thank you!

  • I plucked my eye

    I was trying to get my contacts out after my first use, but it was really difficult and stinging my eyes, so I stupidly tried to use tweezers to get it out since my nails are too short to help... I plucked the white of my eye, and a bit of it came up, like if you were to pluck your skin. it wasn't the contact that came up though. I'm not in pain or anything and my vision has not changed, I'm just worried that plucking the white bit could cause an infection or another injury? I won't....

    Swollen eyelid

    So a couple days ago I woke up with eyelid pain. Slight swelling in the eyelid. My eye feels drier than usual. The eyelid still hurts if I blink or touch it. I haven't worn eye makeup at all for a long time. So I'd like to know what is up with my eyelid, if I should see a doctor or wait it out, if I should try eyedrops or something? Thank you

    Visual acuity seems to switch between eyes

    I'm 72 years old. I noticed a decline in visual acuity. Visited the Ophthalmologist. Appeared the decline was in the L eye due to cataracts. I have scheduled surgery for that L eye. Now, I notice that if I cover first the L then the R eye, I see better out of the Left! I'm sure that in the exam, the L eye was the weaker eye. I have no idea what's going on. Any insights?

    Contacts and glasses combined gives same vision as contacts alone

    This is a weird one. I sometimes forget to remove my contacts before putting my glasses on... This is because, after a few seconds of blurriness, my eyes "adjust" and I can see just fine. Its not that my prescription is too low, and doubling up makes it better. My vision is literally the same no matter if I wear just contacts, just glasses, or both at the same time. Does anyone have thoughts as to what is going on?
