    Isopto Atropine 1%

    Hello, I was having allergies among a couple other issues concurrently (food poisoning/diarrhea/etc.) and a friend gave me isopto atropine on accident. It's been 36 hours and my pupils are still fully dilated with blurred vision and sensitivity to bright lights. I have light eyes (grey). I've been searching online to find out when my blurred vision or sensitivity to light should start decreasing. I understand from the research that the dilation can last between 7 to 14 days. Is there any....

    Weird Flashing! Please Help

    I am experiencing bright flashing spots in my eyes (more prominent in my right eye) when I run or jump (or even cough really hard). This is not after I exercise but during the actual act itself. I just went to a retina specialist who performed a through exam and said my retinas look healthy. I asked him if I had any eye diseases and he said no. He also took a picture (OCT) of my retinas and they appeared normal. I am so scared that I am going blind and that this is the beginning stages of retina....

    Vision is ok but feels very weird

    Although I can clearly see even very distant objects, left eye feels very strange, like it's slightly warm and dry and as if something is wrong on the periphery but I can't see it, I often feel urge to squint. Sometimes it is very blurry for a short periods of time though. I have it for a couple of weeks now, tried not to think about it but it doesn't go. Also it started after some stressful events, could it be just anxiety?

    Watering eyes makes eyes sting

    So I noticed a month or so back that when my eyes watered they'd sting and closing my eyes would alleviate the feeling. Doesn't happen all the time, usually only when I'm yawning which is odd. Any idea what this could be? I'm not concerned just curious. Thanks in advance.

    Should I be worried about crossed eyes?

    Last night, I woke up at 2 am and my eyes were crossed. They took about a minute to fix themselves, but it freaked me out. I was also very very nauseous. All day I've been feeling nauseous, tired, and very weak.

    Should I be seeking medical attention?

    I’m currently abroad in a country where (for various reasons) it would be difficult for me to seek medical attention. I recently had a fall that caused a slight cut to the outer side of my supraorbital ridge resulting in almost immediate swelling and bruising. Now 2 days on and I have a significant subcutaneous hematoma that is pooling around the affected eye as well as what appears to be a subconjunctival hemorrhage in the same eye. I have no pain (other than localized to the cut) and am not experiencing....

After about 10 mins it passed but just now it returned and faded but still i have a little blur in that eye. Its friday night so cant visit my GP before Monday.. or is this something i should address sooner and take myself to hospital?
