    Brightness above the line I'm reading

    Just curious if anyone knows what causes this. Whenever I'm reading anything (a book, something on the tv, a sign) it's like there's a bright line above where I'm reading. I'm not quite sure if that is a good description because I've googled and found nothing. It's annoying and distracting but not a big enough deal that I've worried about going to the doctor. Should I be concerned?

    Glaucoma and blood pressure medication

    I understand there is little relationship between blood pressure and eye pressure (a glaucoma risk factor). However, too low a blood pressure reduces the flow of nutients to the eye, which in turn may raise the risk for glaucoma. I am taking blood pressure medication (5mg Amlodipine daily) for pre-hypertension. If I am diagnosed with glaucoma, is it more helpful (for protecting vision) to reduce my blood pressure medication if I am only prehypertensive?

    Hello, My pupil is enlarged after a punch 12 days ago. Is there a home remedy to correct this? I read cold tea bags or cold cucumber slices help injured eyes. Is there a remedy for an enlarged pupil? Thank you for your assistance.
  • Isolated Eyelashes Growing Too Long

    I have a few eyelashes on both upper eyelids which keep growing and very quickly, never falling out on their own. I have to trim them once a week or they become very irritated as they often wrap around and rub against my other lashes. I have had this condition since I was a child. What could it be?

    Vision loss

    I was diagnosed brain tumour near my pituitary gland around 8 years ago. Gradually my optic nerve was a little suppressed by the tumour due to which my overall visual field has lessened and my right eye vision has blurred. I think this might be permanent. Yet, I heard of the device called 'Esight Eyewear'. I don't know if it would actually work. If anyone had previously or is currently using it, please guide me if it actually works.

    Eye problems

    Hi! I contracted pink eye in the end of April and the first eye drops I was prescribed I had a reaction to. It’s been nearly 2 months and I have a red eye with slight tenderness still. It looks worse some days more than others and I just don’t understand why it won’t go away. My vision has also weakened in my eye that I had the pink eye.

    Dry Eye

    All of a sudden, my eyes dry out about 9:00 every night (I go to bed at 11:00). They will still be dry when I get up during the night, but they are okay in the morning and the rest of the day. I'll try some eyedrops (recommendations?). I'm 68 and my eyes are healthy. Is this just an aging issue?

    Glaucoma

    I've had about 7 or 8 surgeries both for glaucoma and corneal dystrophy. I have bi-lateral trabulectomy and recently suffered an accident while mowing my lawn. A gust of wind sent debris into the left eye, with abrasion of the cornea, iris and totally destroying the bleb. Had reconstruction surgery for the bleb and the abrasion healed with antibiotics. I had a "bridge" over the bleb site with a graft. All is well, vision is restored. FYI I now wear swim goggles when cutting grass.
