    Eye trouble - goes away and then returns

    Hello, this past May, I was diagnosed with a corneal ulcer. I was treated with an antibiotic drop and steroid drop. Went back for an exam and all we good. A month later, my eyelid became inflamed and my eye red so I went back and was prescribed a steroid. It helped and all was well until about 3 months later- same symptoms.

    Alternating Estropia? Causes and Treatments?

    I have had serious vision issues since the day I was born. I have had glasses ever since I was able to communicate with an eye doctor. I have had many issues such as basic near-sightedness, astigmatisms, nystagmus, a lazy eye. All of it. When I was about 5 years old, I had to occasionally wear an eye-patch to correct a lazy eye condition, so having crossed eyes are not foreign to me. For most of my life, this issue has not come up until two years ago (sophomore/junior year of high school). One of....

    Glaucomo and receding eyelid in one eye

    In Oct 2017, after visiting my opthamolgist because of an unusual feeling in my left eye, I was diagnosed with dry eye and prescribed Restasis. Within 2 days of Restaisis my left eye opened very wide. My opthamologist erroneously suggested a neurological problem. I went to Emory University Hospital Opthamology for a second opinion and learned I have glaucoma in my left eye only, but they could not explain the receding eyelid, since my blood thyroid level is normal. Over the past 5 months, at Emory....

    Stye/Chalazion Infections?

    Hi, I was wondering if it was possible to get a stye from Fungus? I have atheletes foot and a chalazion. The chalazion has under-gone surgery, but I am worried that it may still be infected as it has been 7 weeks since I got the surgery. The chalazion has gone down quite a lot and still remains. The doctor has said it was a bacterial infection but i'm worried if it could be infected by fungus?
