    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.

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....

    PLEASE HELP! I NEED TRUTH!

    It’s a long story. You got time? I pray you do. August 2017, I tripped while hiking with my dogs Nibbler and Buddy at a local off leash county park. I was knocked out. Came to covered in blood and dirt. Pups panting hard. No one around to help. I made it home and laid down. I know, I know don’t lecture me. My husband came home six hours later and found me unresponsive. Emergency room fixes everything, right? Not so much. The “doctor” refused me an MRI or a CAT scan. He did not check my eyes. He sent....
