Eye test report spherical +.75 cylindrical -.5 axis 180 axis. Symptoms headache work on computer daily basis for 4 hours?
-3.0 in both eyes. Using contacts. Can read fine without glasses. Considering whether lasik or lasek, or other surgical correction?
Epi-LASIK: I have done over 10000 lasik cases and over 1000 prk cases. A documented, peer-reviewed study was published in 2011 showing that the lasik flap never fully heals. The consequence of this is if any lasik patient ever gets hit in the eye just right (just wrong) and the flap comes loose, there is a very brief window to get it repositioned or you'll need a corneal transplant. Insist on epi-lasik! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

It could also be a stoke that can cause this, but less likely and far more dangerous. Again to sort this out, please have an exam. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
44 Female. Causes of intermittent stabbing eyeball pain without any change in vision . Eyes not red, etc. Sometimes also burn. Dry eyes?
Sounds like Dry eyes: Dry eyes are an often the culprit of many symptoms in the eye which can include burning, stinging, tearing, foreign body sensation, tiredness, heaviness, blurred vision and eye pain. You can have some or all of the symptoms or even none of the symptoms and have dry eye.

Inflammation: Conjunctivitis is inflammation of the conjunctiva (covering on the white part of the eye). Keratitis is inflammation of the cornea (clear layer in front of the iris). Both can be caused by viruses and both can be present at the same time. The light sensitivity and blurred vision could be caused by keratitis. Anytime you have blurred vision you should see your eye doctor immediately. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Needs attention: The principal issue is the big difference between the sphere in your child's refraction (+5.00 right eye and +0.75 for the left). This is a set up for the brain to ignore the right eye which has such a high power. You should see a pediatric ophthalmologist with an M.D. And stop going to an optometrist to make sure that your child's vision is preserved in both eyes. The astigm. Is minor. ...Read more
