Just got new glasses feel like I'm see cross eyed but I'm not actually cross eyed. Hard to focus on computer work. Never took this long to adjust befo?
Return to eye doc...: You need to return to your eye doctor with your new glasses so your eye doctor can make sure you received the right prescription. Your eye doctor can check your new glasses and make sure the prescription is right. If your glasses are the right prescription, then return to the place they were made and have them adjusted again. Sometimes all it takes is a minor adjustment and you'll see fine again!!
Yes: There are both worrisome and transient problems that can give rise to this problem. To rule out the bad issues, brain imaging is usually required after your history and exam is reviewed by your doc. I've seen this with a transient viral infection involving the nerves controlling the eye muscles. It can also represent a stroke or tumor.See 1 more doctor answer
See an eye doctor: This should not be happening and could be a sign of something sinister. See an ophthalmologist to have it sorted out.
I wasn't a cross-eyed before. But as I grew older it showed up. Us it the cause of wearing spectacles?
Cross eye: Not from glasses but other causes more likely so visit your eye doctor soon
Usually temporary: New babies often have disconjugate gaze (the eyes don't look in the same direction), especially if they are not trying to look at anything. The gaze should straighten out over the first 3 months, but parents should let the doctor know at the 2-week, 1-month, & 2-month check-ups about the gaze. Babies with disconjugate gaze after 3 months, or who have additional symptoms, should see an eye doctor.See 2 more doctor answers
Yes: It is normal for young infants, under 4 months of age, to periodically look cross-eyed. Older children should be promptly evaluated to rule out more serious eye conditions which could include vision problems. Catarracts, or even tumors. Sometimes the baby's nasal bridge gives the false appearance of cross-eye, this is known as pseudostrabismus.See 5 more doctor answers
Glasses, sometimes: You can break down crossed eyes into 2 basic types. One type can be fixed with glasses and one type requires surgery. If your child has the type that can only be corrected with surgery, don't be afraid of this procedure. However, I always believe a second opinion is in order prior to making this decision. That opinion should be with a pediatric ophthalmologist, frequently found in larger cities.See 1 more doctor answer
