Cross Eye Punched Face
Strabismus: You would typically see a pediatric ophthalmologist for strabismus surgery. This is where the muscles that move the eyes are either weakened or strengthened so that the eyes are aligned.
My 5 month old has cross eye and her dr wants her to be checked by an eye dr. And waiting for appt. I'm freaking. What to expect! How is ittreated?
What to do if I got a cross eye a while ago, I think because I was rubbing my eye too much, and I wanted to know if glasses or contacts can fix this problem?
Not from rubbing: There are many causes of misaligned eyes, but rubbing them is not one of them. See an ophthalmologist for evaluation of this problem.
No: Unless you have underlying accomodative esotropia, computer use will not cause your eyes to cross. If you have accomodative esotropia whenever you focus on close objects your eyes tend to converge too much. Wearing the proper glasses will prevent your eyes from crossing. Computer use doesn't cause your eyes to cross.See 1 more doctor answer
Crossed-eyes: The solution may be glasses, patching, eye drops, surgery, or a combination of the above. You should see a pediatric ophthalmologist for a work-up to identify the cause and outline a treatment plan. Catching the problem at a younger age like this is helpful in most cases. Good luck!See 1 more doctor answer
I got soap in my eye and lately my eye has been hurting in the back and feeling funny like a cross eye feeling and I saw a flash of light one time?
Type of soap?: If you got soap in your eye, the 1st thing to do is copiously rinse your eye with tap water, eye rinse, or normal saline right away. Do this this for several minutes. I assume you are talking about bathing soap. Stronger soaps such as wash detergents, dishwasher soaps, industrial soaps are far more concentrated & may significantly irritate your eye. After significantly rinsing your eye, see an MD.
No: Objective medical evaluation should be obtained if the eyes appear crossed in the mirror.See 1 more doctor answer

Sensorimotor exam: The sensorimotor exam checks the extra ocular movements and measures deviation of the eyes with special lenses called prisms. Checks depth perception or tridimentional vision (titmus or randot test).
See an: Ophthalmologist. May need eye patching to correct problem
Depends on the type.: There are many causes for strabismus and management is different for children and for adults. Treatments include observation, patching, glasses, medication, and surgery, depending on the cause, severity, and type of strabismus. Eye patching in children should only be done under the guidance of your eye doctor, as patching can cause amblyopia (lazy eye).See 1 more doctor answer

I got punched in the face and my eye swelled up bad that I can't see. What can I do to unswell it quickly?
Go to the E.R.: Although you may only have swelling, you run the risk of fractured facial bones. If one of the bones in the eye socket is broken, it can lead to problems moving the eye. Also, if the punch hit the eye socket, there is a chance that the eye was injured. You should go to the emergency room to have your injury evaluated.See 1 more doctor answer
