Dry Eye In One Eye Only
Serious issue: If you had good vision in one eye which is now fading or worse if it suddenly went away, you should see an ophthalmologist for evaluation. The list of possibilities includes things like strokes in the eye, diabetes, optic neuritis, bleeding and infection.

In a way: A lazy eye is one which moves usually outwards from the other eye. It usually gets that way from infancy and childhood issues with the vision or eye position. In a few cases it is because of limited vision in one eye due to anatomical or physiological defects. But mostly the vision is down because of refractive or positional problems in which the brain makes a choice to ignore one eye. ...Read more
Several causes: Eyelid twitching is very common, and often occurs from stress, fatigue, lack of sleep, and overuse of stimulants such as caffeine or decongestants. Local eye irritation can also add to this, such as dry eye, allergy, and blepharitis (eyelid infection, inflammation). Eyestrain and excessive reading can contribute. Try reducing the stress/stimulant factors, and get an eye exam for the other causes. ...Read more
Is it safe to wear one contact lens in my right eye for only two hours. I have a form of pink eye in my left eye which still has some blurred vision.
Needs evaluation: The risk of sleeping in contacts is the development of a deposit of bacteria in the space between the lens and the front of your eye. This is increased with sleeping in the lens. If the vision is blurry , and the eye is red or painful, then you should see an ophthalmologist (not an optometrist) right away. ...Read more
Glaucoma in right eye only. Eye pressure in unaffected eye is 17. Is that a good target pressure number for the eye with glaucoma?
It might be, but...: That would be a good guess for a target pressure according to a large study the agis. But, that would not be low enough for some eye with very thin corneas. Those are at higher risk of glaucoma progression, even with pressures as low as13 or 14. If the cause of the high pressure in only one eye is because of an old trauma to that eye, 17 might be good enough if the other eye has no risk factors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Use progressive lenses and monovision contacts . When I cover one eye objects appear larger in one eye than the other. Why is that?
Accidental telescope: The eye with the more minus contact lens sees the larger image because a minus lens acts as an eyepiece in a Galilean telescope, while the progressive bifocals act as the objective lens. This is of theoretical, but little practical value clinically. Either switch to bifocal contact lenses or correct both eyes for distance with the lenses and use over-the counter readers. Aniseikonia fixed. ...Read more
