Need glasses. That is why I'm wondering should I do some sort of eye exercise or go to to an eye specialist?
Exercises: The goal of eye exercises is to teach the patient to have improved control of the eye misalignment. This treatment does not make the eye misalignment go away; it may only help it become less frequent. Unfortunately, many patients who undergo this treatment will continue to decompensate, ultimately lose control of their eye misalignment, and require surgery. ...Read more

I get occasional swelling over one eye during exercise also happened during series of sneezes. Happens 4-6 weeks do get allergy shots. MRI was clean?
Allergic: That fact that the swelling is associated with sneezing suggests that these are allergic reaction although having unilateral swelling is unusual. If the swelling occurs only when exercising outdoors, airborne allergens may well be the cause as well. Allergy shots works about 80% of the time and usually takes months to become effective. Try antihistamine by mouth or eye drop prior to exercise. ...Read more
Congenital ptosis: Ptosis, or droopy eyelid, can occur when someone is born (congenital), with trauma, or when someone gets older.

Does compressing tummy once in a while to flatten tummy (light isometric exercise) increase eye pressure? What about doing it the whole day? Thx
Intense internal pressure can increase intracranial pressure and slightly affect eye pressure, but only temporarily. Under more pressure, your eye increases the outflow of fluid to bring the pressure back to normal. The type of exercise you are describing will have no effect.
Don't worry. Enjoy your workout. ...Read more

Eye floater: Floaters are pieces of protein or other matter within the vitreous humor of the eye, therefore casting a shadow up on the retina and appearing as a dark spot that slowly "floats."

Get moving: At 20, it is unusual to have problems commonly associated with blurred vision such as cataracts. It might be something simple like the need for corrective lenses/glasses. However, I personally would have my 20 year old start walking in the direction of an ophthalmology office for an eye exam. ...Read more
I heard you can exercise your eyes by seeing something close and seeing something far away. Is this effective?
Somewhat: If you have certain near vision problems (convergence insufficiency, for example), there is benefit from practicing with focusing on an object like a pencil tip as you bring it as close as you can. If the difficulty arises from the need to wear prescription glasses or the nead to wear reading glasses, eye exercises do not really work. Also, be wary of ads for costly vision exercise "programs". ...Read more

2x now in diff times after intense exercise I saw a flashing ring on right eye that gets bigger and goes away w/o headache. No eye condition. What is?
Visual migraine: This is likely a visual migraine, which occurs without a headache in many cases. If it clears completely in 15-20 minutes, it is very unlikely to be a retinal or neurologic problem. However, you should still have a complete ophthalmic examination with dilated exam of the back of the eye including retina and optic nerve head. I also recommend a visual field test at your ophthalmologist's office. ...Read more
Exercise & eye infxn: As long as your vision isn't impaired to the point that it would increase your risk of injury while having an eye infection it should be safe to do so.

What type of workout: Most eye infections are limited to the outside of the eye and in almost all cases, as long as you are being treated you can exercise. More importantly than whether you can exercise is the type and location of exercise. It is not a good idea to swim or share gym equipment if you have an infection, since you can transfer it to others. You should ask your eye doctor about your specific infection. ...Read more
No: No, but the incident or cause of floaters is a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous (jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. ...Read more
After vigorous exercise, I often experience a spot of distorted vision and I think it is coming from my left eye. What is causing this?
Need exam to be sure: It is difficult to say what is causing this without an eye examination, including a careful retinal examination. The symptom of visual distortion usually comes from a retinal problem, for example is there was a temporary swelling in the retina after exercise. However, exercise does not usually cause this. Other possibilites could be optic nerve, vascular, or even brain related problems. ...Read more

Meanwhile, you should not engage in "hard exercise" or consume caffeinated or alcoholic beverages. Please don't delay. ...Read more
