Can vision therapy help with migraines and visual disturbances? Bad eye strain and head pain upon focusing at close distances, and when in motion.

Can vision therapy help with migraines and visual disturbances? Bad eye strain and head pain upon focusing at close distances, and when in motion.

No: Most ophthalmologists and those schooled in the west do not put a lot of credence in vision therapy. They don't put a lot of credence on acupuncture but many find relief. With migraines, certainly consider the care of a neurologist. If appropriate your md may consider botox. At 28 you should not have trouble focusing at near unless you have latent hyperopia and need glasses. ...Read more

Could neurofeedback help with aspergers. specifically motor skills and hand eye coordination?

Could neurofeedback help with aspergers. specifically motor skills and hand eye coordination?

No proven benefit: There are no randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled studies to support the claims of those who provide NFB to older kids & teens with Autistic Spectrum Disorder Level 1 & average or above IQ's. EEG Biofeedback has been used since the 70's. When kids with ASD/ADHD relax & focus on 2-dimensional figures on a screen, a preferred activity, they do well. It doesn't generalize outside the lab. ...Read more

Sensation of sharp object in eye, hurts to blink or move eye, becomes watery .  Most often 1 eye sometimes both.  Eye gtts don't help.

Seek treatment: The symptoms you are describing could signify a corneal abrasion, (scratch on the clear part of the eye that lays over the iris), an infection, or iritis, (an inflammation of the iris). I suggest you seek immediate treatment. ...Read more

What is a laser eye surgery for rapid eye movement and nearsightedness?

What is a laser eye surgery for rapid eye movement and nearsightedness?

Laser eye surgery: It is possible with some laser platforms to do corneal refractive laser surgery on a patient with nystagmus (if that is what you mean by rapid eye movement), in order to correct myopia. Surface ablation / prk would likely be the best choice, if the rest of the evaluation indicates the procedure would be safe for that patient. ...Read more

Yes: It's called the optokinetic reflex if the eyes move, and recruitment if it's just the facial or eyelid muscles. If you experience these effects, you're playing video games too long. If these occur with minimal playing time, you should visit your doctor. ...Read more

Can nucynta (tapentadol) 100mgs cause hallucinations and uncontrollable rapid eye movement with eye pain w it?

Can nucynta (tapentadol) 100mgs cause hallucinations and uncontrollable rapid eye movement with eye pain w it?

Yes and no: There have been post- marketing case reports of Nucynta (tapentadol) causing hallucinations. I did not see any reference to rapid eye movements or eye pain associated with it. It would be a good idea to see an optometrist to see if you have glaucoma which many central nervous system drugs can trigger. A neurology or ophthalmologist should evaluate you for causes of nystagmus, the rapid eye movements ...Read more

Does the eye surgery to take out floaters involve side effects of light sensitivity and vision distortion?

Does the eye surgery to take out floaters involve side effects of light sensitivity and vision distortion?

Surgery?: Floaters are not generally treated with surgery unless associated with retinal detachment or surface wrinkling retinopathy. Laser has been used to break up annoying large floaters leaving annoying small floaters instead. As floaters are usually not harmful, and time usually results in dissipation and less annoyance, they are mostly left alone. Vitreous surgery can cause distortion and discomfort. ...Read more

Eye watering, light sensitivity, eye pain, periodic blurry vision that clears while blinking. All remises if I lay down and close eyes, ideas.

Eye watering, light sensitivity, eye pain, periodic blurry vision that clears while blinking. All remises if I lay down and close eyes, ideas.

See ophthalmologist: There are a number of conditions that can cause tearing, eye pain and photophobia. One of the more serious of these conditions is a corneal abrasion. Another is an infection of the cornea. While the cause of your symptoms may not be one of the above it's important to see an ophthalmologist as soon as possible for a proper diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Left eye-lid twitching for 3 weeks. Eye doctor confirmed healthy eyes with power change. yet to buy glass. Twitching while rubbing and blinking fast?

Lid Myokymia: Twitching of the lid is usually associated with fatigue or dry eyes, but any irritation of the trigeminal nerve (CN 5) could cause a reflex contraction of the orbicularis oculi muscle (CN 7 - facial nerve) , resulting in a fasciculation of the lid. In most cases this is benign, and relieved with rest and artificial tears. See an ophthalmologist for an eye examination if persists with new glasses. ...Read more

Does my son need an evaluation by a neuro-opthamologist ("significant deficits in visual scanning and speed of visual processing"). He is autistic.

Does my son need an evaluation by a neuro-opthamologist ("significant deficits in visual scanning and speed of visual processing"). He is autistic.

Yes, but not emergen: It would be a good idea, especially as visual processing is often an issue. Along with that, an evaluation by a pediatric neurologist, and testing for auditory processing would be useful and potentially add a lot of information to your child's therapeutic plan. That said, waiting until he can cooperate a bit more with testing, would be fine. ...Read more

Large dark floater in right eye & today developed floater in left eye. Retinas ok but floaters are distorting vision. Would cognitive therapy help?

Maybe: Cbt or cognitive behavioral therapy can be quite helpful in dealing with floaters. Unfortunately, tackling the floaters directly is not always possible or advisable, so it is very helpful to learn to deal with the floaters. ...Read more

Eye pain/tiredness, feel pressure.,left eye mostly. Feel as though seeing with one eye more. Showed to opthalmologist, no issues in eye dilation test?

Good news if DFE xm: is normal. You may want to check with your regular doctor to make sure that your thyroid panel is normal, as often unilateral (one side) lagophthalmos can present as the only symptom when the thyroid is involved. So you may need further tests to show that your TSH, Thyroid antibodies and free T3, (liothyronine) T4, rT3 are in the normal range too. Good call! Best of luck! ...Read more

Can wearing an eye patch, closing one eye, improve vision and minor eye lag/lazy eye in other eye? How much training would it take to improve

Can wearing an eye patch, closing one eye, improve vision and minor eye lag/lazy eye in other eye? How much training would it take to improve

Possibly: If you had patching when you were an infant and a young child, then your eyes (each alone) may have reached their best potential vision by age eight. The vision can then drop in one of the eyes and be brought up to its best 8 year old level when you are older. If the vision was poor by age eight, then you are out of luck. ...Read more
