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

At 28 you should not have trouble focusing at near unless you have latent hyperopia and need glasses. ...Read more

I have ocular herpes on left eye.But after treatment my right eye is starting to get the same symptoms,is there a chance my right eye can get affected?

Get care immediately: Yes, you could have herpes in the other eye. Or sympathetic ophthalmia, in which injury or infection in one eye causes the immune system to attack the other. Either can be very serious if not diagnosed and treated promptly; you should immediately contact the doctor treating your ocular herpes.
