Eye Will Stop
Depends: If the drops have been prescribed by an ophthalmologist for a specific reason or disease, then you should only stop with his or her permission. If the drops are yours, especially over the counter, you can always stop and see if the symptom you are treated is still present or not. ...Read more
Both: Most eye drops for glaucoma lower the eye's pressure. The lower the pressure, the slower the damage to the vision. The goal is to slow the damage to as close to a standstill as possible. The amount of pressure lowering needed to stop the vision loss is different for everyone and the eyes must be monitored closely by an eye doctor to ensure that no further vision loss is occurring. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
The blink reflex is normal: But if you feel that you are blinking hard, and unable to see anything, because your eyes are always blinking shut, then you need to go to your eye doctor emergently, and have this evaluated. If we didn't blink, our eyes would dry out. So our blink reflex protects our tear film to lubricate our eyes continuously until we sleep. We normally blink every 4 to 6 seconds, or at least 10 to 15 times per minute. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes and no: If there are abnormalities in the curvature of your eye because of the lasik, then yes. Usually, folks have a lot of rapid change in their prescription. It is not indicated for minor changes occurring years after the original procedure. There is currently no indication for it in the treatment of dry eyes. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Blockage or dry eye : One cause could be a nasolacrimal duct obstruction on that side. A history of trauma to the nose or no runny nose with the tearing might suggest this. It usually is pretty constant. Another cause could be dry eye. This might be accompanied by burning, tearing, light sensitivity or redness but not necessarily. It tends to fluctuate. I'd suggest trying some artificial tears four times a day. ...Read more
It takes a while: Pink eye is most commonly caused by a virus and does not respond to medication (including eye drops). Bacterial eye infections are responsive to medication. The good news is that the infection usually improves within 1 week or so, at which time the redness should go away. Depending on the severity of the infection, it may take up to 2 weeks or longer for the eye to look completely normal. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Eye twitching: If this is a pulling or quivering sensation in one or several eyelids then it is likely mykyomia which tends to be intermittent and resolve after months. If it is bilateral or forceful it may be hemifacial spasm or bilateral blepharospasm and these may be benign but require evaluation. Lastly especially in a child it could be a tic or habit spasm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Do you know if atropine eye drops can control or keep myopia from increasing? My daughter's nearsightedness is getting worse and the optometrist suggested she use atropine eye drops to slow it down.
Learned something!: At first glance I questioned the soundness of this advice but upon research it appears this is an acceptable approach now in Pediatric near nearsightedness. Just be sure to keep your follow up appointments to monitor the medications effect. http://eyeworld.org/article-atom-trials-find-atropine-eye-drops-reduce-myopia-progression ...Read more
Identify source: Itching comes from exposure to something which starts an allergic response in the eyes and from dryness. Dryness is easy to help with lubricating drops. Allergic itching requires an end to the exposure of the allergen or the use of anti allergic eyedrops which can be obtained in any pharmacy. ...Read more
Probably: If you're consuming a high quantity of caffeine, then probably yes. Other than caffeine withdrawal symptoms, decreasing your caffeine intake is not a bad idea. Other reasons for your eyes to twitch include fatigue and low calcium. Are you getting enough sleep? Are your calcium levels low? Hope this helps! ...Read more
Unlikely: Most causes of blurry vision are instrinsic to the eye and are not part of a lethal systemic disease so death is not likely. Depending upon the cause, and more likely if there is pain, you may have a condition which can impair the vision. You should seek the attention of your ophthalmologist to determine this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
