These results could be part of Multiple Sclerosis, if other signs and symptoms support the diagnosis. The thinning of the RNFL is notable, and should be followed up. Would a Concierge visit allow more in depth understanding? ...Read more
What could cause sudden onset persistent bilateral para-central scotomas and left eye dominant bilateral nasal corectopia?
Many possibilities: Bilateral para-central scotomas could be due to brain issue or due to symmetric retinal disease. Corectopia means your pupil is not in the center and is not likely related to the other problem. Hopefully your ophthalmologist is doing the appropriate evaluation and/or referal for these findings. ...Read more

Unlikely from LASIK: Floaters are caused by clumping or debris in the vitreous jelly of the eye. Most near sighted individuals and inidviduals over 50 see floaters at some point in their life. Any type of trauma can exacerbate floaters and if the lasik surgery was 'traumatic' the floaters in the jelly may be noticed or worsened. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Monocular Diplopia, halos, and glare. Ghosting images, blurry far away. 3 eye doctors said eyes healthy, MRI said brain healthy. What could it be?
Monocular Diplopia: Monocular Diplopia is almost always due to something in that eye: cataract (PSC), irregular astigmatism (send us copy of your Pentacam), irregular nerve (send us copy of your nerve photos and HRT and HVF), and/or tear film abnormality (send us copy of your Lipiscan). Consult with us to help solve this issue. ...Read more
Yes: Anterior blepharitis typically will be noticed by debris on the lashes. This is commonly caused by overgrowth of bacteria (which normally live there). The toxins they secrete can start the inflammatory cycle which can lead to dry eye. Alternatively, demodex mites are another cause of inflammation that can be diagnosed by plucking eyelashes and looking under the microscope. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
