Do contacts cause dry eye syndrome?

Do contacts cause dry eye syndrome?

Probably not: Contacts float on a thin layer of tears coating the front of the eye. Because of this, contact wearers are very sensitive to dryness of the eyes as the lens will become uncomfortable, if the eye is a little dry. The contact does not cause the dryness, but is a sensitive early warning. If you are starting to have some symptoms see your ophthalmologist who can recommend more advanced lenses. ...Read more

Does everyday eye accommodation, focusing or blinking worsen pigmentary dispersion syndrome?

Does everyday eye accommodation, focusing or blinking worsen pigmentary dispersion syndrome?

A little bit: The motion of the iris against the underlying fibers that support the lens (zonules) rubs off the pigment from the back of the iris which is the basis for pigmentary dispersion. A little bit comes off with everyday normal use and it can be accelerated with athletic pursuits. As long as your ophthalmologist feels that the internal eye pressure is not being increased, this is ok. ...Read more

Advanced Macular pucker & stable glaucoma in 1 eye. 2nd eye mild ERM. What is prognosis for adequate vision. Concerned that both eyes have disease.

Advanced Macular pucker & stable glaucoma in 1 eye. 2nd eye mild ERM. What is prognosis for adequate vision. Concerned that both eyes have disease.

Close follow up: Macular pucker can occur as a consequence of spontaneous pucker. There are procedures that can be done to help eliminate this but they carry some risk so usually the retinal surgeons who do this will wait for a level of lowered vision that is significant or note progression as a reason to intervene. The glaucoma is a separate issue for both eyes. These conditions should be closely monitored. ...Read more

Progressive macular pucker 20/30 vision, distortion & glaucoma. Visual fIeld good,nerve damage 30-45%.Would vitrectomy cause glaucoma to progress?

Possible: Vitrectomy and glaucoma may have an association. It is suspected that glaucoma occurs more often in patients who have had vitrectomy and subsequent cataract surgery. An ongoing clinical trial is aimed to answer this question with more clarity.

Optic Nerve RNFL OCT shows thinning temporal- both eyes, 20/20 both eyes, IOP 17 both eyes. Retinal exam normal. Is this significant

Response: Since all you provide are some brief findings regarding your retinas, I must conclude these tests were obtained due to some neurological symptoms. 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.

Micropsia can be caused by optical factors (such as wearing glasses), by distortion of images in the eye (such as optically, via swelling of the cornea or from changes in the shape of the retina such as from retinal edema,macular degeneration, and more ...Read more
