Good luck. ...Read more

What causes difficulty focusing my eyes?

What causes difficulty focusing my eyes?

Dryness: Most often, difficulty focusing from time to time is due to dryness, which causes changes in the smoothness of the front of the eye. On the other hand, if you are over 40, and the difficulty is with reading, then it is presbyopia, an aging change. Check out this webpage for more info http://www.2020vision. Com/monovision.

I have daily headaches, eye pain. And I have difficulty focusing when reading - what can I do?

Start by ruling out a physical explanation--eye exam, general physical. If those are normal, consider stress, anxiety, & depression, all of which can produce these kinds of physical symptoms and are highly treatable. ...Read more

My friend said that her eye keep eartquating meaning it keeps moving up and down very fast. Why?

Myokymia: Eyelid myokymia is very common (i assume the lid is moving not the entire eye). Often it has no identifiable cause though allergy, dry eye and lack of sleep may contribute. If the eye itself is moving that would definitely require additional evaluation by an ophthalmologist as nystagmus (rythmic movement of the eyes)can be suggestive of underlying neurologic disease. ...Read more
