Losing Eye Vision In Just One Eye
Serious issue: If you had good vision in one eye which is now fading or worse if it suddenly went away, you should see an ophthalmologist for evaluation. The list of possibilities includes things like strokes in the eye, diabetes, optic neuritis, bleeding and infection. Most conditions with loss of one eye are serious and need attention. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
I always had perfect vision. Sudden vision loss in one eye. Pressure on eye. Glaucoma or optic neuritis?
Many causes: Get to your specialist eye md right away. Acute glaucoma is painful with steamy vision before the blindness, so unlikely in your case. Optic neuritis, retinal vein occlusion, retinal detachment, stroke, migraine headache, vitreous hemorrhage, retinal hemorrhage and other causes can all be serious. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See an eye doctor: Cataracts are clouding of the natural lens of the eye. They are a reversible cause of decreased vision and should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist/cataract surgeon if they are interfering with vision. Auras describe a phenomenon of scintillating lights that begin on the side and move centrally. This is associated with migraines or just ocular migraines. See your dr. To rule out other causes. ...Read more
In the last 3 days the vision in my left eye shakes. Not the eye ball, just vision. I use contacts, mono vision. Left eye is reader. Is this serious?
Poked in the eye quite hard, double vision when looking up, eyelid is drooped, vision is "improved" (was myopic, now dist. vision clearer), headache?
Been to eye doc in July & oct. Both said eyes were fine. Now right eyelid twitches thoughout day. Is this eye problem? Eye lashes falling out in eye.
Needs evaluation: The risk of sleeping in contacts is the development of a deposit of bacteria in the space between the lens and the front of your eye. This is increased with sleeping in the lens. If the vision is blurry , and the eye is red or painful, then you should see an ophthalmologist (not an optometrist) right away. ...Read more
My spouse has eye floaters, but recently one seems to have covered her iris, impairing her vision in one eye. Is this a more serious case of eye floaters?
See an eye doc ASAP: Any new onset floaters with decreased vision requires a dilated examination with an eye doctor immediately. Though it is often only floaters (a normal change that causes the gel in the back of the eye to develop small cracks), it must be differentiated from a retinal hole, tear or detachment - which all require immediate treatment. See an eye doctor right away. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Headache above eye and nose, had blurred vision in my left eye for about 15 minutes, the clear. Could this be ocular migraine? Right eye ok
Headache: Yes it could be a migraine. Did you have nausea? Would get eye angles checked for narrow angles and eye pressures and optic nerve checked to be sure all ok.
