My eyes give me headaches because my vision is not clear. Do I have cataracts?

Could be...: Many patients complain of headaches and blurred vision. Blurred vision may cause headaches, but other causes of headaches must be ruled out. See an eye doctor, and get checked for glasses. Then see your regular doctor to check out the headaches, especially if they are increasing in severity, or if you wake up with them. ...Read more

Cataracts are most commonly due to aging, but can be congenital (born with it), due to trauma or uveitis (eye inflammation). Can be worsened by long-term topical steroid ...Read more

My eye sight is not good, but when my eyes become watery, I can see perfectly clear. Why is that?

My eye sight is not good, but when my eyes become watery, I can see perfectly clear. Why is that?

Dry eye: A poor tear film will decrease vision, but extra water can make the corneal surface smooth to refract light better. Also can try making a partially relaxed fist with a small hole and looking through the top end to mimic a tiny pinhole to see better. ...Read more

See below: You really need to continue your evaluation. Sinus can cause your symptoms. Hopefully you have not had any trauma to the brain. Also you should have lab studies done. Try hydrating with very hot fluids to clear the sinus and see if this helps with that pressure feeling. Start with that if no relief get in to the doctor for more evaluation ...Read more

Cells or Vitreous: Floaters are either comprised of cells or components of the gel like substance inside the eye called Vitreous Humor. What you are actually seeing is the shadows cast by the floaters on your retina. I am glad you have seen your eye doctor.

Can braces affect my eyesight ? Like make my eyes blurry? I have sensetive eyes that get blurry for no reason and I'm scared it'll worsen with braces

Absolutely not: No relationship whatsoever. Please see a fully qualified specialist Orthodontist for an Initial Examination (usually complimentary) to discuss your malocclusion, treatment choices and to discuss your concerns. Please have your eyes examined by an eye specialist, an Ophthalmologist, to assure that there is no pathology. ...Read more

I get bad headaches when I don't wear my glasses, but my eye doctor said I don't need them anymore because my vision is 20/20. Something to worry abt?

No: If you are seeing well with what I assume is a very mild lens prescription, then feel free to wear the glasses. If you see better without, you may be adjusting and simply experiencing muscle related eye strain. ...Read more

Presbyopia: Presbyopia is typical age-related blurring of near vision. During our lifetime, we gradually lose the ability to accommodate when we look at objects close by. When it becomes symptomatic enough, then we often need reading glasses. This tends to gradually worsen as we get older. ...Read more

Refraction: This suggests uncorrected lens needs and perhaps more than an average amount of astigmatism. You should get your eyes refracted by your ophthalmologist who can investigate if there is anything else that is a problem. ...Read more

Do i need to fix my lazy eye? When i don't wear my glasses (pretty often), my lazy eye drifts sometimes and i get double vision. Is there something i need to do about this?

Do i need to fix my lazy eye? When i don't wear my glasses (pretty often), my lazy eye drifts sometimes and i get double vision. Is there something i need to do about this?

Things to ponder: When you don't wear your glasses & you start having double vision, your brain doesn't like it. Keep it up and your brain can decide to turn off the eye causing the double vision. If it happens often enough you can loose some vision permanently. Work with your eye doc to keep your eyes in the best shape possible. Wear your glasses or get surgery. What you are doing now could cause long term harm. ...Read more

If I have myopia and i don't wear glasses will my eyes get weaker ? And what do you think about contact lenses does it hart eyes in anyway

If I have myopia and i don't wear glasses will my eyes get weaker ? And what do you think about contact lenses does it hart eyes in anyway

No: Wearing or not wearing glasses at age 22 will neither accelerate myopia nor decrease its progression. It will go along its natural history course without being influenced by glasses use/nonuse. Contact lenses are an excellent choice if you feel ou want better vision without the appearance of lasses. With proper care, contact lenses are generally safe. ...Read more

Can having bad vision in one eye since I was little start to make my other eye worse? What can I do?

Can having bad vision in one eye since I was little start to make my other eye worse? What can I do?

Not to worry: It is an old tale that if one eye does not work well, the other has to work harder. In fact eyes work as hard as they can, all the time. The loss of one eye does not put an extra strain on the other. You of course have to be more careful not to injure the remaining eye but that is not due to the eye working extra hard. ...Read more

Reduce computer time: You may be staring inadvertently on the screen which then reduce the blink reflex. This then dries the eye out in reduces lubrication of the eye with the natural oils in the tear film. So the best thing you can do is use non-preservative lubricating eye drops every few hours, also use warm compresses each morning for about five minutes.And if more dryness is present, you may need to use oint/nite. ...Read more

My contacts almost always feel dry and my vision is blurry. I use OTC eye drops constantly but they only help for a little while. What can I do?

Go back to your doc: Either your lubrication regimen is not adequate, you don't have adequate tears to support the type of contacts, or the fit or type of contact is wrong for you. ...Read more

Need exam: The lubrication you are providing to the surface of the eye will do nothing to improve your vision if another pathologic condition is present (ie glaucoma, cataract, retinal disease) you need a comprehensive ophthalmologic exam. ...Read more
