Hi. .. Yesterday I made custom laisek to both eyes..... Today my left eye is blurry with red marks in the white area. I can see clearer in right eye?

See your surgeon: Visual loss would be an issue that needs to assessed by your surgical team. Redness can be small bruises from lasik suction ring or a sign of healing problems. Seek follow up care asap. ...Read more

I've had left eye ptosis since birth. Now my left eye is blurry, I think its because it doesn't completely close when I sleep. Can ptosis be corrected?

I've had left eye ptosis since birth. Now my left eye is blurry, I think its because it doesn't completely close when I sleep. Can ptosis be corrected?

Yes: Ptosis, or drooping eye lid, can be corrected by various surgical techniques. However, if your eye is not closing completely, be cautious. Most ptosis surgeries will have a high risk of making the incomplete eye closure worse. A severe dry eye from incomplete eye closure can lead to blindness and may be much worse to live with than the ptosis. See your eye md specialist to discuss. ...Read more

Go to Opht ASAP: Sudden blurriness is worrisome. I would try to see the ophtalmologist or optometrist right away today or tomorrow or at least a pcp to rule out retinal tears, acute arterial or venous retinal vessel thrombosis, vitreal diseases. Changes in vision, blurriness, blind spots, halos around lights, or dimness of vision should always be evaluated by a medical professional. ...Read more

Was sitting, stood up & within secs of walking my left eye got blurry. I rubbed it & it disappeared in a sec. Is it serious? TIA? My mom said no worry

Was sitting, stood up & within secs of walking my left eye got blurry. I rubbed it & it disappeared in a sec. Is it serious? TIA? My mom said no worry

Listen to your mum: Did you get the notion of TIA from Dr. Google? The chances of a healthy 18-year-old having a TIA are so absurdly remote that it's not even in the differential diagnosis. Even if it were, what happened to you sounds like nothing at all. PS Your post says US but are you Australian? You write like one. ...Read more

Suddenly can't see out of eye the other day I was watching tv and I started having double vision. Then the next day I woke up and my left eye was blurry and I couldn't see out of it at all. I've been getting migraines my entire life and a few hours after

Suddenly can't see out of eye the other day I was watching tv and I started having double vision. Then the next day I woke up and my left eye was blurry and I couldn't see out of it at all. I've been getting migraines my entire life and a few hours after

The: The symptoms are not typical for a migraine alone. You noted two distinct and dramatic symptoms (double vision, blur), separated in time, and I think you indicate a headache as well. More history will help to zero in on the problem, and if you were my patient i'd have you come in promptly (i.e. That day) to figure out what's going on. While migraine (which can change in presentation over time), loss of control of a pre-existing eye muscle imbalance, and/or surface irritation would be the most benign cause, other, time sensitive and potentially dangerous situations should be investigated immediately. You might have a vascular cause needing immediate attention (e.g. Transient ischemic attack, temporal arteritis or other inflammations) or other issues. My advice: see your eye md asap. ...Read more

If I apply pressure to a certain part of my neck, my left eye goes blurry. Is this from lack of blood in the eye?

If I apply pressure to a certain part of my neck, my left eye goes blurry. Is this from lack of blood in the eye?

Stop pushing: The ophthalmic artery is the first branch of the internal carotid artery. If you press just to the outside of the windpipe, where you feel a pulse, you are pushing on your carotid artery. This also supplies blood to the brain, and if you press on a certain spot your heart rate and blood pressure may suddenly drop. So, you are probably obstructing blood flow to the eye. Not a good thing. ...Read more

Sometimes my left eye gets blurry and sometimes my right eye can that be a brain tumor? When im on the computer also when looking at the sun

Sometimes my left eye gets blurry and sometimes my right eye can that be a brain tumor? When im on the computer also when looking at the sun

Two things: First, don't look at the sun-- it's a bad idea. Second, it is common for people to blink less when they are staring at a screen. The resultant dry eye can cause temporary blurred vision. You might try to give yourself a drop of an artificial tear when this happens. If it clears up, you've got your answer. ...Read more

Hi ive had headache behind my left eye and blurry vision could this be becos of my thyroid being under active? Or my liothyronine?

Thyroid eye disease: Thyroid disorders can cause a number of eye signs & symptoms, broadly classified as TED (thyroid eye disease). Interestingly, this is an auto-immune disease. The same antibodies that attack your thyroid, attack the orbital tissues around your eye, including the orbital fat that cushions & protects your eyeball, and the extraocular muscles that attach to your eyeball and move your eyes in all ways. ...Read more

I have swollen feet and no period for nearly 2 month and my left eye is blurry, can you get pregnant from precum as we never got very far.

I have swollen feet and no period for nearly 2 month and my left eye is blurry, can you get pregnant from precum as we never got very far.

See your doctor: First of all, you should do a pregnancy test to see if you are pregnant or not. Besides that, the fact that your feet have been swollen for nearly 2 months and your vision in your left eye is blurry is very worrisome to me. Please be seen and evaluated by your doctor right away. At 38 you really should be using reliable contraception if you do not want to be pregnant! ...Read more

Could be serious.: It could b serious. These r symptoms that go along with heart disease & angina (mainly, blockages in the arteries that restrict blood flow). Ur young age lowers the odds. If the symptoms get worse after exercise or exertion (& get better with rest) then the odds turn against u. Talk to ur doctor, or (if symptoms recur & don't go away,) go to the ER or urgent care center right away. Something's up! ...Read more

Could you tell me why my left eye is really blurry and had bad stabbing pain in it?

Needs checking: I pain and a vision change could be a variety of causes. The best and simplest is to see an ophthalmologist and have an intra ocular pressure test to rule out glaucoma. That is a treatable condition that can cause vision loss. They can also see in there is any inflammation, retinal changes and infection present. I would go today. ...Read more

Retinal detachment?: Is a potentially serious/vision cause of sudden visual loss that needs to be ruled out rapidly. As does ciculatory problems such as vein occlusion or stroke. Please seek urgent attention from a GP, emergency doctor or ophthalmologist licensed in your area. Here is some general information on visual loss.

I ordered colored contacts. What could be causing my left eye to be blurry on the sides as if they are too small & blocking my vision it's not dirty?

The contacts: If you normally have larger pupils, the colored contacts could certainly give the perception that your peripheral vision is blocked. A more serious problem could be poorly fitting lenses causing corneal swelling. All should be evaluated by an eye doctor if you are going to continue to wear them. ...Read more

I'm a 18 year old girl and my left eye is fuzzy/blurry today, even with my contacts n?

See opthalmologist: You may have a mild condition known as "floaters" where eye debris in the vitreous humor of the eye moves and obscures your vision periodically. However, you need to see an opthalmologist to rule out a significant condition known as retinal detachment that can permanently cause vision loss. You could have allergy symptoms that could temporarily cause blurry vision but would occur in both eyes. ...Read more

I wear glasses but my left eye is still blurry with them on. What could be the problem because my prescription is up to date?

I wear glasses but my left eye is still blurry with them on. What could be the problem because my prescription is up to date?

Recheck needed: One of the following is possible: 1) the prescription was wrong (the responses in the office are subjective) 2) the one lens was made wrong (most optical shops give you a two month window for a remake with no charge) 3) some change occurred in the one eye (unlikely unless you took a long time to get the glasses made). Re check with your ophthalmologist. ...Read more

My left eye is extremely blurry. I tried using eye drops to clear any debris, and looked to see if I can see anything. Any idea this happened sometime within the last two hours. I do wear contacts and as I was putting one in it felt abnormally painful.

My left eye is extremely blurry. I tried using eye drops to clear any debris, and looked to see if I can see anything. Any idea this happened sometime within the last two hours. I do wear contacts and as I was putting one in it felt abnormally painful.

Pain: Pain when inserting a contact lens and blurry vision are concerning signs. Your symptoms suggest you may have an eye infection (corneal ulcer) for which you are at increased risk as a contact lens wearer. Certainly there are other possibilities such as corneal inflammation, but a corneal ulcer must be excluded and, if present, treated immediately. I recommend you call your eye doctor or proceed to the nearest er immediately for an evaluation. ...Read more

My left eye is becoming blurry since I was 13 years old. A doctor told me that it was myopia. What should I do to stop this?

Corrective lenses: If the doctor who told you it was myopic was correct, then you can see better with corrective lenses (contacts or eyeglasses). You probably have some degree of myopia in the other eye as well. See your ophthalmologist for an evaluation and refraction (the test that determines the power you need). ...Read more

My left eye has been blurry off and on all day. The eye doctor said I have 20-20 vision. And my left eyelid keeps getting cysts and swelling up.

Lid cysts or styes: Lid cysts, styles or chalaza can occur due to sweat or makeup blocking the openings of the meibomian glands behind the eyelashes. They can be treated with hot compresses and lid hygiene. ...Read more
