Nearsighted In One Eye And Farsighted In The Other
Yes: Its not typical but its not unusual. ...Read more
Yes: While unlikely, it is possible to have some degree of nearsightedness (myopia) in one eye while having some farsightedness (hyperopia) in the other. The myopic eye could have a cataract, causing nearsightedness, or the farsighted eye may be smaller from birth, causing the hyperopia. There are other possible causes, but there is certainly a possibility. ...Read more
Possible: Its not that common but its not impossible. Some people could have mixed correction. ...Read more
Check it out: Refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism) can naturally be different between eyes. However, there are many eye conditions, such as cataracts which can cause the refractive error of one eye to become significantly different than the other eye. See your ophthalmologist for a complete examination to look into the issue further. ...Read more

What are the chances of having a lazy eye if I am nearsighted in one eye and farsighted in the other?
Could glasses help with depth perception? I squint most of the time. My vision is 20/30 in one eye and 20/40 in the other.
I have a refractive error of -5.75 in both eyes (myopia & astigmatism) and floaters in both eyes. Is a pupil dilation better than the digital retinal?
Yes: Some people have unstable refractive errors and can experience changing prescriptions throughout their lives. Many things influence your refraction including the length of your eye, the shape of the cornea and lens, degeneration of the cornea and or lens, and changes in body chemistry especially blood sugar. The refraction can change in many ways throughout life. ...Read more
Use progressive lenses and monovision contacts . When I cover one eye objects appear larger in one eye than the other. Why is that?
Accidental telescope: The eye with the more minus contact lens sees the larger image because a minus lens acts as an eyepiece in a Galilean telescope, while the progressive bifocals act as the objective lens. This is of theoretical, but little practical value clinically. Either switch to bifocal contact lenses or correct both eyes for distance with the lenses and use over-the counter readers. Aniseikonia fixed. ...Read more
Normal: Astimatism is common and can be unequal between eyes, or even absent in one and present in the other. ...Read more
Glaucoma in right eye only. Eye pressure in unaffected eye is 17. Is that a good target pressure number for the eye with glaucoma?
It might be, but...: That would be a good guess for a target pressure according to a large study the agis. But, that would not be low enough for some eye with very thin corneas. Those are at higher risk of glaucoma progression, even with pressures as low as13 or 14. If the cause of the high pressure in only one eye is because of an old trauma to that eye, 17 might be good enough if the other eye has no risk factors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm 20yo. In pics I have red eye effect in both eyes but the pupil is more bright red in left eye and greater in diameter as compared to the right eye?
Anisocoria: Pupil size inequalities (anisocoria) requires an eye exam, and it should be done right away. There are important things to rule out to ensure that your pupils are normal. About 20% of individuals have this normally (physiologic), whereas others may have it on the basis of disease or medications. The latter causes: 3rd nerve palsy, horner's, aidies, certain drugs (eg eye meds), injury, inflamed i. ...Read more
Yes, but unlikely: Heterochromia is a condition affecting skin pigmentation and this can also involve the iris (heterochromia iridis). Complete heterochromia itself is very rare and typically only seen in animals. Thus although it is highly unlikely, it is possible to have central heterochromia in one eye and complete heterochromia in the other. ...Read more
