What to do if I do not want my wife to take a medication that will change her eye color?

Why?: The only medication which I know of which can change eye color is the prostaglandin medication used to treat glaucoma. If she needs glaucoma treated, then that is a priority. Color will only change if the original color is hazel to light brown which can then be darkened by these drugs. I suspect your wifes eyes are beautiful whatever the color. ...Read more

My eyes are becoming big and bulging out. I am taking medication for bp. Could they be related?

My eyes are becoming big and bulging out. I am taking medication for bp. Could they be related?

Unusual: The appearance of the eyes becoming big or protruding is usually from "lid retraction", where the upper and lower lids open so wide that the white of the eye can be seen even above the eye. This is most commonly from hyperthyroidism (grave's disease), which could also be associated with hypertension. Orbital inflammation could also cause this, but rarely bilaterally. Should get this checked out. ...Read more

My eyes keep burning and they often get teary. Should I just keep washing them with cold, clean water or should I opt for medication? Thank you!

Sounds like Dry eyes: Dry eyes are an often the culprit of many symptoms in the eye which can include burning, stinging, tearing, foreign body sensation, tiredness, heaviness, blurred vision and eye pain. You can have some or all of the symptoms or even none of the symptoms and have dry eye.

I have severe chronic anxiety, sometimes when I'm very nervous I Have urge to move roll eyes and blink Is this a concern? Not on any medication

Not on meds?: You list medications. Did you stop taking them? You don't list therapy and for chronic severe anxiety you need to be treated. Does the eye movement reduce symptoms? If it does, that's not a bad mgmt strategy. If it doesn't, you can learn good skills in therapy. Concern is good if it guides you to improvement. Otherwise, it's not useful. You decide if you'd use it well. Best! ...Read more

I'm 24 years old but I have so many wrinkles under my eyes, it makes me deppressed, is there any way to vanish them? Does it have any medications?

Depends: The cause of the wrinkles is important in treating them. Do you have bad allergies? Do you smoke? Do you tan? If you are not getting sleep because of late nights/partying, all these can contribute. Good moisturizing lotion can help, but changing habits may be your best bet. If those things don't help, check with your local dermatologist or plastic surgeon. ...Read more

Greetings Dr Sandra, I have a problem wit my eyes because While I was off my mind I stared at the sun, is there any medication that I can use to heal m?

Greetings Dr Sandra, I have a problem wit my eyes because While I was off my mind I stared at the sun, is there any medication that I can use to heal m?

Depends: Is the vision changed? Staring at the sun normally is too painful to sustain and you would blink and probably avoid the light to prevent damage. True staring at the sun while not blinking focuses the sun on the light receptors of the retina and will burn them out causing permanent loss. No medication will correct this but time will cause some improvement. ...Read more
