One Eye Bulging Out
Thyroid, others: In the 19 year old age group, thyroid malfunction is the most likely diagnosis. Less common are tumors behind the eye, some primary and some metastatic. If the bulging is accompanied by pain, especially on eye motion it could be infectionl this always requires evaluation and you should see a neuro-ophthalmologist or oculoplastic surgeon (not an optometrist). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

One eye poking out 1mm. Aches, NO vision loss. Scared its eye cancer/optic nerve glioma. I need info on this. I can't find an ophthalmologist! 19 y/o?
PROPTOSIS: Although I lack information regarding your prior medical issues, would certainly wonder about some congenital asymmetry, but if this is new, could be a sign of Grave's disease, a thyroid issue. Would contact your primary care physician first, and get a baseline evaluation. Your cancer and glioma concerns suggest info from computer. Get direct evaluation from a doctor. ...Read more

Had basic eye exam. Doc said one eye pokes out 1mm. No vision problems, but eye aches. Is it an orbital tumor? Will I go blind? Will it kill me? Im 19
Whoa - slow down! : You don't have a fatal orbital tumor. The eye doctor would have been able to detect that on your exam and would have discussed this with you. No person I know is perfectly symmetric. So one eye is a bit more prominent - no big deal. Ask eye doctor how common he sees this, and when you should be seen in follow up, if at all. Don't be a hypochondriac. Chill out, and discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

My left eye is poking out 1mm. Eye doc wants me to get thyroid tested. Eye aches, but no vision loss/double vision. What are chances it's a tumor?
Low chance of tumor: At 1mm difference It's more likely to be idiopathic ( one eye may be more nearsighted -thus larger- and protrude 1mm) or due to an abnormal thyroid level (either too high or too low). I would recommend thyroid levels be checked along with a visual field test of your peripheral vision and an MRI or CT scan of your "orbits" to check for tumor or enlarged musces from abnl thyroid. Unlikely a tumor ...Read more
Several causes: Eyelid twitching is very common, and often occurs from stress, fatigue, lack of sleep, and overuse of stimulants such as caffeine or decongestants. Local eye irritation can also add to this, such as dry eye, allergy, and blepharitis (eyelid infection, inflammation). Eyestrain and excessive reading can contribute. Try reducing the stress/stimulant factors, and get an eye exam for the other causes. ...Read more
After using eye drops the liquid keeps on coming out of my eyes though eye lids are closed.doesnt it result in loss of medicine? Done lasik 3 day back
Yes & no: The eyelid can hold only 1 drop of liquid before the liquid spills out. When you close your eyes, you'll squeeze out any excess fluid. Since the medicine has already had contact with the surface of the eye, it should still be effective. It helps to lean back, stare upwards, place one drop on the outer aspect of the eye then blink very slowly. That should minimize wastage & maximize effect. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Blurred vision in one eye, headaches, muscle twitches, dark/yellow circles around eyes. Cat scan of brain & blood work normal. Sound serious?
See an eye doc: Even though cat scan normal, you should still be seen by an ophthalmologist given your symptoms especially if they are progressive. It could be as simple as needing an updated pair of glasses if this is just eye strain(which can cause blurred vision, headaches, and stress related twitching around eyes), but it needs to be ruled out because it could be more serious. ...Read more
Ripple effect on R eye when blink/ look around. Seen 3 eye specialists. Said not related to dry eye / floater/ tear film. Then, what's the cause?
Ripple effect: Since the ripple effect occurs with blinking, the cause is on the surface of the eye. It was correct to assess the tear film because that would have been the most common cause. The second most common cause is a thin film of mucus from allergy. Be sure to describe to your next eye MD when and how often this occurs, if you know of any allergies, if you have tried artificial tears as a treatment. ...Read more
Cataract surgery 1wk post-op check up yesterday. Both eyes dilated. 24 hrs later, one eye still somewhat dilated. Normal or problem?
40 years old guy, one of my eye is as doctors say lazy eye, radial keratotomy done 15 years back, the vision of this eye is 8.5 cyl. Suggest treatmnt?
Second opinion: A lazy eye is one which while apparently normal, does not see well usually from childhood issues. If not the case, then there is some other problem. Radial k. Have a high rate of regression which might be part of the cause. I suggest you make an appointment with a corneal surgeon to have this evaluated and get a second opinion there. ...Read more
