Pain in the inner corner of my left eye. Build up when I wake up in the morning and have to clean my eye with a cotton bud. Pain when I blink.

Possible sty: The pain on the corner of the eyelid exacerbated with blinking and morning increased mucous buildup sounds like a sty. I recommend starting moderately hot wet compresses 2-4 times daily for 10' followed by gentle massage. B careful not to burn yourself. This should help drain the backed up oil gland and relieve the pain. If not better, see an eye md. ...Read more

Two choices: This is either an anteriorly placed fat pad or a dermoid. The former is benign although it might be unsightly and could be removed at some later date. Dermoids are local growths of skin related tissues including fat which can grow, get inflamed and sometimes interfere with function. Have a pediatric ophthalmologist look at your 4 month old. ...Read more

I've been having darkness/flashing in lower outside corner of left eye for a month. Normal retinal exam. Optometrist today told me it was because my eyes were very dry and inflamed. Possible?

I've been having darkness/flashing in lower outside corner of left eye for a month. Normal retinal exam. Optometrist today told me it was because my eyes were very dry and inflamed. Possible?

More likely PVD: Flashing in the peripheral (outside part) of vision is not likely due to dry eyes. I would be concerned about retinal and vitreous changes, specifically an evolving posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) although you are quite young for this. That is the most common reason for flashes, and often a prominent floater results. I would seek consultation from an ophthalmologist (md) if it persists. ...Read more

Corner of left eye cheek bone injury, what to do?

Corner of left eye cheek bone injury, what to do?

Have an exam: An injury in this area should be examined by an ophthalmologist to rule out any serious insult to the eyeball and eyelids. The cheekbone is fairly thick and would take a big blow to fracture it but an exam would be important just in case. Any change in vision, double vision, eyelid swelling, numbness would also be concerning symptoms. ...Read more

Maybe: Your typical visual hallucinations from acephalic migrains usually last 10 to 15 minutes. However, not everyone has textbook symptoms. Vitreous pulling on the retina could cause visual symptoms as well, which uncommonly can lead to retinal detachment. I would get a full dilated eye exam. ...Read more

Woke up with outside corner of left eye feeling very sore and a little swollen. There is no redness at all. Had no injury at all. What could this be?

Chalazion: This is caused by a blocked excretory duct in a gland, but this gland does not know its duct is blocked so it continues to produce its secretions causing pain and a lump on the lid. Use warm moist compresses 10 min 4 x day. ...Read more

Could you tell me why I cannot really see out of the corner of my left eye?

Visual field deficit: There certainly is no way to tell from here, but if you have a new visual field defect (scotoma?) then you need to see an optometrist (eye checks/glasses) or an ophthalmologist (an eye md/surgeon) and get a full evaluation. It could be the cornea, the lens, the retina, the nerve...Etc., and some things are more serious and need attention more urgently. ...Read more
