Pain In Corner Of Left Eye
Hi, it's been few days that I get a sharp needle like pain at the inside corner of my left eye, when I look/roll my eye at right side.?
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

My 4month dd has fatty tissue on outer corner of left eye. Will this go away with age or should I consult more. Dd looks and follow things properly?
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?
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
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
Saw rotating "barber's pole" black & white pattern out of corner of left eye for 2 secs. Another ocular migraine? Looked to that side, it was gone.
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

Sometimes lately, especially in the morning, I see little tiny flashes/ flickers in the far left corner of my left eye. Should I be really worried?
Not as long as it's: Tiny, flickering flashes. If you see a whole lot of flashes or floaters coming down like a curtain, that would be an emergency.

If it's bothering you in increased frequency, then you call see your eye doctor, and discuss whether or not you need to come in for an exam. ...Read more

Get seen.: Any change in skin coloration has the potential to be something serious. Usually it isn't, but you need to be examined to find out what the spot is, and if treatment is necessary. Wear sunscreen so the spot does not get darker. And you don't get more of them, if it is due to sun exposure. ...Read more
I everyday for over a week I have been seeing what looks like static on a TV, black and white flashing lights in the lower left corner of my left eye?
Allergies: It sounds like an allergy based symptom and may respond well to a trail of over the counter antihistamine eye drop, like Zaditor (ketotifen) ™. You may try some warm compresses to your eyelid with gentle cleaning with diluted baby shampoo on a washcloth. Look up a YouTube™ video on blepharitis treatment for specific details on eyelid hygiene. ...Read more
