What makes my vision correct itself when I put my fingers under eyes?

Optic alteration: When you press on the eye underneath, you alter the relationship between the optics at the front of the eye and the retina which receives the image at the back of the eye. If the correspondance is correct, the vision will improve although it will have some distortion. It is obviously not a practical option to correct your need for glasses. ...Read more

What are the chemical stimuli in the human body the eyes fingers etc (sense organs) or something else?

There are a variety of neurochemicals that are part of this relay including acetylcholine and epinephrine and many others. The specific one depends upon the circuit in question. ...Read more

Why does a10m old normaly developing boy rubs nose or eyes with fingers few times a day randomly. Sometimes kind of shrinks his eyes and. Opens?

Allergies?: What you describe sounds like his nose and eyes itch, and rubs his nose and eyes, and squints to try and relieve the itch. If there is a family history of allergies, such as hay fever, asthma or eczema, then it is more likely to be that. A visit to his pediatrician will help sort things out for you. ...Read more

The lower layer part of the eyes, if you (pull it down with one finger), will it change appearance? Clues? Do it 5 times? Heal back?

Lower lid: I don't think you can easily pull down anything but the lower lid. If you try this with the eyeball it was be painful. Lids can be moved around and pulled on for short intervals without any change in the basic structure so don't worry about long effects. However, why are you doing this? ...Read more

I tried closing my eyes and pressing them hard inside with my fingers out of idiocy to check if any pain, I can bear...can it cause serious injury?

No injury: It is never a good idea to do things to yourself which causes pain but if you pressed on your eyes through your closed eyelids and your vision is fine afterwards and you have no pain afterwards then you need not worry that damage has been done. Just learn from your mistake and don't do it again. ...Read more

If I pick my eye boogers with my finger, will I have more wrinkle on the corners of my eyes?

If I pick my eye boogers with my finger, will I have more wrinkle on the corners of my eyes?

Eyelid Wrinkles: The lower eyelid skin is the thinnest skin on our bodies. It is also placed in an area that gets lots of sun exposure and so it loses its elastic and collagen faster then other areas. Also, the thick cheek skin causes wear & tear on the lower lid skin when we smile. All of these factors are probably more important in the cause of wrinkles on the lid then occasionally picking. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I hit my eye with my finger yesterday, and now one side of that eye is red. Should I be worried or not?

Hemorrhage: You probably bumped a vein in the conjunctiva and it leaked a tiny spot of blood underneath which will spread in that space so it looks worse than it is. If you vision is fine and you have no pain or discharge, that is by far the most likely thing and you can just wait for it to absorb although it might spread a little bigger before than happens. ...Read more

I have spider angiomas, two underneath my eyes and one on my pinky finger. What could be causing this and how are they treated?

I have spider angiomas, two underneath my eyes and one on my pinky finger. What could be causing this and how are they treated?

Spider veins/angioma: Most spider angiomas aren't related to other disease; some are caused by thyroid disease, pregnancy, liver disease, etc. They are caused by dilated veins beneath the skin. The two main treatment options are sclerotherapy (substance injected in vein to clot it) and vascular laser treatments. You may requires several sessions of either to make them go away.

Motility: As the doctor moves a finger in front of you, he/she is assessing the way your eyes are tracking (moving). If your eyes don't move as they should, or if unsteady movements are detected, further tests are generally necessary to diagnose the problem. If your eyes are unable to move to one side, depending on which eye, usually a neurologist should evaluate you. Nystagmus (shaky eyes) may cause dizziness. ...Read more
