Right And Left Eyes Not Tracking Together
Think of the brain as a computer (cpu) that receives input from both eyes to simultaneously see in 3d and in focus.
Both eyes need to move in rhythm for this and also properly aligned therein. There are various ocular to neural causes for poor tracking that need to be investigated. ...Read more
Could be important: Depends a lot on the age. For the first few weeks of life, it is common for the eyes to appear misaligned and "not track well" together. After a couple months, most babies will fixate well and the eyes track well together. Mention the symptom to your pediatrician, and see if a referral to an eye md or pediatric ophthalmologist is advisable. ...Read more
Depends: Babies eyes do not need to completely track together until around nine months of age. If the eye exam is otherwise normal, and your child is under 9 months of age, I would follow. If one eye is constantly looking in one direction, that is different, and the child should be seen. ...Read more

No, your PT was: Checking your cranial nerves, which include those to all the muscles that move your eyes about in different directions.

Depends: Very young infants in the first week or so of life may not appear to focus or track well. Full term infants should look at faces and focus some on objectsfly 2 weeks old if they are the right distance from their eyes.

Questionable term: This is a common term used by optometrists who define this to indicate that somehow the eyes do not work well together. It is part of a workup they have devised to try and get the naive into programs of 'optometric visual therapy' which is an expensive exercise in generally futile but lucrative office examinations and "treatments" ...Read more
I have my first appointment with a neuro ophthalmologist tomorrow because of eye tracking issues. What will happen at this appointment?
Examination: A neuro-ophthalmologist is a specialist in the interaction between the nervous system and eye function. You will have a complete eye examination, an emphasis on eye motion, probably a field of vision test and if anything is positive you might have some radiological exams ordered. The testing is low stress, many consider fun, and you can have tracking dysfunction evaluated. Don't worry. ...Read more

10 week old sometimes avoids eye contact (particularly while being held). Other times, he coos, smiles n tracks well but mostly while lying down. Help?
Development varies: Slightly with each infant, and if he is making good eye contact while lying down, cooing and smiling, it sounds like he is on track. It may be that when he is upright, there are so many more sights to see that his eye contact with you is intermittent, compared to looking at you vs a boring ceiling when lying down. Keep talking and interacting with you baby, but share concerns at next check up. ...Read more

I have an elliptical left pupil and vision disturbance in both eyes. Can you tell me what is causing this?
Uveitis: Several of the conditions that you mention, lyme disease, herpes virus, toxo, can cause inflammation of the uveal tissue resulting in blurry vision and an elliptical or irregular shaped pupil.

I have very light 'constant' flickering (not flashes) in peripheral vision of both eyes (more in left) in dark since a week? Lattice review in 3 days.
Diplopia is worse this time last time it was only in left gaze thi time it is in both eyes. Last time it wss resolved. Is it resolve this time also.
Multiple causes: There are multiple causes for double vision, you do not mention a head injury or any other symptoms so I assume there are none. It is poss that you were born with a weak muscle n you are now unable to contro it. Other causes could be a diabetic or thryoid prob, then we get into a neurological eval which would be more extensive. See an ophthalmologist if it does not resolve. ...Read more

My eyes move right and left for about a second, and then refocus. Anyone know what the problem is with my eyes?
It doesn't matter if I close my left, my right eye, or open both eyes I always see double. What cousin the causes be?
Glasses?: Double vision from one eye could suggest a serious condition. However, given you age, and that both of your eyes each see double vision, it is most likely that your interpretation of double vision is blurred vision. You need to see your eye doctor for a complete eye exam and possibly new glasses. ...Read more
I test my eyes before 2 month. Before testing no for right eye (-3.75)and for left (-2.75). ITs increase by (-0.25)for both. M I need to take new glasses?
Personal preference: There is little difference between -3.75 and -4.00 diopters, and likewise between -2.75 and -3.00 diopters of correction. That means one's glasses should still work fine, but if wanting new glasses, one can have a pair made with the new prescription. Occasionally, a person might end up liking her old prescription better because she's grown used to her old glasses. ...Read more
I test my eyes before 2 month. Before testing no for right eye (-3.75)and for left (-2.75).aftr tst increase by (0.25)for both can I use my old glasses?
A diopter change: Of. 25 (plus or minus) from your current correction isn't likely to be noticeable. Glasses & contact lenses can be expensive. Unless you're currently notices eye strain, headaches or difficulty focusing, you probably can delay getting new glasses. Hope this helps. Dr. Anne. ...Read more

Red eye: Other possible causes of red eye include dry eye and subconjunctival hemorrhage. For dry eye, try using an otc eyedrop such as theratears, three time a day. For the subconj heme, use theratears and cold compresses for comfort (this should resolve in 2-4 weeks). If your symptoms persist, call your local ophthalmologist. ...Read more

I hit my left temple on Sunday night and yesterday and today I have had a headache all day and the light hurts my eyes/head bad and both temples hurt?
Posttraumatic injury: You are suffering from a post-traumatic headache because of the blow to your temple. You didn't give me enough information to know whether or not your incident could qualify as a concussion. That depends mainly upon just how dazed or unconscious you were. My best guess is that you didn't suffer a concussion but if you also get any nausea/vomiting or feel sleepy in any way you should get to an ER ...Read more
