After my stroke I had doubled vision it has gotten better and in some ways worse can my eyes be corrected through mono glass or bi folcals?
Yes: Such an event is the result of a retinal artery occlusion and the result is loss of vision in the effected eye. As in a brain stroke, time is of the essence as far as initiation of treatment is concerned. Even with early treatment, only 20-30% of cases will retain useful vision in the eye. ...Read more
Not sure what u mean: I am not sure what you mean when you say "monoculars". I assume you mean single glass lenses instead of bifocals. If that's what you mean, then there is no answer to your question. The answer is "whatever makes you more comfortable and happy". Some monocular patients love bifocals, and some don't. It's a personal preference only you can answer. ...Read more

Returned from congo brazza to rsa, my eft eye is not syncronised with right eye. Images split when looking nown right. Scan: no stroke/tumors.?
Eye movers: Not sure what rsa means but your eye problem is most likely a disorder in which means an eye muscle in one eye is not functioning well, possibly because a nerve to that muscle malfunctions. Double vision on downgaze can be seen in nerve damage near the brainstem from a variety of causes but because the nerve involved is so small, even powerful scanners may be unable to detect them. See eye doc 1st. ...Read more

Complex,: Complex, involuntary movements of the face and tongue generally fall under the heading of "dyskinesia", which is not a diagnosis. Dyskinesia can be a feature of a number of different conditions, including parkinson's disease, or as the result of history of treatment with prescriptoin medications that include antipsychotics (medications given for treatment of conditions like schizophrenia) and antiemetics (medications given for nausea), or even at the result of intoxication with recreational drugs (such as methamphetamine). ...Read more

65 female with history of stroke has severe narrowing on right carotid has passed out and fallen eye sight blurry should stents be done?
Carotid narrowing: If stroke affected right brain and carotid narrowed over 50% then endarterectomy (CEA) is option. CEA has lower stroke rate than stent but higher risk of other problems. One option for you is to go to a provider that does both CEA and carotid stents. Decreased vision and falling often not related to carotid stenosis so thorough cardiac & neuro evaluation necessary before intervention. ...Read more
If you already have a bad eye (damaged from optic nerve stroke and glaucoma) and your eyes still hurt, how can you make the pain go away?
See your doctor...: Optic nerve ischemia (stroke) typically doesn't present with pain, nor does glaucoma. Optic neuritis or inflammatory conditions involving the optic nerve may warrant urgent treatment, particularly if you are experiencing vision changes. If your symptoms are unilateral and acute, I would call your ophthalmologist tonight. ...Read more

Floaters: Floaters are thickenings in the vitreous jelly inside the eye. They are common with age, myopia, inflammation, trauma, and other issues. They are benign and do not damage your vision. Rarely, they can cause retinal tears which may require laser treatment. Otherwise, no treatment is needed. In very rare cases, the floaters can become dense enough to block vision and may need surgical removal. ...Read more
