Do i need to fix my lazy eye? When i don't wear my glasses (pretty often), my lazy eye drifts sometimes and i get double vision. Is there something i need to do about this?

Things to ponder: When you don't wear your glasses & you start having double vision, your brain doesn't like it. Keep it up and your brain can decide to turn off the eye causing the double vision. If it happens often enough you can loose some vision permanently. Work with your eye doc to keep your eyes in the best shape possible. Wear your glasses or get surgery. What you are doing now could cause long term harm. ...Read more

How old are you now?: Even if surgery and glasses were successful when you were young, it is not uncommon for there to be some changes as you get older, especially if you stopped using your corrective lenses. Muscle exercises are not a great long-term solution. Either glasses, contacts, muscle surgery or a combination of these will be the most successful. I suggest you see your eye doctor to go over your options. ...Read more

Can I have eyelid surgery if I have glaucoma? My eyelids are puffy and sag, and sometimes they droop into my field of vision. I want to have this corrected with eyelid surgery, but I have glaucoma. Can i still get the surgery or are there any other option

Can I have eyelid surgery if I have glaucoma? My eyelids are puffy and sag, and sometimes they droop into my field of vision. I want to have this corrected with eyelid surgery, but I have glaucoma. Can i still get the surgery or are there any other option

Yes. : Glaucoma by itself does not preclude you from getting upper or lower blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). However, if you have had a trabeculectomy or shunt procedure for glaucoma, then the surgeon should be more judicious in recommending upper eyelid surgery and be more conservative with skin excision. Exposure of the filtering bleb from excessive skin excision can lead to serious complications. ...Read more

What to do if I have really bad eyesight! if i don't get lasik eye surgery will that increase my chances of eye disease?

LASIK and kids: I am a little confused by your question. Lasik just works to reduce or eliminate your need for glasses. However, it does not alter the chance for developing an eye disease such as cataracts or macular degeneration. So, you should not feel pressure to get lasik. Of course, lasik works well to allow you to see nicely without contact lenses or glasses. ...Read more
