What causes difficulty focusing my eyes?

What causes difficulty focusing my eyes?

Dryness: Most often, difficulty focusing from time to time is due to dryness, which causes changes in the smoothness of the front of the eye. On the other hand, if you are over 40, and the difficulty is with reading, then it is presbyopia, an aging change.

My son is 22 months old & has a slightly unfocused lazy eye.What can I do? I tried patching for 3 weeks but it didn't make a difference .

Pediatric eye doc: I hope your son is under the care of pediatric ophthalmologist. There are set criteria and procedures for patching to help resolve strabismus in babies. Unsupervised patching can actually produce poor vision in the "good" eye. Three weeks is not a sufficient time to see a substantial change. You should talk to your doctor about the time frame where you will see a change and his expectations. ...Read more

I'm 7 months pregnant. I was sitting down when suddenly, the vision in my eye got blurry and unfocused. I also felt likei was going blind. It went away in seconds. What could bethe reason?

Needs evaluation.: A transient episode involving visual loss in one eye could represent amaurosis fugax, caused by a temporary loss of blood flow to the retina; you are quite young for it to result from plaque in your carotid artery on that side. The next place to look for a source of an embolism would be the heart; an echocardiogram could help. A cardiologist, an ophthalmologist and a neurologist could solve it. ...Read more

I have daily headaches, eye pain. And I have difficulty focusing when reading - what can I do?

I have daily headaches, eye pain. And I have difficulty focusing when reading - what can I do?

Start with eye exam: Your symptoms suggest perhaps you're having visual changes, although it may be that the headaches are primary, since pain of any kind makes life in general more difficult. Start by ruling out a physical explanation--eye exam, general physical. If those are normal, consider stress, anxiety, & depression, all of which can produce these kinds of physical symptoms and are highly treatable. ...Read more
