Usually normal: Most people notice the fibrils of collagen in the vitreous humor of the eye as floaters. Myodesopsia is normal and occurs because the fibrils cast a shadow on the retina. After a while, your brain ignores them, and they seem to disappear. They sometimes occur in certain eye diseases. See an eye doctor if you are concerned or if the floaters appear as many small dots. ...Read more

I feel I'm always behind a computer or my phone, I'm worried my eyes don't get much rest. How many hrs a day should we limit for using these devices?

Frequent rest: Now with the age of electronic and smart phones with spend ample time looking at the screen by using near vision. Two things that helps with computer fatigue: frequent blinking and breaks by looking far away. When we look close up we tend to contract eye muscle(strain) then by looking far away we relax our eye muscles. It's also good to walk around and do other things for staying healthy. ...Read more

What's causes lightheadedness feels like i'm off balance had a mri&ct 6mths ago & mra n dec 2012 i'm worried tired eyes?

Two groups....: Good answer by Dr. Loury. Basically, lightheadedness can be divided into two groups: 1) with solid physical findings; 2) without solid physical findings. The first group resolves mostly to ear or nervous system problems. The second group can be further evaluated as new and old. New means new problem>> many possibilities. Second group, chronic symptoms most commonly stress biology. ...Read more

Do you think I should be worried about my eyes changing color?

No: The color of the eye is due to the structure of the iris inside the eye. There is not way to change that color without causing severe damage to the eye and vision. If you want a different color, then talk with your ophthalmologist about colored contact lenses which can give you a new color or enhance your current color. ...Read more

I'm worried because my eyes are constantly watering, what do you suggest?

I'm worried because my eyes are constantly watering, what do you suggest?

Two causes..: First is that the tear drainage system may be blocked. The only way to fix this is to see you eye doctor. Second, the surface of your eye may be irritated. This sends a signal to the brain that your eye needs more tears. Putting lubricating eye drops in the eyes will slow down the watering. ...Read more

Loss of Appetite: Loss of appetite can be due to many reasons. If you are otherwise healthy, it could be due to anxiety, stress. If you are/were a smoker or if you have night sweats with weight loss, we like to be sure no other hidden issue like a tumor is present. See md to get a good physical.

Im worried about my eyes. One eye seems bigger than the other. I don't know if its because of lack of sleep or if its something serious?

See your doctor: Look at photos that were a year ago, and compare them. If your eyes were the same size then, and now they've change sizes, then you need to see your pcp, and eye doctor for evaluation. Your pcp can do a physical exam, and make sure that your thyroid is normal, and may need to order a thyroid panel. If your eyes haven't changed, and you just noticed it now, that may be less worrisome. Good catch! ...Read more
