For the past year I have had vision problems. Every time I go to the doctor my eyes change. I have went from near sighted to far sight to now 20/20.?

Many possibliities. Possibilities.Your prescription may be changing due to blood sugar changes (diabetes), development of cataract (unlikely at 23 years of age, astigmatism.Most likely you have always been far sighted, and your initial prescription was given for near sighted and you compensated easily due to young age, but now can not and they are having to take the power out of glasses.

Scratch on eye. Had spark fly in it. Got piece metal out. Doc gave me ointment. Chance i'll have vision problems or get worse?

See doctor again. I presume that the doc who prescribed the ointment for you did not find anything more than superficial damage. However if you are concerned, you should ask him to check your eyes again in a couple of weeks to make sure that your cornea is healing properly. Read more...
Probably okay. Depending on where the metal penetrated the corneal surface, vision usually is not affected after it's removed, topical medications such as antibiotics +\- steroids are used, and the epithelium is healed. If the metal is large and central on the cornea, vision may be decreased. If any significant degree of inflammation or possibly infection, vision may decrease. Use protective eye wear to prevent.

Depends. Corneal disruption (abrasion, foreign objects, scratches) usually heal with restoration of central vision back to normal. The except, except in massive injury, is when a scar forms in the exact center (the visual axis) This may cause long term visual blur or distortion. If your injury was away from the center, you should do well. Read more...

Had basic eye exam. Doc said one eye pokes out 1mm. No vision problems, but eye aches. Is it an orbital tumor? Will I go blind? Will it kill me? I'm 19

Whoa - slow down! . You don't have a fatal orbital tumor. The eye doctor would have been able to detect that on your exam and would have discussed this with you. No person I know is perfectly symmetric. So one eye is a bit more prominent - no big deal. Ask eye doctor how common he sees this, and when you should be seen in follow up, if at all. Don't be a hypochondriac. Chill out, and discuss with your doctor. . Read more...

My dad is losing his vision from one eye he went to the eye doctor and they didn't find any vision problems his blood sugar is normal what can it be?

Not sure. If your dad is losing vision and it continues to decline, I would take him to another ophthalmologist for a complete, dilated eye exam. It is a good idea to accompany him to hear what the doctor has to say as well as ask questions. There are many reasons for declining vision but it is impossible to diagnose without a complete exam..... Good Luck! Read more...
Second opinion. Never settle for "no explanation why" loss of vision. Seek a second opinion from an Ophthalmologist. Monocular vision loss could be from media problems, retinal problems, optic nerve problems, central nervous system problems, or other. A comprehensive examination with diagnostic testing should help to elucidate your fathers eye problem. . Read more...
Many causes. You dad needs to see an ophthalmologist for a complete exam. There are causes that may not be apparent to an optician or optometrist. A good examination should be able at least determine the area of the problem, such as cataract, retina or optic nerve disease. Read more...
