User :   Hi,I am a little concerned with my left eye. In the last 6m-1yr it is becoming smaller, a little red, slight burning feeling, watering when lying down reading ect & sensitive to the sun & wind (waters). 4-5yr ago I had cervical cancer, no radiation & all clear now. I do have darkish circles under my eyes. Can you help determine what it could be?
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   let me read
Doctor :   do you have any problem with vision ?
User :   slightly
Doctor :   is it with both the eyes or with one eye ?
User :   Just seems the one eye isn't so clear but not a real noticable difference
User :   A few months ago I got out of bed to go to the toilet & could not see out of that eye at all, it only lasted for about 30 seconds though
Doctor :   when does you see the eye start watering is it in the morning hours or in the afternoon and evening hours ?
User :   mainly evening
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   do you have heaviness feeling in that eye ?
User :   no
Doctor :   when you get up in the morning do the eye lids are sticky ?
User :   no
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   you need to get the refractory testing of the eye
User :   what is that
Doctor :   the eye vision testings for far and near vision
User :   I really dont think its that
Doctor :   you need to get it checked before you assume the things
Doctor :   it is eye strain
User :   in only 1 eye?
Doctor :   the muscles of the eye getting strained
Doctor :   yes refractory error does have different in different eye
User :   in only 1 eye?
User :   ok
User :   Could it be anything else?
Doctor :   to rule out the other things you need to have an slit lamp examination of the eye
User :   ok this hasn't really been that helpful, I could have spoke to a freind who could have told me to get eye tests done
Doctor :   ok
