Lazy eye, eyelids have puffy look, feeling of occasional cross vision, floaters in vision. Any ideas?

20 years old female and my eyes have been different now for two months. At first it was just my left eye that out of no where felt odd. It suddenly became a lazy eye by that I mean i have more visible white in my eye and when I look a bit to the left my left eyes goes a bit higher and off to the side more. But now both of my eyelids have changed... First my left one was looking puffy but now they both have like a layer or extra skin on top of my eyelid. When I look down you can see the top parts of my eyeballs showing through my eyelid over the lower crease so it looks like i have two eyelids or a line across my eyelids. It s very strange and nothing I ve ever seen before. I had an eye exam and was prescribed prism glasses for possible eye strain but I know my problem is not with my vision . My eyes sometimes do feel like crossing quite often now and I do see a bit more floaters than I used to. So my question really is does any doctor have any idea what could be wrong? Its like my eyes have gotten bigger and more pronounced.

hi there, First of all I would like to know whether you are suffering from any other symptoms like weight gain or wt loss, feeling of hot and cold excessively, any tremors or any palpitation? Your puffy eyes along with lazy eye syndrome is more suggestive to me of thyroid imbalance and the test you need to get done is a thyroid profile consisting of FreeT3 and T4 levels, TSH levels, THRH antibodiies etc. If all of these are within the normal range then you may need to get your renal profile done to rule out any renal pathology. Get yourself evaluated by a general physician and get your tests done according to his advice. It may not be only a localized eye problem but some systemic disease leading to these manifestation. Take care.
