We went to see a eye specialist for my 9 month old daughter and she said that she has some degree of near sightedness. Dr said that she does not need any glasses right now but she would like to follow up with her. I am concerned that my little girl has to wear glasses in case her problem grows. here some questions i have 1) is this common problem 2) is there anything that we can do that help my daughter eye sight.
I am a 25 year old male that is terrified for his eyes. I have been wearing glasses since I was 9 years old, and my vision had been worsening every year. However, it had been worsening slower, making me think that my myopia had finally begun to stabilize. My last Rx was back in Dec 2016 after 2 years of a stable prescription, where the optometrist noted the following: OD -7.50 OS -7.75 Cylinder -0.75 to OD -7.75 OS -8.25 Cylinder -0.75 I have been on Accutane 40 mg per day for the past 4 months, and felt my eyesight worsening, so I went to go get it checked by my optometrist last week. Within 6 months of my last Rx, my eyesight had worsened to: OD -8.00 (worse by -0.25) OS -9.00 (worse by -0.75) Cylinder -0.75 My optometrist did a dilated slit lamp dilation on me, and told me that both my retina and macula are very healthy. I have stopped Accutane about 3 days ago, and have an appointment with an ophthalmologist in a week for a more comprehensive exam. I should note that I have noticed that even though I am myopic in both eyes, I ve noticed that looking at close objects with my left eye (with glasses) has become more clear than my right (perhaps onset of hyperopia in my right eye?) I do have some bad habits, such as: reading my phone in the dark with it glued to my face for hours. Frequent time spent on the computer for work. Since then, I ve been trying to mediate the damage to my eyes, including warm compresses, fish oil supplements, and minimizing the time spent on my phone. Should I be concerned? I had really hoped my prescription would have stabilized by now, and I m frankly terrified by this sudden increase. My optometrist told me not to worry since her own vision is worse (-10.00 in both eyes, mid-30s), and that she has worked with patients with much worse eyesight, but I can t help but be worried because this increase happened in such a small time frame, especially during a period where most people seem to have stabilized.
My seven year old has been on keppra for one full month now, and she has been complaining of not being able to see the writing on the white board at school. We had her vision tested before she started school in august and the optometrist said she may develop problems up close but that should be it. Could the keppra be effecting her vision? Thank you Tyne
i have just returned from visiting my 22 year old daughter, who works on a cruise ship. she has had red eye complaints for about 4 months, She wears contact lenses, and changes them regularly. She also has had about 2 months of blood in and around her stools, with white spots like mozzarella cheese. she refuses to see a ship doctor and wants to wait for 2 months before she comes home. Could this be serious?
My little boy aged 5 has fallen at school and bumped his head on concrete. This happened 8 days ago we have been to A&E and had him checked fully with eye tests at the eye hospital which are all clear. He still complains of blurred vision, shapes in his eyes and they are light sensitive what should we do?
Hello, I m live in Bosnia and Herzegovina ( you may not know where it is ) and I have a boy age 4 years and 5 months. My doctor specialists in ophthalmology said that he has amblyopia on the right eye. His sight is approximately 25% of the normal. She ( the doctor ) also said that the condition is incurable. Apparently the colour of the eye nerve is lighter than normal. Diagnosis: Amblyopia O.D. H50.0 Entropy OS H52.0. Please tell me is there any hope for my child and his sight on the right eye. My e mail is YYYY@YYYY
Off late, i am suffering from dryness, itching and uneasiness in left eye predominantly. Please suggest ways to relax eyes with medication or exercises. Please suggest eye drops which can be used with contact lens and without contact lens
