Left eye crossing while sleeping, double vision, pain behind eyes. Suggestions?

Occasionally, my left eye crosses while I sleep. It has double vision for several seconds when I wake and it is sore for several days, like a pulled muscle. I felt a sharp pain behind the eye the evening before having the double vision. I have been to eye specialists and they can t replicate it, because it happens when I sleep. Any suggestions would be helpful. YYYY@YYYY

Thanks for posting your query..
You could be having a latent squint..
In that case patching the other eye will help to diagnose..
Ocular exercises can help you to relieve the pain..
Consult a squint specialist who can diagnose all types of squint..
Take care...

hi dear
thanks for choosing HCM

there are following few possibilities in your case

1.facultative or hidden hypermetropia for which you need to have refraction under full cycloplegia i.e.after putting atropine eye drops .do consult your refractionist with this idea

2.intermittent or latent squints can be menifested with some methods to fatigue the eye in the clinic .consult a good strabismologist.

both of above entities need correction.

good luck
