Hi welcome to healthcare magic

As you are advised to wear spectacles, you need to follow it.. if not, then the power of the eyes will increase... do not neglect it...

I am a 48 year old woman, who has suffered from nistagmus since I was a child. I saw a specialist at first until I was 18, but then my eyesight had improved enough to see a local doc. Now that I am older, and just started a career with computors ,my eyesight has really started to give me problems, my eye doctor told me I just needed some readers, but I am not sure, because it seems like I have to strain to see anything without them. Can you give advice.

What's up, Doc?I am an 18 year old Male, 5' 11" and 160lbs with a history of: SSRI (Celexa-Citalopram) (for 4 years, discontinued spring '10), Adderall, Melatonin and 5-HTP supplementation (on-going). I am a daily marijuana and tobacco smoker and consume 2-3 alcoholic drinks every 3 weeks or so. I've noticed over the years : low body temperature, irregular heart beat, chronic low blood pressure, chronic hypersensitivity to cold & light, chest pains, pectus excavatum, depression anxiety & ADHD, scoliosis & bad pasture, myopia, abnormal muscle tone & adipose tissue, a protruding L5-S1 from a deadlifting injury in the spring of '10, mild concussion from winter of '10-'11, urethra pain, premature ejaculation, weak erection, "hot" urine post-ejaculation, lethargy apathy and cynicism, decreased desire for physical contact or communication, constipation & sour stomach, a dermoid cyst of the nose, dilated & thick veins, thirst never satisfied/dry mouth, overly thin OR overly thick stool, (the strangest one) overwhelming nausea felt in the spine and thoracic cavity when doing the Dip exercise, and abnormal endurance levels when concentrated. Quite the list, eh?Anyways, I have been having for the past 48 hours an abnormal sensation of pressure/bloating in my right lower quadrant and alternating cold and warm 'flushing' moments in the area of the RLQ between the crest of the hip bone and the midline-upper groin. I have also noticed two small, very faint blue-tinted bruises, circular in shape with circumferences of about 1 inch. My skin has felt cold and clammy in the past 12 hrs, and pressure applied to the area near the bruises produces occasionally a somewhat faint but still unsettling sensation of discomfort/pain. Preceding these symptoms by about 1 week was onset of weak erections, hard or too-soft stool, and increased awareness of floaters. What could be happening?

I am 22 yrs old male and i am a patient of severe myopia.I am also a suspect of glaucoma (pressure 20 -22). Few months back i received a head injury after which i started seeing floaters and hazy type appearances. I consulted few eye specialist and they found certain weak areas and lattices (no tear or scar) in my retina. They advised me to have a wait and watch policy.Since floaters occur if there is a tear in the retina which is not the case here. I want to know if this has anything to do with head injury? I had CT scan which was normal. Is there a chance that due to injury some nerve problem has occured which are causing these?

Could playing outside in birght sunlight the day before you break out with measles cause near sightness 5 years later? When I was 6 years old (1965) i had measles. I remember the sun being so bright while I was outside playing. The next day I broke out with measles. At age 12 or 13 I became nearsighted and have had to wear glasses ever since. Neither of my parents or sibling are near sighted. Neither of my children are near sighted either. An eye doctor told me that the near sighted gene is dominant over the normal vision gene.
