The white of left eye is not firm. The vision is less also. Suggestions?

Hi, I m 15 and my right eye sees better than my left. This may have no relation to my problem, but I thought I d state it just in case. I noticed recently that when I touch the white of my left eye, it is not firm, and moves with my touch. I am terrified at what is going on with my eye and would really like some answers. Thanks in advance

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Dear Emma,Hi ,looking at your condition that you are seeing better in your rt eye as compared to lt eye,your rt eye is a dominat eye and the left eye is a nondominant or lazy eye.Your are having amblyopia in your lt eye since it has become lazy and you have realized now.If your white part of left eye is not firm as compared to your rt eye it is hypotony of that eye where the IOP of the eye is low and eye becomes soft.It can happen due to retinal detachment,choroidals,post trauma,post infection ciliary shut down,uveitis etc.I would advise you to go to an ophthalmologist who can do a complete evaluation of your eye and decide the further management....TC ..Dr Ajay Shankar Kar

Welcome to HCM,
It seems that you are having Refraction of error.on left ear.
The feeling you have got might not have any significance.
But to make this clear,take advice of ophthalmologist as you have to consult for refraction of error.
Ok and bye.
