I have a 22 month old daughter with lazy eye. Most often her left eye goes out to the side, but occasionally her right eye will go out and up a bit. I took her to a local eye doctor who gave me very little information and said because she is to young to test her vision she cant be treated right now. Can she be treated at this age and if so what are the treatments?
Hi, Im 22 years old and have been suffering now for 6 years. I have a constant pressure behind my left eye and it feels as though someones pressing their finger into the crease of my eyelid. Also, my right eye has begun drooping- and i cannot seem to raise my right brow as easily. I have severe allergies and due to this its caused ALL my eyelashes to fall out. And when they grow in they grow in crooked and short- and eventually fall out too. I have not had them for over 2 years- and have been getting bumps that puss and itch when they do try to grow back in. I have noticed a loss in vision as well as dramatic drooping in right eye when i get tired or drink. Right now it feels as though my right side on my face is sagging downwards- and my eye appears smaller than the other eye- which is completely fine. I think astigmatism may be possible but I m not sure as all my doctor did to help the eyelash problem was prescribe latisse- which i refuse to take as i dont think thatll solve my problems. What is happening to me? Am i growing a tumour or could it be cancer? Why do i have sudden pressure changes and ptosis in one eye. It looks as though my eye is changing shapes. I have gotten used to the fact that i have no eyelashes and that they are CONSTANTLY itching and bothering me causing me to rub my eyes- could this be the cause of my lazy eye or the drooping of the lid? I sometimes get very swollen large lids- that hurt a lot. But hot compresses seem to bring them down. My eyes are destroying my life, my self confidence, and the way i act at work and in public. I am truly embarresed that my eyes are eyelashless and seemingly crooked.
