Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
My doctor rechecked my glasses prescription and said that it had changed. I don't know exactly how much change was present, but he said it was enough of a change that I would notice and that I was not imagining that my vision was worse. I am scheduled to see my eye doctor again 1 week from this Thursday. He said he did not want to do anything until he examined my eyes again to see if they had continued to change. He said both eyes had changed about the same amount. I am near sighted and my distance vision is such that I cannot read road signs especially at night and often written things on my television screen are difficult to read. When I first got my glasses I was able to see, but within the past week or two I have noticed that my vision has gotten poorer and I am not able to see as well as I did when I first got the glasses in August.
My doctor did not note any pupil abnormalities - or if he did, he did not mention it to me.
I quit smoking approximately 20 years ago. I have noticed the eyelid abnormalities for some time, but really did not think too much of it. When I look straight ahead I cannot see any white between the colored part and the eyelid. However, when I open my eyes as wide as I can, there is more white above the colored part of my eye in my left eye than in my right eye. I don't know if this is helpful, but I also have astigmatism and I also wear contact lenses, however I have not worn them in well over a month. My mother died in June and I still cry on a fairly daily basis. It is very difficult for me to wear the lense after I have been crying so I just have not worn them at all since about the middle or so of August and before that I wore them sporadically.
