Welcome to Just Answer:
It is likely that your son experienced a change in vision in the right and pain in the left eye due to a transient spike in eye pressure (acute ocular hypertension
). This can happen if eye is strained, transient viral infection or sinus problem, especially in a person at risk for glaucoma
(eye problem with nerve changes and/or blockade of eye fluid drainage).
It is important that he follow-up with his eye doctor for complete eye examination - to check his eyes pressure, optic nerve inside the eye and exclude any retinal problem. In addition, his doctor should consider evaluation with carotid doppler ultrasound
, ECG and echocardiography to exclude any related cardiovascular event.
In the meantime, in communication with his doctor, over the counter Zaditor eye drop
twice daily will help soothe his eye and quiet any background inflammation.
