After an incident involving my head being squeezed four months ago, I have been experiencing disturbed vision and pain in one eye. I have had an MRI scan and several opthamologists have looked at my eye, who say they cannot see a problem. Three opticians
have done a cover test and on each occasion, a mild to moderate "slip" has been reported on the left eye, one optician telling me that the left eye sits higher than the right. When I look at a mid-to distant object first with my right eye and then the left, the object appears higher up when looking with my left eye. Also, when I relax my eyes, and let them drift into diplopia
, the left image is always higher than the right one. Every day I experience headaches - which I assume to be eye strain fusing the images? - and an aching/pulling feeling in my left eye only. Could this be caused by the "slip"? Would a prism be able to correct this? Would it be base down or base up? Also, can I get prism contact lenses
, as I do not like wearing glasses
. When I got a stronger glasses prescription recently, the pulling feeling in my left eye was too uncomfortable to tolerate for the whole day.
I would be grateful for your advice. Thank you.
