Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
do you have any insight and information?
Great. I need help.
When you cover one eye, do you still see double?
I see triple out of the left eye, if the right eye is covered. With both eyes open i see a very blurry double.
When you cover the left eye, what do you see?
It is fairly clear.
What testing have you had done?
Retina examined by retina specialist and cornea by cornea specialist. both are ophthamologists.
And they have no explanation?
No. They are puzzled, as am I! I have thought about a neurological exam?
Have you had cataract surgery in that left eye?
I have had cataracts removed from both eyes but neither recently.
Hmm... certainly is a puzzle.
That is why I am looking to you for help!
Double vision coming from one eye is usually caused by either a glasses problem or cornea problem.
It is very unlikely to related to any neurologic problem.
In these situations, I would recheck if glasses would help.
Also, may order a test called corneal topography which checks for the regularity of the corneal surface.
Your corneal specialist may have already one this.
I already have glasses and have tried a prism in left eyeglass. and my cornea was examined today and no irregularities were reported.
The problem is usually limited to the eye itself and usually nothing neurologic. So that should reassure you somewhat.
The other possibility could be dry eyes.
In which case, you may consider artificial tears to see if the vision clears up.
Frankly, I am worried as well as to whether it might have any cause arising from ahlzheimers. Keep my eyes wet at least four times a day.
Unlikely from Alzheimers
I have not been diagnosed with alzheimers.
Do you have a followup appointment with one of your ophthalmologist?
No, as I am considering trying a clinic or some my full-scaled and comprehensive examinations. I am desperate.
That may be a good idea to get a 3rd opinion.
