Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
I can understand why your GP wanted you go back to your optician....this is really not something GPs deal with.
In any event, there are a few possible causes of your symptoms.
Hi. Welcome to chat.
Hi Ive never done this before!
Well you just did! Good job!
Greetings from Wisconsin USA
What do you think it might be? Hi
The most likely cause of your symptoms is a weakness in one of the muscles that move your eyes. Do you have any medical problems or take any medicine?
If your GP would refer you I'd feel better if you saw an ophthalmologist, perhaps your surgeon, for this issue. They are better trained then an optician/optometrist to get to the root of this problem
I have high blood pressure which I take medication for, after 20 years it still tends to be raised. I have recently come off HRT after 15 months and am going through the usual horrors.
high blood pressure is a very common cause of transient weakness of an eye muscle. Usually, there is no treatment indicated and it resolves itself over the course of a few months.
it is actually the nerve that powers the muscle, rather then the muscle itself, that is affected.
I have never had any problems with my eyes functioning before my surgery, could it be a result of that?
Your not having a stroke and, although everyone worries about it, you don't have a brain tumor :)
My pleasure. Have a great day.
