Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Can I assume the double vision goes away if you cover one eye?
If that is the case, does it go away regardless of which eye you cover?
Any significant headaches, changes in the height of either eyelid, differences in the pupil sizes?
I am available now.
Yes, it goes away if I cover one eye
no differences that I can see in pupil size;no headache; eyelid height the same
From my internet reading :-)... it changes with attitute (tilt or turn) of the head (incomitant?)
also, images are one above the other (vertical?)
also there is this small angle; a horizontal rail can look normal if my head is slightly looing down and slightly tilted sidaways to the lefe. In other positions a doublr rail appears. At its extrem right it almost joins; the moving to the left ift diverges at a small angle (less than 5 degres) but this divergence (angle) acan increase depending on position of the head. In this conditions driving ith both eyes open is impossible.
Three years ago I fell from a bike and banged my head on concrete step (brain trauma around 2+. i lost memory of event . I was in intensive care, just for observation. This was on the left temple. About three months ago, my (then) wife hit me one one eye. Xray and mri done , all normal. This was the right eye. Just hematoma; but for about a month i had this feeling that might right eye felt larger than the left.
Today nothing changed. Symptoms all the same. Must tell you that I have been under a real lot of stress this last year and even now; also spent time with tv and computer. Also three days ago i saw this 3d (Hugo Crouet) and I found the glasses and the whole experience not very agreeable (except fotr the movie..)-

In the meantime I have touched with the pulp finger tip very gendly the expernal sides of both eyes. Gentlest of pressure markedly improvers symptoms, even skew. But also, my eyes feel tender end swollen/soft to the touch. As you know, I am a cell biologist , know nothing of medicine. I was 2 years at NCI, NIH. So, you do not think this has anything to do with a minor episode of stroke. I got alarmed because several places reffered the need to go immediatly to get help if the onset was SUDDEN; and it was. Is an ophatlmologist or a neuroophtalmologist I should look lor?
Is this something that can go simply away? or else needs prolongued care, surgery, concern etc; any advise to lifestyle?
Thanks. I have just been very gently massaging the eye balls: 2-4pm on right eye; 8-10 on left eye and symptoms remarkably improve. I will follow your advice.
Ok, I will come back tomorrow to continue. Thank you !
However, as punched the acept button it informed that I was satisfied, and that was it. I hope that it is you who is correct and even if I "accept" i can come back until we finish.
