Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
This could be due to a systemic issue like MS. Or it could also be from a tear film/anterior segment issue, although this would not cause your eyes to point in different directions as witnessed by your friend.
I suggest that you have a complete eye exam by an ophthalmologist. Also, if your friend can take a photograph of your eyes not working together, or better yet, short movie of you trying to look in different directions while this is going on, that would be very helpful. In today's world where every cell phone can take high quality pictures and movies this shouldn't be too difficult to do.
Does this make sense to you?
Are you available to chat?
MS?? That would seem like an extreme end of the possible diagnosies -
I am otherwise healthy and on no medications, don't have any other symptoms. I have recently got reading glasses, and the technician who tested my eyes did not find any abnormalities. This was a month and a half ago and as the paralysis thing had only happened once or twice back then I didn't think to mention it to him
Are you still there?
This really needs more then a technician to work on it. An ophthalmologist is your best bet. Might it just be nothing? Perhaps, but I don't think you should continue to ignore it.
Hi. Did I loose you?
It looks like you have stepped away from your computer. I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
