Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
I am happy to assist you tonight. What seems to be the problem?
I will be available throughout the evening to chat.
Yes, I am a practicing optometrist and specialize in all types of eye problems.
Are you noticing any double vision? If you were to move your eyes to make an H pattern, does the pain worsen when you look in one particular direction vs the others? How long has this been going on?
That is good news that you do not experience double vision. Is it the muscles of just one eye or both that seem to be affected? Seroquel is in the classification of medications that causes more side effects than almost any other. There are reports of Seroquel causing double vision and a difficulty in moving the eyes.
Have you been experiencing a head cold or flu like symptoms?
Have you seen an eye doctor (optometrist or ophthalmologist) for your concerns or is it the GP who has made the evaluations?
One eye or both affected?
I agree with the general doctor. Without examining you, everything you have described sounds like a side effect of your medication. It is likely inflammatory in nature. Especially being that both eyes are affected it would more likely be a systemic condition or a drug interaction. Ophthalmologists are often booked out a few weeks and this condition can likely wait until your scheduled appointment. From what you have described it does not sound like an urgent issue, but one that should be carefully examined.
I will be available to answer any follow-up questions you may have. Please don't forget to offer a positive rating once your question has been answered fully.Also, please note that the information here does not replace an examination and should be used as educational purposes only.
