Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
When you say that your eyelid appears droopy, does it seem to be due to the black eye/swelling or does your eye lid appear not to be functioning properly?
Do you have any medical problems or take any medication?
I see that you are offline. 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..... :)
I take synthroid & detrol. No aspirin. I am healthy - jog 3x week.
Both eyelids are droppy
Only one eye is bruised - the left one - both are drooping - the right more - I can close my eyes completely
My vision is not blocked
I couldn't save the picture as you stated - but I saved & sent you in the reply box - hope you got it.
I have to say that you missed the boat on my eye - the dropping eye was the biggest problem. I have seen an opthalmologist & a neurologist. Both seem to think that i have occular myathenia gravis - so off for more tests. I guess I didn't ask more questions related to the droopy eye.
Thanks for checking in again.
I certainly understand that you were limited by just my words and picture of my eye. The hemorrhage is clearing up.
The ophthalmologist performed an ice test on the eye - he said it was a primitive test for occular MG - my eyelid did respond. The neurologist felt by exam that it seems that I do have occular MG.
I had blood work yesterday - to be followed by CT scans.
I guess the good thing is that the black eye made me look more closely at my eyes.
Will keep you posted.
The ophthalmologist said it was the first time he had used it and it was positive. I could definitely see the difference.
Thanks! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
I am not sure if you were asking about my eyes again - I don't see a message - so maybe I am missing something. FYI- I don't have any of the results back - the eyes remain the same.
Thanks for responding - I live in Michigan - so not much rooting for the Lions!
