Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Doctor DanB : What kind of pain is this? Is it dull, burning, sharp, gritty, or aching? Is the vision changed? Are the eyes red and light sensitive?
Customer: His pupils constrict and dilate even with light. He says his eyes hurt when they move?
Doctor DanB : So if you shine a light in the pupils they dilate?
Customer: Eyes are not red
yes. but, they constrict almost as fast as they dilate. Both pupils do this at the same time.
He was complaining of headache this morning, but said since then, headache has gone away. Just eye pain and weird movement of pupils
Doctor DanB : The reaction of his pupils that you are describing sounds very normal for a young person; this is called hippus. If his eyes are not red, they are not light sensitive, and the vision is not changed significantly, I am not concerned for significant infection or inflammation. It's quite likely his eyes are dry or irritated and artificial tear use would help this. However, if he has been feeling ill lately or is getting ill, the eyes can be painful when they move just from having a viral illness. Does that make sense?
Yes. I will try the Visine. Thank you for your time and I will leave positive feed back!
