Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Was the near vision in both eyes affected?
Has he required reading glasses in the past for near vision?
In the eye that is "set" for near vision, does he have glasses that allow him to see clearly in the distance with that eye? If so, with those glasses on, is his distance vision also blurry at this time?
We have been experiencing problems with the chat system for the last few days. Our engineers are working on it. However, 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..... :)
Yes. He thinks both eyes, which seemed to work together before, are not working well now for close vision. Has not used glasses in past for near vision. He says he can well at distance with both eyes, wearing his glasses. If he closes right eye, he doesn't see as well for distance. If he closes left eye, he sees better at distance. For close-up, he sees better out of left eye. He thinks left eye is dominant for close-up, but now he is having trouble reading newpaper at all.
