Customer Question

Dear Dr.
I have been experiencing the following symptoms:
-blurred vision
-double vision
only on the left eye. These symptoms last typically for 2-3 days, then go away. They return some time after. I have been using the computer for 7-9 hours a day over the last 4 years. I have had 3 conjuntivitis in the last 6 months. I also experience the following symptoms, but less often:
-feeling of heaviness in the eye
-eye redness, mainly upon waking up, but also on the end of the day
Can you tell me what is the problem and what are the measures to take?
Best regards,
Hugo Silva
