Thanks for the information.
The symptoms you are describing can be due to -
- increase in intraocular pressure of the eye or glaucoma
- muscle weakness of the eye
- requirement of glasses
- the cause of the symptoms can be totally unrelated to eye. The dizziness on moving the head can be due to a problem of the inner ear like Minear's disease or BPPV (micro stones in the semicircular canals of the ear which are responsible for maintaining balance).
- a side effect of the anti-depressants you are on.
Any problem in the eyes will be clear after you have been examined by your Ophthalologist. If your eye check up is normal, then you would need evaluation by an Otolaryngologist or ENT specialist to rule out any other problem.
