Welcome to Just Answer:

It is likely that you have eye muscle weakness that loose co-ordination or balance with strained eye from either tear film dysfunction or eye nerve damage from any other underlying conditions such as intermittent strabismus (tropia or phoria), nerve palsy (third or fourth), autoimmune inflammatory condition, thyroid eye problem, diabetic or silent stroke. I suggest that you follow-up with your eye doctor for closer evaluation, including re-check for prescription glasses. It may be necessary that a small prism addition to the glasses with correct this problem. In the meantime, I suggest that you use over the counter preservative free tear drop such as Refresh or Genteal tear drop 4 times daily.
