Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

The narcotics could, theoretically, cause nystagmus as could overdosage of the clonezepam.

Dr. Rick :

I have no idea what is in hormone treatment pellets.....

Dr. Rick :

Pink eye, severe dry eyes and tear drops would not cause this.

Dr. Rick :

If you are having nystagmus I suggest you have a complete eye exam by an ophthalmologist.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?
