Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology and retina surgery experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
How old are you?
How long has this been going on?
Is your vision blurred?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
Thank you for that additional information.
It sounds like might have a palsy (weakness) of one of your eye muscles. In many cases the muscle involved in the lateral rectus/6th cranial nerve.
This could be secondary to your recent illness.
So. What should you do?
You need to be evaluated by an ophthalmologist (Eye MD) to pinpoint what is going on. Going to an optometrist (OD) or other medical doctor is of no value in getting to the bottom of this issue....
Make sense to you?
