My left eye has been lazy since birth. It turns out, as far as I am aware. When I was two I was given glasses. They then decided that my eyesight didnt require glasses and I havent had glasses since.
I did have to wear an eye patch on my right eye now and again but that was before I was school age and havent since. My mum says she was given the choice of whether I should have an op or not and she chose not.
Thing is now I think my right eye is taking all the strain and my left eye is getting worse. If I cover my right eye my left is fuzzy. But my eye sight is fine otherwise. I get headaches now and again.
Recentlly my left eye has been irritating. Cant really describe it. Its not painful, but its annoying. Especially if I am tired. As if its not working properly.
I am going to book an eye test. But has anyone else had this? What treatment am I likely to expect, if any? Is this just a part of life now and nothing will be done as its not greatly affecting me?
Lazy eye from birth, squint, no operation etc although I have always needed glasses I haven't necessarily worn then for various reasons.
I am now 25 and have just had an eye test in the last 2 Weeks and it turns out my right eye had given up so very little if any 'vision' left but because I've never had much use of it anyway I never noticed, I have to wear my glasses all day ecru day now as so much strain has been put on my left eye its became irritated and painful resulting in sore heads.
I do however only have a lense on my left side and the right is just , I was asked if I would like contacts and wad told I'd have the bonus that they'd cost half add much as I would only need 1 at a time
Im not sure about contacts either fir that reason!
I really didn't find it so bad after a day our 2 with my glasses but my main advice would be to get a pair that you really like and take someone who will give you a truthful opinion whether they sit you or nit because generally you are going to be wearing then fur around 2 years.
I have exactly the same problem and next to no 'vision' in one eye.
It was only a couple of years ago, despite numerous eye tests -I'm in my mid 40's, that I found an optician that could actually prescribe the correct lenses for me. Don't be fobbed off as I was by poor patient care at your optician.
I can now read clearly for the first time in years. It is wonderful. I still get tired eyes and the odd head ache after looking at screens for too long, but I can see text properly which is fabulous.
