Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I was diagnosed with short-sightedness more than five years back. A year before, I noticed my left eye started to cross outward, occasionally. When looking to the right side (medially), it crosses up a little. When looking upward, it partially shifts to the left. And today, it started to cross few degrees to the left side while looking directly forward. Four years ago, I hit my eye with a doorknob that resulted in pain for a few days, and there was a discoloration in the eye. Could that be a possible reason? The left eye usually dries faster and burns when I use it while closing the right one. I have no idea if that is a reason too? I cannot reduce my working hours on screen, and I do not know what to do because it is becoming more noticeable.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

This may be due to a change in spectacle power or a problem in the retina. The examination has to be done to know what it is. The usage of computers, smartphones causes dry eyes due to decreased blink rate. Take frequent breaks. Look at far objects as eyes are strained due to looking at close objects for a long time. Use Refresh Liquigel eye drops (Carboxymethylcellulose) three times a day and anti-glare glasses. Consult an ophthalmologist for examination.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
