Hello Dr.

I noticed the turn in the eyes is very severe/conspicuous now whenever the glasses are off compared to the turn before the glasses.

I am an Eye doctor, I discovered through clinical experience that most Patients don't really know about some basic things and problems affecting the eyesn and these has led to simple eye problems being seen as complicated and frightening to most patients and they don't really know how to go about it. There are some eye problems that are hereditary,which requires normal routine eye examinations but due to ignorance most patients tend to lose their sight to eye problems that could have been prevented. I want to use this opportunity to enlighten us and provide solutions to problems affecting the eyes,in line with WHO Vision 2020-Right to sight for all, so all questions concerning the eyes are welcomed
good evening doc,I can't see under light,and was given glasses for it, since 2017,so anytime I wake up from sleep or am about to sleep,my eyes are always teary,pls advise me.

Good morning Dr.
I was diagnosed with having 'assisted, normal tension' glaucoma in 2017 (my dad battled glaucoma for some years and was operated upon about 10 years ago).
I've been on and off Alphagan 0.02% eye drop from time to time and I also supplement with yeast tablets and cod liver oil capsules.
Even with all of these, my eyes get overly strained and painful sometimes.
Please what can I do? Should I switch to a different eye drop? Should I add something new?

you eye strain and pain may not be attributed to the glaucoma. I highly suspect the cause to be an uncorrected refractive error. I'll advise you visit the eye clinic for an exam

ok, just visit an eye clinic so they examine you as there are quite a number of things that could make you experience these symptoms. If you live in Lagos you could visit Arrive alive diagnostics as i learnt their eye clinic is offering free eye tests this period but would be ending by next week wednesday . u could check up the address on google and see if it's close to you

This is very very true doctor. I was diagnosed of having refractive error in the year 2008. I was also given a photochromic lens to be using. But i stopped using it after a few months cause it usually leaves me with headache anytime I wear it. Please what can I do? What exactly cause refractive error please?

u probably had headaches then because the lense prescription wasnt the right one for your eyes. You'll be needing to do a new eye examination and get new pairs of glasses
