Dominic Then I saw another eye specialist (very reputational, expensive and hard to get a consulation with) who completely denied all the previous diagnosis
I understand your despair but this should be a warning when you think about eye surgery. I know nothing about strabismus surgery but I have experience with other forms of "minor" surgery. For instance, I had seven operations at my toes due to ingrown nails. They caused permanent damage and turned out to be completely unnecessary. I would consult a million specialists before going down that way…
Dominic I bought a cheap pair of glasses correcting my astigmatism (-0,25 on left and -0,5 on right eye)
I have -0.25 astigmatism in my left eye. I tried glasses and letters appeared neater and bolder, but that did not make any difference in terms of eyestrain / neck pain. Most doctors won't give you a prescription for that condition.
xelaos Do you have some issues with you jaw?
I have had jaw manipulations several times but I did not notice any improvement of my eye condition. I also started wearing a mouth guard three years ago because I was grinding my teeth at night. That is hopefully going to be helpful in the long run to preserve my teeth, but I never observed any correlation with my eye problems.
ryans olks who also had all "our" symptoms gone with neck chiropractic care.
I have seen chiropractors and osteopaths for twenty years. No progress as to eyestrain. Recently I have moved away from chiropractors and whenever I have a problem I see a physiotherapist or an osteopath.
Dominic Hi! Yes, my problems also started when I bought a new laptop - LG Gram 17.
How long ago was this? Do you mean that before buying that laptop you had zero issues?!?!?
Dominic When the first two are more undestandable as they are close to brain and eyes, getting warm palms and feet is quite a mystery.
I gave in using prismatic lenses after three days. I had pain everywhere. It started with my neck, then my arms - both biceps and triceps, then elbows and wrists, and it finally propagated down to my ankles. On my last day I also developed a piercing headache on the top of my left eye and eye burning which I never had before. It took me 8-9 days without glasses to recover decent vision at near. This is a fresh story. Last week.
Dominic I had a consultation with an oral surgeon as I cosindered my wisdom teeth as potential culprit, but he ruled it out.
I got rid of my wisdom teeth ten years ago. No change in my eye sensitivity afterwards, and my issues have got worse and worse for the past four years.
Mrak0020 Whatever damage eyes are taking, it can be accumulated. The best thing to do is avoid accumulation by all costs. Probably it is not a significant damage and can easily be healed with time. More damage you take, more time you need.
I agree with these statements. Now I am using my laptop at native resolution (first time ever on any computer) and the latest version of Windows 10 and I am doing better than months ago. I have no idea what I did to improve. I am a very bad sleeper and never found a correlation between eyestrain and lack of sleep, but perhaps adding several hours of sleep for some weeks has helped?
Mrak0020 One of my eyes was hit by a laser
I had a laser accident too twenty years ago. Those days I was not using screens but studying on paper became really problematic as the hit eye would pour tears and hurt all the time. After a few days I went to an eye doctor who confirmed there was a scar in my left eye, but told me it was superficial and would most likely heal on its own. He prescribed eye drops and glasses for myopia. The eye got better and the glasses quickly began giving me headaches. The next doctor I saw told me not to wear glasses anymore as they were an over-prescription. I guess, if you have a trauma you need to give time to the eyes to heal.
