my doctor wants to ask about my 8 year old son, his right eye has double vision while his left eye is normal and he also often has headaches and even refuses to comb his hair….what do you think my child is sick with?

1 Answer:

Hi,


Double vision in one eye can be caused by:


astigmatism, where the shape of the corneal layer is irregular
dry eye symptoms
cataract

Side effects of medications such as anti-seizure or epilepsy medications, as well as after a head bump, can also cause temporary double vision.


Headaches have many causes, for example:

bad diet, late to eat
lack of rest
infection of the teeth or ears
infection of the scalp
brain tumor, which can be accompanied by symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, seizures

Try to keep your child living a healthy lifestyle

consume food regularly with a healthy and balanced menu
drink lots of water
have enough rest time
adjust the room lighting and good reading distance, so the eyes don't get tired quickly
avoid stress

If the symptoms persist, it is advisable to check the child to the doctor. So that a direct examination can be carried out to determine the condition of the eye, by knowing the history and symptoms experienced. If needed, the doctor may suggest to do additional examinations such as CT scan or MRI of the head. If there is an underlying medical cause, the doctor will immediately provide appropriate treatment.
