How To Deal With Nearsightedness In People With Crossed Eyes?
At night, my eyes have 2-sided vision (crossed) and wear glasses, I use my left eye more often than my right so that it makes my right eye rise quickly. Is there a solution to slow it down?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Squint or strabismus is a condition in which the two eyeballs are not parallel and do not look at the same point. This condition occurs because of a disturbance in the muscles that move the eyeball, either because of the nerves or muscle strength, so that the movements are out of sync. In this condition, one eye can look up, down, or to the side while the other eye is normal, and is usually more focused.
Among the possible causes of crossed eyes in a person are:
Eye injuries Head injury High blood sugar levels Certain genetic or hereditary conditions Nearsightedness Nearsightedness Neurological disorders such as Guillain-Barre syndrome
If not treated promptly, crossed eyes will stop working and will enter lazy eyes (amblyopia). In the lazy eye, the brain will gradually ignore the image that appears from the 'problem' eye because the out of sync interferes with vision, causing the sight coming from this eye to gradually deteriorate. This condition is what you are likely experiencing.
The way to handle it, is to overcome the cause. If it is caused by crossed eyes, then cross eye treatment is what is needed. Can use special glasses, use eye patches on healthy eyes to force the lazy eye to work, eye muscle injections, to surgery. Our advice is that you should discuss further with your ophthalmologist about these options, because you also need a direct examination to find out the degree of severity and which treatment is most appropriate for you.
Meanwhile, because there are not many things you can do independently, immediately taking the time to see a doctor is the best option before complications occur. Avoid forcing eye work by being in a room with inappropriate lighting, adjusting the brightness of cellphone and laptop screens, and resting your eyes after 2 hours of use. So, hopefully it answers your question.
