The Cause Of The Difference In The Focus Point On The Eye, The Direction Of Eye Sight Becomes Different In The Left Eye
Hello,. I am a 23 year old employee. I want a consultation. My eyes sometimes often seem to have different focal points on my left eye. But for the right eye it’s fine. I thought maybe it was because the eyes were tired but it kept happening as if the right eye wanted to look to the left while the left eye remained silent focusing forward / right like slow to respond. thank you
Thank you for the question.
The difference in the focus point on the eye, which makes eye sight different, is often a symptom of strabismus (squint). There are many causes of this condition, which is often due to a disruption in the brain's ability to coordinate the movement of the eyeball. It is also possible, squint caused by severe refractive eye disorders and not corrected properly, cataracts, disorders of the eye muscles and nerves, and so on.
Diagnosing strabismus requires an objective examination from a doctor or optometrist. Because, not infrequently, sensations such as having different focal points between the right and left eye are only subjective feelings. However, given the current outbreak of COVID-19, it is urged to postpone seeing a doctor first, unless there is an urgent condition.
Therefore, we suggest, just stay at home, don't overdo activities that tire your eyes (such as staring at gadgets or reading small print for too long, let alone driving long distances). If you have problems with eye refractive disorders (such as minus or cylindrical eyes), correct them using appropriate glasses or contact lenses. Later, after this outbreak has subsided, or if you feel very disturbed by your complaint, do not hesitate to see a doctor huh ..
I hope this helps.
