Hello, my name is Dylan and I'm 16.
Ever since I was little, I had been wearing glasses to correct my accommodative esotropia where my left eye would turn inwards when I tried to focus on something close to me. 5 or so years ago the opticians told me that I no longer needed glasses and I'd only had minor problems since then.
But recently I've noticed that the symptoms are coming back. Not as often as when I was little, but when I have been reading something or focusing on something for a while, I will get a weird (not painful) sensation in my eyes and I experience double vision which only goes away if I either cover my left eye or "unfocus", which is more relaxing for my eyes but when it happens everything is really blurry and I can't read anything. My eyes will often unfocus on their own when I relax and although I can focus when this happens I have to try really hard and it puts a strain on my eyes.
Is this normal for people who have outgrown their accommodative esotropia? Or is mine just coming back?
