A couple of months ago I started having some eye issues. I have a very high prescription and normally use soft contact lenses. It started off in my right eye, it got very irritated, red and red and dry so I completely stopped wearing contacts and switched over to my back up glasses.
I noticed my eye was looking off, maybe swollen or like lazy eye. the more I looked i thought it might even be popping out a bit. What really freaked me out was that I thought I had lost vision so I scheduled appointments with both my doctor and an ophthalmologist.
THe doctor checked my TSH, for thyroid problems as I have also been having issues with sore, scratchy and itchy feeling in throat for almost a whole year. TSH was normal.
The ophthalmologist confirmed that my prescription hasn't changed and determined that the blurred vision / double vision was a result from allergies and severe dry eye. I was prescribed ketotifen for the allergy and Systane over the counter for the dryness.
My primary care diagnosed my with blepharitis and prescribed erythromycin antibiotics for my eye. It has been about a month on these meds and I have not seen any results. I am still having double vision in my right eye (i think it's gotten worse) and it's still very dry in the mornings. it looks off to me, almost like its misaligned or crooked. I don't know what could have caused this, hoping to get recommendations as to where to look next or any tests that might provide insights?
