" Squishy Eye "
As bad as I feel for you and your eye problem, I'M SO GLAD I FOUND SOMEONE ELSE WITH THE SAME PROBLEM I HAVE !!

It started off as horrible headaches and now eye problems with me having this same squishy eye problem in my left eye that is driving me insane.

I've been to the Dr 10 times about this 5 different Dr's and the results have always been the same with no answer to what it is....

I've have tear ducts plugged ( upper and lower ) prescribed new nasonex nose spray cat scans  tear ducts flushed....Ive been through hell with this and still no answers to what it is.

Its only in my left eye and not only does it make a squishy noise but also when breathing is it feels like my eye is being sucked though my tear duct...it feels like air is somehow getting through there while breathing in and inside my eye area. I'm feeling extreme pressure in my lacrimal sac ( near the tear duct ) and lacrimal gland near my eye brow.

I'm so frustrated. If anyone knows anything about this PLEASE HELP!!! The Dr copays are adding up and I'm getting to the point of not being able to afford this anymore.

I don't want to live the rest of my life like this but almost feel like I have to with no one knowing what my problem is.

Dear Squishy,

I wonder if you have floppy eyelid syndrome.

Since you've been to so many doctors already, I'd try seeing an oculoplastic specialist at a university ophthalmology program. There are other possible abnormalities of your lacrimal system which they would have most experience with.

Thank you so much. I just looked up the Oculoplastic Specialist on Wikipedia.com

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oculoplastics

This is exactly what I need. Why no one else has recommended this I will never understand but I appreciate you taking the time to do so...

I wish there was someone else on here who had the same problem that could relate to me and what I'm going through... It truly is a living hell and its getting worse and worse.

Thanks!!

Thought Id add this to my problem if helpful in finding out whats wrong with my eye ..

I have been on over the counter nasal spray for the last 10 years due to always having probelms breathing without it.

Could this have anything to do with the nasal spray possibly eating away at something inside my nose / sinus area where air can be getting trapped in my upper eye lid giving me headaches a lot of pressure in that area ?

How bad is this nasal spray Ive been using for so long ?

When visiting the last ENT Dr trying to figure out what my problem is, he told me right away to get off of the over the counter nasal spray and put me on something called nasonex. It works great but just costs A LOT more money.

Thanks!

Hi, I have the same type of issue going on, I have dry eye syndrome and have tear duct plugs on bottom tear ducts and on and off have the same squishiness on top eye lids right under brows that drives me crazy! It is sometimes one eye or both and sometimes it's there and sometimes it's not, but I have nasal/sinus issues too and get the pain and pressure right there as well.  It seems like the squishiness is more there when there's alot of pressure and pain there from sinus stuff not draining I guess and when I rub my eyes I hear the squishy sound like it's water there or air is trapped.  If you find out more please post it or let me know what the doctors tell you.  Thanks.

Not all the time but often when I rub my eyes, my tear ducts don't empty out and make that weird squishy noise. I'm not sure what it is. Hopefully, it isn't anything serious because it's been going on for a long time. And every morning I wake up with blood shot eyes. It's frightening. :(

I know how you feel. My right eye is bloodshot and i have varying degrees of blurred vision which seems to come and go, with no apparent cause?  I dont have headaches or migraines, and apart from a slight swollen sensation, there is no other obvious symptoms, but when i run my finger around my top eyelid, there is a distinct "squishing" sound which can be heard not only by me, but by others listening on? I am going to the optometrist this week to see if they can offer any explanation? I am 48 and in relatively good health, and this has only come on over the past 3-4 months?

Omg I read what you wrote and I think I'm experiencing close to the same thing! Well it started for me when I was 23 pregnant with my son the pressure behind my eyebrows was so bad and anything that moved in front of my face seemed to make it worse they thought it might be the pressure of being prego and said it would go away after he was born well it did not , they sent me to eye doc, nothing then I was sent to Neuro, they did cat scan, Mir and nothing so they wanted to do a spinal tap to see if I had pressure build up and those test came out inconclusive and I ended up in hospital for 2 wks with a spinal  when I got out nightspot as l I went to my Neuro to find out the results and he fricken referred me to a therapist! So I stopped seeing doctors cause I thought maybe it was in my head but I can't take it anymore! I can't enjoy anything my eyes hurt every second of the day and movement is horrible like if I'm driving and I need to use the windshield wipers I'm always agitated too and I feel bad because I snap at people do u have any of the other symptoms I talked about?

Its caused from staring at phone and tv screens to long with out the right amount of sleep also high blood pressure. overtime u start to break down and if you are not sleeping right your body cant heal its self. You need to try meditation or spend some time without any electricity or sound. Eat right. And sleep 8hrs and im telling u your body will restore to normal.

I'm 17 and for the past year and a bit, my left eye seems to be able to breathe, it makes a squishy sound when I rub it, it keeps feeling like it might be falling out, but, sometimes, my left eye also aches, waters for no reason and I feel like it is getting more blurry, more difficult to move it around and sometimes I feel like it has built up some sort of pressure. I don't usually ask about going to the doctor's or anything about things like this because usually when I do, I get told i'm just a hypochondriac and it isn't anything to worry about. I have searched through a few medical websites to see if I could figure it out, but I think I just keep scaring myself with it. Anyone got any ideas on what I should do? Baring in mind, I did have my anenoids taken out and i've had sets of grommets in my ears before, so I don't know if that's just messed up my sinuses up or what. If someone could give me some advice, it would be heavily appreciated.

First relax. you eye will not fall out of your head. Second relax. If you push on your eye (which you shouldn't do one reason why it may be sore and feel like it has pressure) it will make a squishy sound. The tear sac located below the inner lower lid has air in it and when pressed it will squish and pop. They eye has a cushion of fat in the orbit and same deal if you compress this fat it gets squishy. If you have not had a regular exam within a year or two by an ophthalmologist eye MD or optometrist schedule one for your own piece of mind. And in the meantime relax and quit pushing on your eye.
