Eyes not perfectly symmetrical

Hi doctor! Im 17 years old and i have recently noticed a deviation in my left eye. My eyes were always symetrical. I always thought that eyes could get misalligned when you're a child. Lately, I have been having a lot of stress and but I have no severe head injury or eye muscle injury. I have also been feeling a pulling sensation around the eyes.  I went down to the eye doctor to get my eyes checked but he said that my eyes are fine. but I have actually noticed a slight change in my left eye. Maybe it was so slight that the eye doctor thought it was normal. I am nearsighted and my left eye is better vision than my right eye but no double vision at all . Could the stress have caused the misalignment? And can it be prevented from getting worse?

No stress can not cause misalignment. It may be that your facial features are assympetrical and make your eyes appear crossed when they aren't. this is called pseudo-strabismus.

Your other option see an pediatric strabismus ophthalmologist. Find one at www.aao.org
