One eye consistently sees dimmer than the other, why?
I have visited with an opthamologist and general eye doctor but no one found any abnormalities with either one of my eyes. So I am asking anyone here for help. My right eye has always had weaker vision than my left eye. I try to exercise my right eye, but my brain always uses the left dominant eye. During each right eye exercise, which consists of placing a cotton patch over my left eye whereby forcing my right eye to be the dominant eye, everything is dimmer. Then after a few minutes I remove the patch from my left eye and the brightness contrast between both eyes is off as if I am wearing one sunglass lense over my right eye. Literally, it is that stark of a contrast. This fades as my brain, forces itself to see through the left eye since it can see clearer and brighter. As a result, my right eye never seems to get fixed. What is the matter? The vision problems is not that off by eye (20/30 in my left eye and 20/60 in my right eye). The doctors ruled out glaucoma. Please help, this has been going on for over a year now.
