This is a completely benign condition....no worries! It is still possible that you have had this forever, and that your doctors in India did not mention it, since it has no medical problems.

In general, if things don't grow or change, they are benign. Hopefully your doctor has been documenting the size and color. Often, these can be removed, but I usually don't recommend it unless there is a problem such as discomfort or a change in size/color.

Hot compresses are best to allow continued drainage of the chalazion, and decrease the vision. Sometimes additional eyedrops are need as well, with some antibiotic and steroid mixed together. If the swelling is causing the need for glasses, that should get better when you eye lid is better!

Black spots or floaters in the vision can be a sign of serious problems like retinal detachment or tearing. You need to call an eye doc asap and get an urgent appointment!

Glasses are definitely an option for you to correct driving! In addition, your surgeon may be able to offer more RK, or LASIK or astigmatism surgery as an enhancement. The RK definitely complicates things on all fronts...it is difficult for surgeons to calculate the lens power as exactly as in a patient who hasn't had other surgery. In addition, your...

I took a look at your video, and there is significant droop or lag in your left eye. There are many causes for this problem. 2 things you definitely need to do. See your regular medical doctor, and ask for some basic blood work, including a thyroid workup. You also need to have your eye doctor take a really good look at your eyelid function.

Your symptoms sound like a vitreous detachment, which is a pretty harmless (if somewhat alarming!) problem. The issue with flashers and floaters is that they can also be a sign of retinal tear or detachment. When you say you have seen an 'eye doctor', I would make sure that you have seen an MD or DO, not an optometrist. You may also want to consider...

Your floaters are not connected to the eyedrops or use of your phone/computer. Floaters are however a possible sign of serious eye problems! You should call your eye doctor immediately and tell them that you have new floaters. Your eyes should be examined within a day or two to rule out retinal tearing or retinal detachment.

I agree with Dr. McGarity's comments thus far. Double vision after any lens implant surgery is most often caused by astigmatism, less often by lens tilt. Dry eye can also cause some shadowing or doubling in the vision. Restasis is a long-term treatment for dry eye that may be helpful. If astigmatism is present, without lens tilt, then other surgerie...
