I have been diagnosed with accommodative spasm on my left eye for 10 months. My eye is tired and strain (painful) after focus looking at something or reading for a period of time, especially when I use computer. In addition to the muscle strain, I also have photophobia and my eye is also very allergic and easy to get dry. I got this problem when my cornea was hurt and it persist even after the cornea was heal (my ESR and RA factor was high as the same time). Cycloplegic refraction is different from the normal refraction. I can see 20/20 and no blurry vision. I have seen many ophthalmologists but don’t help much. Tried atropine but didn’t help. I have been wearing a less corrective glasses for 6 months but still doesn’t help. Recently, I am also trying a reading glasses for near work but still doesn’t help. My job need me to use computer all day so it bothers me a lot. My doctor recommends me to seek help in US top eye institute as he suspects accommodative spasm is not the only problem.
I would be highly appreciated if you could you advise:
If accommodative spasm associate with allergy, dryness and photophobia as well?
Do you think I have other underlying problems apart from accommodative spasm?
I am looking to see the ophthalmologist (Dr Goldberg) in Jules Stein Eye Institute, do you think it is the right route?
Thanks a lot!I
