for the past 2-3 weeks, I have noticed a pain at certain times when I move my right eye.
Overview of my condition:
48 yrs old
very active and fit
Very near near sighted, with astigmatism
I received new lenses in the spring, no real problems until recently.
While riding my bike in the rain over a month ago, I got some sweat and road spray in my right eye that stung quite a bit.
Other symptoms- Sometimes eye seems ok, doesn't hurt continuously on movement. Eyeball Seems sore to the touch on the upper eye at times, no redness or noticeable swelling. No blurriness or loss of vision. Minor occasional headaches, but not bad enough to take aspirin, etc.
If I had to guess, it feels like the muscles are sore. Also have noticed a sensation in muscles when I chew.
I went to an opthamologist a few days ago, he did some visual examinations, put some dyes or drops in my eye, looked at the eye through a blue-ish light, as well as with a white light. I don't know what he checked, but he said he did not see anything "bad" and thought that this would go away, if not, come back and see him. Somewhat unsatisfactory.
On the quick optometry type exam, I noticed that the right eye prescription had changed more than the left eye. I may be at the point of needing bifocals.
1. Could this be due to an imbalance in the prescription, from eye strain?
2. Did the opth check condition of my retina?
3. Could it be an infection of either the eye muscles oroptic nerve?
4. Could it be something more serious like a brain tumor?
thanks for the help
