I am 48, and neither the optomotrist nor the opthamologist believed I had anything but a "lazy eye" which I'd supposedly lived with my whole life and not noticed until three months ago. I described the sudden onset of nearsightedness in my left eye again and again and the opthamologist rather unwillingly dilated my pupils and then grudgingly (I'm serious) told me that I did have a tiny cataract in my left eye but I may still have a lazy eye. Furthermore there was nothing to do about yet, but she would see me again in 6 months, goodbye. She did not address the symptoms I also have of my eyes constantly tearing. I am attempting to get an appointment with another opthamolagist but am interested in what is causing the tearing and what caused the cataract. I'm fairly healthy otherwise, and even have been doing the juicing that is recommended for improving eye health for over a year without having yet experienced the eye problems. Also am on a regular exercise program and have been for years. I am peri-menopausal I believe as I've experienced some "hot flash" stuff but not lately, and have irregular periods. I mention this because I read that "dry eyes" if that is what I have, can be a symptom of menapause.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
