Yes, stress can make your eyelid twitch. Personally, my eyelid twitches when I have big tests to take. There is no real way to fix this, except to destress. Also, you could consider reducing caffeine intake. Sincerely, Sean Adrean MD, FAAO READ MORE

Vitrectomies are used for retinal detachments, macular holes, epiretinal membranes, vitreous hemorrhage, floaters and many other indications.The above indications are the most common reason vitrectomies are performed Sincerely, Sean Adrean MD, FAAO Retina Consultants of Orange County READ MORE
I would always be careful not to get poked in the eye since that could potentially displace the LASIK flap. Also, patients after LASIK sometimes have dry eyes, so I would keep artificial tears handy as well. Sincerely, Sean Adrean MD, FAAO READ MORE
No, you don't need both eyes operated on. Sometimes one cataract is much worse than the other and the second eye can be monitored until the cataract worsens and affects your activities and function. Sincerely, Sean Adrean, MD, FAAO READ MORE
Yes! Please get evaluated by an ophthalmologist (an eye MD) very urgently! Sincerely, Sean Adrean MD, FAAO READ MORE
My mother is highly diabetic and is not able to see very clearly. Could it be the onset of glaucoma?
With diabetes for 19 years, I would be concerned with diabetic retinopathy. This can cause either swelling or bleeding in the retina and vitreousthat could lead to vision loss. Also, at this age, cataracts, which is a clouding of the lens, could be causing decreased vision. I would recommend thatshe see an ophthalmologist (an eye MD) or a retina surgeon to begin an evaluation of her. Sincerely, Sean Adrean MD, FAAO READ MORE
There are many possibilities as to why there could be intense pain and blurred vision. The best thing to do is to make a very urgent or emergent appointment with an ophthalmologist (an eye MD) so that they can determine the cause of this problem. This needs to be evaluated tomorrow. Sincerely, Sean Adrean MD READ MORE
Astigmatism is when the cornea is not spherical, but is shaped more like a football. When people look at you, they won't know if you have astigmatism. It isn't something anyone can see. But when you look out of an eye that has astigmatism, objects and images can be both blurred and even be tilted. The easiest way to correct astigmatism is to get prescription glasses. Depending on the prescription, contact lens may also be used to correct the astigmatism. Also LASIK or another refractive surgery may correct the astigmatism. READ MORE
