Vision Q&A
with Mark Pophal, M.D.

Dr. Pophal would like to remind you that without an exam many of your questions cannot be properly answered.

Your vision is important and should not be taken for granted, or taken lightly. It is wise to see an eye doctor right away if you have questions or problems with your eyes or vision.

Useful information can be found at the American Academy of Ophthalmology website

Q. I am nearsighted in my left eye and have been wearing a contact for about 2 years now.

For the past 6 months I have noticed that my left eye seems to be pulling to the left a bit, making it appear slightly larger than my right eye. What can remedy this problem?

A. Without an exam I cannot prescribe a remedy. But it is an important matter so I strongly advise you to discuss it with your doctor.

Q. Hi, when I wake up I find crusts on the corners of my lashes sometimes some pus,and my upper eyelids are swollen(but not red and I can open my eyes easily)and stay like that for the rest of the day.

I wear daily contact lenses and mascara everyday. What is this from and how can I get the swelling down? Thanks

A. When your doctor is able to ascertain all of the facts he may decide this is contact lens over wear. I suggest you talk to him/her.
