opening one eye


Posted by becca , Jun 10,2001,16:16   Archive
Good afternoon eveyone, I have a question for you... my left eye is the one that most of the time is half opened, but lately my right eye will open and the left will not. I can switch and I notice that I switch when either side is tired. is this normal? oh, but I can not open both of them at the same time. give me some feedback, what do think?

Hi becca, I don't have an answer for you, but wanted to bump you back up to the top of the page again so you'd stay on the front page a little longer to give someone else a chance to answer you.
I really don't know what is going on. It may have something to do with your botox but it doesn't sound typical either. I'd call your doctor's office and ask his nurse to ask him if he has any ideas about it or if he wants you to come in for an appointment.

Hi Becca

Not quite the same as you but I find that when I am having a lot of spasms and I really need to see, eg driving - I will shut one eye and use the other one. This seems to work for short periods. Not a good solution, though.

Hi Becca,Most of the time both eyes close at the same time,but the last few days my right shuts & the left stays open.When they both shut the left one will open & the right stays shut.This is the first they have did this.
I am going to St. Louis tommorow for my injections& will ask the doctor about it.He has clinic on Wed.but they have so many to do they are giving them on Tues also.

Hi Becca, I have the problem of one eye wanting to stay half-closed and if I force it open, the other one wants to partially close. This is not too much of a problem when I am at home, especially if I'm here alone, but when I go out it is very apparent. I get my Botox next week and intend to ask the doctor about it then.

My left eye has always been the worst eye, but at times I have experienced exactly what you described, which is weird. This disorder is weird any way you look at it.
