for the past week or so, i've been experiencing a visual "shake" in my left eye. As an example, when I cover my right eye, and focus on an object with my left, the item i'm focused on kinda pulses. It kinda shifts then returns, shifts, then returns, repeat, etc. Any ideas, it's starting to give me headaches.
This sounds like my problem, which has been getting worse over the last 9 months or so. My left eye seems entirely normal, but the vision in my right eye sometimes becomes tilted (about 25 degrees, maybe) and shakes -- almost as if the muscle is twitching from strain. The double vision is strange -- i'm seeing two horizon lines, one horizontal and the other a few centimeters higher and on a crazy incline. And my eye starts to hurt, and I sometimes get headaches.
My opthalmologist has tried eye drops and three different eyeglass prescriptions for me -- various combinations of magnification and prisms designed to lessen eyestrain and correct misaligned vision. Nothing has worked. In fact, it seems to be getting worse.
I'm a writer by trade, so this condition makes my life extremely difficult. Does anyone have any ideas?
