  • I think ear infection will not cause lazy eye. Lazy eye can be called amblyopia. It is a developmental problem in the brain. Lazy eye can be caused by strabismus which means the muscles that position our eyes are unable to function normally. And it can be caused by anisometropic amblyopia or stimulus deprivation amblyopia too. If you have lazy eyes you must see an eye doctor immediately.

  • Yes, it is true that you will lose the peripheral vision when you stare at something too long. And the disappearing time may be about 30 seconds. Actually, our peripheral vision is so weak. Human mainly use the focused vision to see things. Thus, it is the normal state. About the peripheral vision, people could do the eyes health exercise to improve.

  • Yes, it is very normal. You don't have to worry about it at all. Tear is very important to our eyes. It is composed of water, protein, mucus, anti-bacterial agents and so on. It could lubricate our eyes so that we can rotate our eyeballs without discomforts and grittiness. The anti-bacterial agents could kill 90% of bacteria in eyes to control infections. Meanwhile it can also nourish the eyes with protein. When we are coughing, sneezing and vomiting, we all tend to have watery eyes and bloodshot in eyes.

  • Well, it depends. This mainly depends on what kind of eye injury you have got. As far as what I know, astigmatism is usually caused especially when you wear your contacts. Because the lenses can usually hurt your eyes. Besides, there are also a lot of other people who get this disease because they just get it since born. In a word, astigmatism can be caused by an eye injury, surgery or certain kind of eye disease.

  • Yes, if you buy eyeglasses, it is necessary to add your eyeglasses lenses to anti-reflective coating. As we know, out life now rely on many lighting subjects such as computers, lights etc. And those equipment will release many reflective light which is harm to eyes. So, i think it is necessary to shield eyes with anti-reflective lenses. Anyway, it won't cost you too much to add anti-reflective coating.

  • Personally, I think it is very effective and necessary. I have myopia and really love sports. But wearing ordinary glasses is very uncomfortable when I do intense campaign, and the ordinary glasses fall to the ground easily after sweating. Bad luck, your lonely glasses can be stepped on broken by somebody else. And there are more dangerous situations. Once I played basketball wearing regular glasses, the result is that somebody broke it on my face, and the broken glasses stabbed on my eyelid, fortunately not my eyeballs. Then I began to wear prescription sports glasses. It is very comfortable to wear prescription sports glasses. Compared with the ordinary glasses, its durability is much better, and it can reduce the damage that strong light gives when you do sports outdoor. Prescription sports glasses can be bought in a lot of places. For example, I have bought my prescription sports glasses at https://www.sportsprescriptionglasses.co.uk/, and the price is not expensive.

  • If your eyes water and tear when you are reading or watching television, it is probably because your eyes are dry! The excess tearing is really a response to the irritation caused by the eyes being too dry. Artificial tears are the basic treatment for dry eyes. They should be used frequently enough to keep the eyes comfortable. If you use tears only two or three times a day, then you can probably use tears that come in a bottle.

  • According to what you have said, it is ocular muscle convulsion, namely eye twitching. The common reasons of it are overuse of the eyes, eye fatigue, excessive tension of your mind, such as manipulating computer too long time or suffering great pressure before an examination. In addition, incorrect optic refraction, myopia, long sight or astigmatism can also cause eye twitching. Through relieving the pressure and taking a good rest, it can recover.

  • As far as contacts go, there is an infectious/inflammatory process occurring in/around your eyes, so it's best to not wear the contacts...you could end up with a corneal infection. See your eye doctor to resolve the issue and get an updated pair of glasses--never know when you'll need them.

  • As far as I can see, headache is one of the symptoms for people who caught glaucoma. But once glaucoma cured, the symptom should disappear. So I suggest you to go to see a doctor to make sure what the problem is. There are some ways to prevent glaucoma: to maintain happy mood and good sleep, to avoid overworking, not to eat and drink too much to do more exercise, to eat more honey and to get tested regularly. Old people should pay more attention to it.
