  • Yes, it is normal to have floaters in eyes. For those who've never experienced this phenomenon like you, eye floaters are little oddly shaped objects that appear in your vision, and it makes you feel terrible but it is just very normal. It often occurs when one looks at bright light such as a blue sky. Their shapes vary greatly, but will often appear as spots, cobwebs, or randomly shaped stringy objects. For the cause, you should know that any eye condition in which the clarity of the vitreous humor is altered can produce the symptom of eye floaters. Eye floaters are associated with the retinopathy of retinal tears, retinal detachment, and large degrees of nearsightedness. So for your situation, I suggest you should go and see a doctor as soon as possible.

  • It looks like you are worried about the possibility that warm compress would lead to some blurry vision. On the contrary, warm compress could help with your eye strain, relieving your eye infections and traumas ,etc. But you should bear in mind that never get across the line, so you should not get too much warm compresses to your eyes for fun. Just take good care of your eyes, if something's wrong with your eyes, just visit a doctor and take relevant actions.

  • First of all, check the weight of your glasses. Glass lenses are usually heavy while plastic lenses are lighter. Then you can let the glasses lens touch your cheek. If you feel much cool, then they are made of glass. If you feel room temperature, then they are made of plastic. Plastic lenses are easy to get scratched while glass lenses are not.

  • Well, sometimes some diseases will show no signs and indications, therefore, it would be very hard for you to detect. However, red eye would not necessarily mean pink eyes, maybe you just have a lack of sleep recently. Have you been sleeping well? But if you have the feeling for a few days in a row, then probably there is something wrong with your eyes. I recommend you get some eye drops to help.

  • Well, it can be watery eyes. In my opinion, it is very normal to have this situation. The light is so strong that when we open our eyes to see it and our eyes are so very sensitive that they will react to the stimulation from sun light. So when the sunlight is getting into our eyes, it will make our eyes to adjust to it. And then that is why your eye is watery. Besides, there are many dirty objects in the air, and your eyes are different from each other, when faced with the dirty objects. One eye can be infected easily, leading to watery eyes. In this situation, maybe you should go and see a doctor so that you can talk about your problems, then can have the eye exam.

  • The stuffy nose is not a symptom of blocked tear ducts. Poor development of tear ducts or some illness of eye organization will lead to the blocked tear ducts. The eyeballs secrete tears every now and then; normal people will drain the tears into the nasal cavity. And people can hardly notice this process. If the tear ducts are blocked, the symptom is to keep running tear not the stuffy nose.

  • Sure. Even though Laser eye surgery for astigmatism is more complex than the surgeries for myopia or hyperopia, it is very effective for astigmatism correction. There are three types of laser eye surgery for astigmatism correction. They are LASIK, LASEK, and PRK. If you want to have laser eye surgery to correct astigmatism, you should talk to your surgeon to determine what type of eye surgery is suitable for you. The three types of eye surgery are all effective for correcting astigmatism, but there can be risks and complications, too.

  • No, just like the eyeglasses, the contact lenses also have their own sizes according to the base curves sized. You may base on your size of the eyeballs to choose the contact lenses. That is why a lot of people will go to have an eye exam before buying the contact lenses.

  • First of all do not overuse the eye drops, do more exercises to help to protect your eyes. When the eye drops go to your throat, It is common and very harmless. You do not have to worry about this, if you really feel uncomfortable to taste the eye drops, do not put too much eye drops into your eyes, drink some water to wash it away from your throat when you feel it come to your throat.

  • Yes, there are some side effects of swimming with contact lenses. How bad is the influence depends on the water body that you swim in. If you swim in lakes or rivers, there is a kind of microorganism called called acanthamoeba. It will adhere to your contact lenses and cause infection and inflammation on your cornea. If you swim in pool, there are some chemical additives like chlorine which will stick to your contacts and become a factor of risk. If you swim in the ocean, strong waves can wash and dislodge your contact lenses. Above all, you have risks of infection or inflammation on your cornea, no matter what kind of water you swim in. It is best for you not to swim with contact lenses. Or wear a pair of prescription goggles.
