Dry Eyes, in one eye

    My girlfriend has recently been suffering with what would appear to be
    dry eyes, however, it is only affecting one eye. Until 12 months ago,
    she was happily wearing Contacts but then developed pain in her left
    eye whenever she was wearing them, She was referred to an
    opthamologist, who could see nothing wrong with her eyes, and just
    told her there was nothing wrong, now for the past week, the pain has
    been getting steadily worse, first it was just at night, now it is all
    day too. Has anyone ever heard of Dry eyes only affecting one eye, or
    is this something completely different?

    Thanks in advance

    Well, it might well be something completely different, BUT it is not
    unusual for one eye to be drier than the other. I saw an example of
    that today in a woman whose left contact lens dried out faster than the
    right contact lens.

    Another simple case of mental strain.

    The cure, quickest and simpliest, is the sun-gazing process according
    to Dr. Bates or also following the HRM protocol (www.solarhealing.com).

    Don't follow the injurios comments of the pros.

    Remove the contacts forever.

    I goes without saying and is patently obvious, and I am violating one
    of the cardinal rules of news groups by responding, but please ignore
    the rantings of the most infamous of all NG gadflies, Rishi the caveman
    from Italy.

    I think you may have understood, as i was tired when typing the
    message. My Girlfriend has not work the contacts for 12 months, and
    until last week, she felt no pain, then in the past week the pain has
    got progressivly worse, to the point where it is affecting her sleep
    (and mine). I don't think this is related to the contacts, i think it
    is more her eyes. We went to the doctors yesterday (Tuesday) and he
    has referred her to an opthamologist, and also a neurologist, as he
    thinks it could be a nerval thing. Hopefully she will get sorted soon,
    as i have slept for a total of 4.5 hours in 3 days!

    Thanks for the replies anyway.

    I didn't misunderstand. You asked the question about whether one eye
    could be asymmetrically dries than the other, and my response was that
    it frequently occurs. I used a recent case involving a contact lens
    patient as an example. I also said that your girlfriend may NOT be
    suffering from dry eye. However, any discomfort that does not go away
    upon removal of the contact lens, and is so bad as to interfere with
    sleep, does need to be seen by an eye specialist. It's useless to
    speculate in a NG with so little information.

    Yes, they will go on and on in finding useless things, now nerve
    complaints, of all sorts, but the truth is only one, you Girlfriend
    suffers from mental strain due to mistreatment of imperfect sight.

    I am certain that she has been deprived of sunlight from several years
    (contacts deprive the eye of sunlight more than eyeglasses), so now the
    symptoms are surfacing.

    I am open to challenge, if I am right, that no doctor will help her,
    what will you do?

    Keep me posted, I am very interested in your case because of the stupid
    comments the idiot has written one message above.

    Clearly, this sort of mental strain can only be worsened by reading
    what Rishi writes.
    I am equally certain that Rishi's brain has been deprived of oxygen
    for a similar length of time.
    Certainly, buying a 1920's book (that has been dismissed as quackery
    time and again) is always an option: http://snipurl.com/dqpf
    If nothing else (and this *is* the case), Rishi can surpass the
    stupidity of *any* comments you'll find on this newsgroup. It can be
    quite entertaining (like watching "Shrek," for example), provided you
    don't look for anything helpful in his words.

    This Neil Brooks is really a very stubborn idiot.

    I'm sorry for him but what I am saying is the truth and everybody can
    prove it for himself or herself.

    What to do?

    I won't stop talking because this idiot is so much a stubborn idiot
    that deserves respect.

    It truly deserves respect of high standing.

  10. Hi Rob
    sense.

    The left eye and left side of the body are connected to the right
    hemisphere.

    Because we are verbal animals and language is primarily a left brain
    activity there can be a tendency for our more irrational or emotional
    side to exist in a more unconscious form in the right brain.
    Scientists have argued whether the more or less mute right brain is in
    fact the unconscious. No clear answers are available.

    So.....wetness in the eyes is often a response to emotion. Even joy can
    create wetness. Lack of wetness could be as a result of suppression of
    emotion.

    Shortsighted people tend to be excessively verbal intellectual logical,
    they do well on tests that measure that kind of intelligence but
    emotionally they are not so skillful.

    Can you think of something that she might be quite upset about that she
    is avoiding expressing emotionally? Talking that over with her might
    help. Its worth a go anyway:)

    good luck

    Andrew

    Hi Rob!

    Did this help? I'll bet that reading this post wet both your eyes, and
    possibly something else too!

    Cheers!

    Dear Andrew,

    Do you interpret a cut finger as having a behavioral cause? How about
    skin cancer? Did it occur to you that this woman may have a serious
    medical condition that will not respond to psychotherapy?

    It's difficult to understand why the eye cannot respond to therapy or
    treatments.
