I am asking for help with a serious problem, that I haven’t been able to solve for more than three years. Even small effort makes my eyes hurt, so I almost can't read nor use any electronic devices. This state progresses with time. In the last year I have been having severe headaches every time I overuse my eyes. Now eyes are so strained, that I almost always have a headache. It's difficult to look in general, such as when driving, doing shopping, talking to people.
I exactly remember, when the problem began. I overloaded my eyes preparing for a test. Ever since then they are always strained (feeling like the eye muscles are cramping, or like if something is squeezing my eyes). Even smallest effort causes dull pain at the back of my eyes. If I continue to strain them the pain becomes sharp.
During this time over fifteen different doctors (ophthalmologists, neurologist, neuroophtalmologist, otolaryngologist, optometryst) examined my eyes and haven’t found any problems. Besides several eye exams I had brain MRI, blood test for leucocyte, vitamin D and thyroids, CT of sinuses. The only problem they have found is mild convergence insufficiency but it can not cause such severe symptoms.
I tried treating convergence insufficiency. I was doing some exercises (using brock string and some mechanized equipment). Also tried a few kinds of glasses (with prism and also Neurolense technology). Nothing helped.
Also I have dry eyes and use eye drops “Restasis”. They help with dryness, but don't eliminate the other symptoms.
If that matters, I was 25 when it started, now I'm 29 years old. I never had eye problems before, and my eye site is normal. But just looking and keeping my eyes open is harder and harder...
Hope for your advice.
