1. See a Eye MD ophthalmologist for an eye exam. If you have double vision or your lids droop ask him to order blood tests to rule out myasthenia gravis.
2. See a GP or Internist for a complete physician exam to be sure you are not anemia, hypothyroid, diabetic, etc.
hey there, i seem to have the same problem. my eyes feel heavy and tired all the time. i am super healthy and only eat organic food. dont eat meat. anyways i have been observing that different kinds of water cursing this problem. for me the worse is untreated well and spring water. i am assuming its some kinda bacteria effecting my liver. liver is connected to eyes. but i could be totally wrong. i am going to get some water samples soon and a filter and then we will see weather i was right or not.
the doctors recommendation dont seem wrong either.
Would Hypothyroid cause this heaviness? I am experiencing it, also. Much worse in tha past 3 weeks...I had my thyroid removed and just found out the mediciaiton I am taking isn't enough. It was increased but I just received the prescription, so I haven't started taking the higher dose yet.
If so, do you know how long it takes to see results?
yes hypothroidism can cause a wide variety of side effects such as weight gain, cold intolerance, decreased energy and libido, and "tired eyes".
people respond differently to thyroid replacement so i don't think i can generalize so I would suggest you discuss with your personal MD who is working to regulate your thyroid levels.
In Chinese medicine "heavy eyes" is a Yin and Yang Heel Vessel imbalance. Too much yin is flowing to the eyes through the Yin Heel Vessel. I recommend seeing a acupuncturist to correct the problem your having with your eyes.
I have a similar problem, my eyes always feel tired, is hard some time to focus whit them. I know I need glasses but when I wear them it hurts and makes me feel sleepy. I also some times confuse some words with others.... what can I do? thank you
Go for a second opinion to an Eye MD ophthalmologist
